Roger, I'm sorry I wasn't clear in my question.
Now I realize that what I would like to do is label each of the -rcap- whisker bars from the graph below with the text contained in a variable <idstr>. I have seen in -whelp axis_label_options- that one can manually specify text, but don't see how to specify text from a variable.
Michael



In reply to your second query, the -ylabel()- option has a -valuelabel-
suboption, allowing you to type

ylabel(1 2, valuelabel)

which should cause value labels to be printed.
