Matt- In Martin's solution, the x is just a dummy. The rows are the contents - means of the var1 .. Varn - for each value of x, which in this case is just a single dummy entry. The columns are the values of rep78 - which are labels by their values Thanks for your thoughts - I'm thinking there is already a way to do this that I'm somehow overlooking, because it seems like a common function.
