Thanks Martin,
It worked! However, I want to show the data as scatter plot with all the values are represented as dots plus an indicator bar beside every scatter blot to show the mean and sd. If it is not possible, then I can use your idea of combining box plot with scatter plot as the 2nd graph to the right. 
So, could you help with making scatter plot instead of graph bar (on the 2nd graph) 
OR to add the sd value to the top of each graph bar as a whiskers? 

Best regards,
Amr
