Thank you Michael. That is exactly how I am doing them (using the record) feature. The problem is that I am doing 20 graphs on each of 700 sites and outputting them to a series of reports. To run the recorded routine, I have to display each graph. That is, I can not use the -nodraw- option!! Ricardo Ovaldia, MS Statistician Oklahoma City, OK --- On Thu, 6/10/10, Michael N.
