Dear David,

Thanks for your input, but it seems I'm still missing something:

This gives me a superfluous "1" below each bar (and below that the
wanted text.

graph bar (mean) Nose= BiopNose Kidney= BiopKidney ///
 Lung= BiopLung Skin= BiopSkin Muscle= BiopMuscle, ///
 ascategory  showyvars nolabel

Actually, there is another way which may be better (and as it happens
is in the dialog box): use the option -ascategory- to treat the y
variables as if they were the first (and in this case only) -over()-
category. This also makes all the bars look the same and puts gaps
between them, avoiding most of the rest of your code. You will still
want -nolabel- to label them with variable names instead of labels
("mean of...").

You need the options -showyvars- and -nolabel- instead of -blabel(name)-.

Ah, that works. Thanks a lot. I overlooked it. Doesn't seem to be in
the -graph bar- menu either. Help file says it is "rarely specified".
I'm doing something very unusual, it seems.
