Subject:      bar labels in base v. 11.5
Content-type: text/plain; charset=US-ASCII

Dear list members:

I have recently upgraded to v.11.5. I need to produce a clustered bar graph representing 2 variables related to home-raised chickens (presence of food in the coop, presence of water in the coop). Each variable was observed one time per week for 8 weeks in 12 households. The graph will display the percentage of corrals in which food & water was present when the observer arrived.

I would like to include bar lables (what Excel calls "data labels") that show the specific percent observed each week. Two problems:

1. I want the label to display as a 3 digit number, two integers + one decimal place (e.g., 57.2%) SPSS produces the labels as a two digit integer (e.g., 57). I cannot find a way to include a decimal place or % sign.

2. I would like to rotate the text of the label 90 degrees to display vertically along the length of the bar instead of horizontally.

I'm not finding formatting options to do either of these things. Does anyone know if this is possible?

Many thanks,
