You should be able to do this with graphs in Version 12. At least, I have been able to change single bar colors using the beta version. I assume they will keep that feature.

I'm hoping SPSS will direct effort into not just improving statistical capabilities but examine what we're doing with the data and streamline the process. first, great strides need to be made with the graphing! then onward to the dissemination issues.

Monica and Myles, I have faced the same problem as well and find that it's easier to export the data to Excel and make the charts there. Clunky but effective. If you find a better solution, let me know. Cathy Brawner
