The following syntax labels each point of the scatter plot using the ID variable.

-----Original Message----- From: SPSSX(r) Discussion [mailto:SPSSX-L@LISTSERV.UGA.EDU]On Behalf Of Brian Moore Sent: May 18, 2004 4:43 PM To: SPSSX-L@LISTSERV.UGA.EDU Subject: Labeling Points in a scatterplot

Hi all-

I did a search of the archives and found my exact question (asked in January of 1997), but not an answer. Is there any way to label the points on a scatter plot? For example instead of having a large legend with a 15 symbols of different colors for 15 classes of observations ranging from 1 to 15, I'd like to use the case numbers as the symbols and have the legend read: case # variable label. Label cases by and set markers in the GUI aren't quite doing it for me.

Thanks, Brian
