Have you considered the error bar or dropline
charts in Statistics? They default to vertical lines, but that is
easy to reverse.

Dot Charts with single dot per line a la Bill
Thank you. Those are those are the kinds of graphs
I had in mind,
Since R can be called from SPSS, do you have SPSS syntax to do this task?

The dotchart() function in R will accommodate this action fairly easily
if you can not find a SPSS fix.
A simple set of R syntax (about baseball, of course!) follows:
On1stBase <- c(3,4,1,2,4,2,3,6,1,0,
 3 4 1 2 4 2 3 6 1 0 6 3 3 5 2 1 3 7 1 3 5 3

Going beyond this simple example, look at http://polisci.msu.edu/jacoby/research/dotplots/tpm/Jacoby,%20Dotplots,%20TPM%20Draft.pdf
and give attention to Figure 4 (R syntax begin on p. 11 and Figure 4 is
on the last page of this document).
