Thank you all very much for your assistance. One more issue I do have is creating a label for the x-axis. If I specificy xlab = "" within the barplot(), it get overwritten by the category labels. I tried to add one below that with text( locator( 1 ), "x-axis label" ), but it seems that it won't insert the text below a certain threshold. Is there a way around this?
Thanks again.
