In[44]:= data = Table[ {x, Sin[x]},{x, 0, 10}]; In[45]:= gr1 = ListPlot[ data ] Out[45]= -Graphics- In[46]:= gr2 = gr1 /. Point[{x_,y_}] :> { Text[ x , {x, y}] } Out[46]= -Graphics- In[47]:= Show[ gr2 ] Out[47]= -Graphics- I hope this helps. --Ian ----------------------------------------------------------- Ian Collier Technical Sales Support Wolfram Research, Inc. ----------------------------------------------------------- tel:(217)-398-0700 fax:(217)-398-0747 ianc at wri.com Wolfram Research Home Page: http://www.wri.com/ -----------------------------------------------------------
