I previously asked about two problems I am having with MultipleListPlot. Regarding my first question, I received several responses which directed me to the use of sequence to flatten a list of lists for the argument. Thanks for the help -- the technique is used in the example below. Regarding my second question, relating to the tendency of MultipleListPlot, when contrained by a PlotRange argument, to go ahead and plot data points over the plot label, several asked for an example, which I provide below. If you execute these cells several times, you will not have to wait long to see data points -- but not the joining lines -- plot right over the plot label, even though they are out of range. Any ideas? data = Table[{n,Random[]},{4},{n,10}]; MultipleListPlot[Sequence@@data, PlotJoined->True] MultipleListPlot[Sequence@@data, PlotJoined->True, PlotRange -> {.2,.7}, PlotLabel-> "Test Label\nLabel Line 2\nLabel Line 3"] David Keith <dkeith@hevanet.com> wrote in article <69nbkv$89r@smc.vnet.net>... > I am using MultipleListPlot to plot data previously acquired and stored > as space delimited numbers in newline delimited records.
