Matthias, The labels are there - but they are covered up by the bars which extend in the negative direction. You can get, more or less, what you want by using the AxesFront -> True option. But to obtain this you must load the FilledPlot package. (Why or why won't WRI make AxesFront a general Graphics option?) Thus, this will uncover the labels: Needs["Graphics`Graphics`"] Needs["Graphics`FilledPlot`"] Show[BarChart[{-12, -18, -12, -7}, BarLabels -> {"< 1%", "1%-2%", "2%-3%", ">3%"}, AxesFront -> True], BarChart[{8, 18, 14, 10}, BarStyle -> {RGBColor[0, 0, 1]}, BarLabels -> {"< 1%", "1%-2%", "2%-3%", ">3%"}, AxesFront -> True]] David Park djmp at earthlink.net http://home.earthlink.net/~djmp/ > From: Matthias.Bode at oppenheim.de [mailto:Matthias.Bode at oppenheim.de] To: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net > Dear colleagues, > > with > << Graphics`Graphics` > > this > > Show[BarChart[{-12, -18, -12, -7}, > BarLabels -> {"< 1%", "1%-2%", "2%-3%", ">3%"}], > BarChart[ {8, 18, 14, 10}, BarStyle -> {RGBColor[0, 0, 1]}, > BarLabels -> {"< 1%", "1%-2%", "2%-3%", ">3%"}]] > > produces three bar charts. > Only the second one shows the bar labels. > I need the bar labels in the combined chart along the x-axis.
