Otherwise the result of Histogram is a Graphics object, the bins can be obtained from the parameters to the Rectangle expressions in that that object which can be obtained as follows: << Graphics`Graphics` <<Statistics`NormalDistribution` obj = Histogram[RandomArray[NormalDistribution[], 100]]; bins=Cases[obj, Rectangle[__], Infinity]/.Rectangle[{l_, b_}, {r_, t_}] -> {l, r} Regards, Ssezi
