Thanks Daniel, But I think it is really me... :) I have a mental block or an "old age" block but I can not make sense out of the documentaion on ShowLegend.... :( Here is what I do. Needs["PlotLegends`"] a = Table[{i,i^2},{i,1,20}]; b = Table[{i,i^3},{i,1,20}]; ListLinePlot[a, PlotStyle -> {Red}] (* I get a nice graph of my data *) (* Here I would like to put a Legend showing the color and name of the plot *) ShowLegend[ ListLinePlot[a, PlotStyle->{Red}], Legend[{Red,"Line a"}] ] And it does NOT work.... I get the following as output ShowLegend[Picture of the plot, Legend[RGBColor[1,0,0],Line a}]] I tried different ways, but to no avail...! If I can get something, I want to put both plots a and b on the same graph and a legend showing the right color with the right name. The actual plot I need to do is with 5 plots. So please... HELP maybe by explaining step by step how to do it. I really feel stupid not being able to make sense at something that should be simple. And I have to say that I've been using Mathematica since version 4. What a shame for me to be stuck like that! But, I think that MathGroup is there to help people like me here and laugh after they press the Return key ! :-) Thanks again, Robert Robert Pigeon
