I don't know how to create a function with input contain string.

Maybe the following will help: Plott[data_, labelX_String, labelY_String] := Plot[Evaluate[Sequence @@ data], AxesLabel -> {labelX, labelY}] Plott[{Sin[x], {x, 1, 10}}, "x vals", "y vals"] > Is there any way can simplify the plot command? Or to have an systematic way to create plots with specific format? You should have a look at the built-in function *SetOptions* http://reference.wolfram.com/mathematica/ref/SetOptions.html Regards, -- Jean-Marc
