I'm not quite certain what your y axis label is to be, but you could use a Row construction to format the label. Plot[x, {x, 0, 1}, AxesLabel -> {"Wavelength (\[Mu]m)", Row[{"Solar Irradiance ", W/(m^2), " \[Mu]m"}]}] David Park djmpark at comcast.net http://home.comcast.net/~djmpark/ From: Jeff Lawlis [mailto:jlawlis at allendalecolumbia.org] I can't seem to get my axis labels formatted correctly in Mathematica 7. I would like to have a string expression followed by a fraction in parentheses, but the string expression appears in the numerator, instead of in front of the fraction. Here is my expression for SetOptions: SetOptions[ListLinePlot,AxesLabel -> {"Wavelength (\[Mu]m)", Solar Irradiance \!\( "W" \/ "\!\(\*SuperscriptBox[\"m\", \"2\"]\)\[Mu]m"\)}] I have also tried the frontend graphics interface to enter fractions, with the same result.
