ListPlot[ Table[ {k, PDF[BinomialDistribution[50, 0.3], k]}, {k, 0, 30}], Filling -> Axis, FillingStyle -> Thick] Bob Hanlon ---- "Michael A.

Given the nature of the function, I believe its clearest to represent the values using bars rather than points. I know there's a BarChart function, but it isn't as easy to use (e.g. you can't just give it a list of x, y coordinates and you can't easily have overlaying datasets, they sit next to each other). I'm wondering if anyone else has run into this problem and/or has any suggestions on how to solve it. For example, are there options I can set that will give me the desired behavior? Thanks for your time in this matter, Sincerely, Mike
