Hello, I'm trying to plot a time series, with the units being years, using LineListPlot. The data are {year, value} pairs {{2001, 0.2},{2002, 0.1}...etc} For some reason when I try and export a GraphicsGrid, it squishes all the years onto the ticks. So the ticks look like one long string of numers. (200120020020042005). I tried to use DateListPlot, but apparently it needs whole dates and not years. It uses a wierd date format that would require writing a function that converts the format of my data to something like dataDateFormat = {{{2001,1,1}, 0.2},{{2002,1,1}, 0.1}...etc} (with a 10 years sample) which would be fine I suppose, but there's got to be some option or a better way? I'm puzzled why LineListPlot squishes the values into one long string when GraphicsGrid is used. Shouldn't it just skip values (which would actually be dandy)? The graphics grid consisted of 6 plots, it looks like: a1=ListLinePlot[data1]; b1=ListLinePlot[data2]; c1=ListLinePlot[data3]; a2=ListLinePlot[data4]; b2=ListLinePlot[data5]; c2=ListLinePlot[data6]; Transpose[{{a1,b1,c1},{a2,b2,c2}}] //GraphicsGrid Which results in the time-axis ticks looking like (200120022003200420005) Any idea a good way to fix this without converting to the DateListPlot date format? Thank you for any help.
