[R] plot several histograms with same y-axes scaling using hist()

Dear all

Problem: hist()-function, scale = “percent”

I want to generate histograms for changing underlying data. In order to make them comparable, I want to fix the y-axis (vertical-axis) to, e.g., 0%, 10%, 20%, 30% as well as to fix the spaces, too. So the y-axis in each histogram should be identical. Currently, I have 100 histograms and the y-axis scales changes in each.

Here is my code:

="Hist(na.exclude("&AA3&"), breaks=50, col=""seashell3"", scale=""percent"",xlim=c(-1, 1), xlab=""Bewertungsfehler"", ylab=""Haeufigkeit (in %)"", main=""KBV"", border=""white"")"

I tried the ylim=c(…), but unfortunately it does not work.

Thanks for your help in advance!
