Hi David and Duncan,

Thanks for the reply. I am using R-2.4.0 for windows. All I am trying to do is follow an online tutorial (
http://www.onlamp.com/pub/a/onlamp/2005/11/17/r_for_statistics.html) step by step. spval is just an array of numbers. I also tried using type="1" instead of "l", but got same warning message and the same bar graph. Are there any packages that I should have installed? I haven't installed any contributed package, only the base distribution.

Thanks,

Tom
