# Re: [R] Numbers as Points in Graphs

I am finding this a little hard to explain. The code you gave me produced all 0.0 points whereas what I am looking for are the points to correspond to a specific column. I'll be explicit. I am graphing the location of 15 objects numbered 1 to 15.

plot(Length ~ Width, data=infiltration1, col="blue", xlab = "Width (cm)", ylab = "Length (m)", xlim=c(0,200), ylim=c(0,30))

Now I would like the points on this graph, rather than dots to be numbers corresponding to the object it represents. Is there any way to "access" the object number from my data to use as in lieu of points?

Thanks again.
