If I understand you correctly, you have the five number summary (min,
q1, median/mean, q3, max).
Have a look at the function bxp() where you can supply the summary
values as a list.

Subject: [R] Box Plot Question

I would like to create 15 box plots from two sets of data.

Set1 - containts PayGrade, Min_Salary, Max_Salary data for 15 pay
grades Set2 - contains PayGrade, Actual_Min, Actual_Max, and Actual_Mean
for the 15 pay grades

I would like 15 box plots (one for each paygrade) whose whiskers were
the Min_Salary and Max_Salary data and whose 'box' was Actual_Min,
Actual_Mean, Actual_Max

in order to show -- for each of teh 15 grades -- the width of the
'theoretical' pay grade, and the distribution of actual salaries within
each of the 15 grades.

Any suggestions?

Thank you for any help.
