If you just want the title, look at ?mtext.

Subject: Re: [R] Labelling a secondary axis in R

Apologies for the private mail, Nabble has not yet updated the thread so I can write another post in it. I think I have confused things. I don't mean the labels are incorrect. They are fine. What I am referring to is a title for the secondary axis, which is currently entitled as "c(-100,200)". Obviously this isn't very useful.

I will put some reproducible code on the post when it updates.

Thanks,
Rob
