@Carl Love I would like to thank you for your immediate response, unfortunately, it didn't work. By fiddling around, I came to a solution which solved the problem, sort of.
Here is what I have, x:=[1992,1994,1996,1998,2000,2002,2004]
I changed from having two vectors to having two lists, easier to work with, and so the suggested solution became,
Statistics[ColumnGraph](y,x), by the way I also tried it with the vectors and typed in the command just as you have suggested and I got the error message as follows:
Error,(in Statistics[ColumnGraph] unexpected option: datasetlabels = [1992,1994,......]. I got the same response inserting x which is in list format.
Then I tried this command:
ColumnGraph['interactive'](y), that brought up the interactive window and all I had to do is type in the list of x into the box labeled captions, it wouldn't accept the variable x. This interactive app does'nt give you the option to have just the command printet out.
Usually no problem, except if you execute the worksheet sometimes later, you wind up having to type in the list of years again. If you happen to come up with a command that will print the column graph with one command line, I would be very grateful. Again, thank you so much, I really appreciate your effort, respectfully,
