APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • You have created a histogram of a single scale level variable.
    You want to edit the graph and change the colors of individual
    bars in the histogram.  The user interface allows you to select
    the bars individually, however your color changes do not take
    affect.
    

Local fix

  • One workaround is to use the Transform -> Visual Binning menus
    to create a binned categorical variable.  Then create a stacked
    histogram using your original scale level variable as the x-axis
    with the new binned categorical variable as the colored stacks.
