Hello,

This is probably an exceedingly simple question, but how would one code multiple graphs into a single tab? I messed up and deleted a column that broke a tab full of 6 histograms, so I can no longer update it. Making Similar Graphs only crafts them individually. I would like them all to be together, but recreating from the Histogram function deletes all the reference lines I had to put in meticulously.

Reaching out to Minitab, the helpful person gave me this to work with:

mtitle "my output"

hist y

Histogram y;

AxLabel 2;

Bar;

Type 8;

Color 58;

Reference 1 0;

MODEL 1;

SubTitle;

StDist;

Footnote;

FPer;

Footnote;

FPanel;

Title "my response";

NoDTitle;

NoPerFootnote.

Endmtitle

However, while this works fine, trying to paste in my existing graphs where applicable only ends up with errors that I presume is because of the "hist y" field. Does anyone know what syntax is needed there? I'd like to have this able to run:

Histogram Pole;

Bar;

Reference 1 1.44;

MODEL 1;

Reference 1 1.34;

MODEL 1;

Reference 1 1.24;

MODEL 1;

SubTitle;

StDist;

Title "21 Size";

Footnote;

FPanel;

NoDTitle;

Histogram 'Off Eq';

Bar;

Reference 1 1.34;

MODEL 1;

Reference 1 1.24;

MODEL 1;

Reference 1 1.14;

MODEL 1;

SubTitle;

StDist;

Title "21 Off Size";

Footnote;

FPanel;

NoDTitle.

Any help would be appreciated, as I cannot find any resources to help me understand the programming language behind this. Thank you in advance

Edit:

turns out, even getting this to run correctly does not help me. Programming it in manually means that when data changes, Minitab does not have the "update" function that I need. Clearly, I'm asking for the impossible here.
