A very reasonable request! Sorry for not doing this initially, but please find below the data I am trying to plot:

> total_sums
           sums86   sums87   sums88   sums89   sums90   sums91   sums92
Sim_1986 17722203 16875889 18626582 18428415 17611182 17290016 16819289
X1986    15276602 14086272 15387747 15560882 14905453 14939493 13979001
           sums93   sums94   sums95
Sim_1986 17657959 17803561 18016143
X1986    14814672 15003711 14464427

This is the command I've successfully managed to execute:

> barplot(total_sums, beside=TRUE, col=(2:3), las=2)

...however, I'm running into problems when trying to change the default x-axis tick marks from sumsXX to 1986:1995. I'm also trying to change the format of the y-axis values as mentioned in my previous post.

Many thanks again,
