How can i get the bar value in the distance graph in hierarchical clustering?

Hello, i'm doing an Hierarchical Clustering and under my dendrogram there is a distance graph. I'm interested in knowing the value of the bar at the end of that graph, on the right side. Can someone tell me how can i get it?

Thank you

Re: How can i get the bar value in the distance graph in hierarchical clustering?

I see what you're looking for now.

There's a small diamond-shaped handle at the top and bottom of the dendrogram. By dragging that handle you identify a given number of clusters. The vertical line in the scree plot shows where the point for the selected number of clusters.

The distance for that point would be is in the Clustering History table below the scree plot.

You can see it a bit better if you drag to make the scree plot bigger. Here's a small movie showing the interaction.

I'm not sure exactly what you're looking for but I the Clustering History just below the scree plot has the distances used in the scree plot.

I was looking for the specific distance value indicated by the vertical bar in the graph.
