Solution

Sorry, you need another closed parentheses in the X variable line (I neglected to put it there in the code that I pasted):

X**(** Transform Column**(** "My X/1000", Formula**(** :Line 160 Cases / **1000** **)** **)** **)**,

I do not understand what you are saying when you say that you want to divide your X variable? Group it in the graph, divide it by some number, split the data into separate subsets?????

Jim, I want to divide each X value by 1000 before plotting. I don't want to create another column and the current X column is being used in formulas for other columns already, so I don't want to have to edit all those formulas.

Thankls!

Y**(** :Line 160 Broke **)**,

No luck: I get an error message: **Unexpected end of input. Perhaps there is a missing "," or ")". Trying to parse arguments of function "Graph Builder". Line 21 Column2:)**

I typed the code exactly as you have it. I even copied and pasted, but no luck.
