    I asked Minitab directly a couple years ago and there isn’t a direct way to do it.  You have to tile the two different graphs.  You can then position them next to each other. 
    Good luck.

    It takes a bit of work, but marginal plots using the histogram option
    can display what you want.

    No you can’t.  Only marginal plot in Minitab is for an X-Y dot plot, no control chart available.

    I don’t know and too lazy to try, but the Minitab people troll the forum and if someone say something too stupid they will usually step in and correct.

    Ps. It works better if you add “Minitab” in the title/

    Sorry, but you are incorrect. You actually have to do some work, but I can display what the original
    poster asked for. It took about four minutes.

    Hi Jason
    Create your histogram using the Transpose X and Y option to give a vertical measurement axis.  The use the Layout tool (one Row and two Columns) to place the histogram and your control chart side by side in a single chart.  Scaling on your measurement axes has to be adjusted to match.  It would only make sense to do this if your control chart was one for INDIVIDUAL measurements AND it gave no signals providing evidence of special cause variation.

    Are you suggesting that coconuts migrate?

    If you are using the Bower Chiel approach, then I would stand by my original post.  This is doing 2 different graphs, then pasting them side-by-side.  The request is to add a histogram to a control chart.  If you have another method to do this direct, please elaborate as it would be helpful.
    Got a tool where I’m currently working called Quality Suites which does this directly.  Very useful.

    Jason,Nothing in life is for free. If you really have a need to show both
    sets of information on one graph, you can get there with a little
    work using what I’ve said. It took me four minutes and I had never
    done it before.Yes MBB, there is nothing there called control charts, but I know
    how to display the same information and I know the location of the
    lines. The histogram is there if I choose the right options. MBB, you may want to read what people have written, you appear
    to read what you want to see.
