    I have collected heaps of data on a project I am working on, and plotted various main effects plots.  They are particularly busy and I cannot see which plotted data point corresponds to which model type.  I know there is a way to click on the data point on the chart and it will give you details of that particular point.
     
    Any help would be greatly welcomed.

    Hi Faisal,
    Sorry about that, I am using minitab.  I have drawn up a number of main effects plots, but cannot remember how to get the data from an idividual point plotted on the chart.

    Use the Brush Option in Minitab, it should be shown as an Icon in the Menu Bar, and then highlight the data points on the graph, on the top left corner you will see the row numbers also the rows in the worksheet will have a black dot against them

    Thanks RB,  I can see the brush icon.  However when the chart is active I cannot use the brush facility.  I’m not sure why, and I can’t believe how basic this problem is. The only thing I can see is I am using version 13.1 and not 14, but I cannot see why this would be an issue, do you?

    You cannot brush computed values, only raw data.  If the point you are trying to brush is an average or some other calculated value the brush function will not activate.  Check that out.

    Yes that is the problem, they are calculated values.  The multi vary is telling me model type on x axis and percentage of repairs on the y axis. There are more data plots against the x axis than there are labels, all I need to know is the model type of each data plot.  Is there any other way of doing that?

    I have found the way to do it.  Choose Stat > Basic Statistics > Store Descriptive Stats.  In variable I entered the repair type, and in By Variables the Model.  Then minitab just stores the info in the next available columns, which then correspond to the data points plotted.
