Bar/column plots represent simple sequences of values (one case is represented by one bar/column).

If more than one variable is selected, then either multivariate clusters of bars/columns are plotted (one cluster per case) or each variable is represented in a separate graph, depending on whether a multiple or regular graph is chosen. To produce column, bar, or box plots with error (or range) bars, use either Range Plots or Box Plots. Note that you can specify either a vertical or horizontal orientation for the bars.
