Histograms allow you to graphically summarize continuous data. The histogram is one of the templates found in the Plot Builder.
To begin, open the Plot Builder by choosing Plot Builder from the Plots menu on the menu bar of the Console window. The following window will appear.
Then, click the Histogram button in the templates pane, or choose Histogram from the Select Plot Type area in the center of the Plot Builder window. The following window will appear.
Choose the desired file from the pull down menu. Add the variable from which to create the histogram by selecting it and clicking on the right arrow.
To add color, double click on histogram in the Components pane. The menu will appear to the right. Choose count in the Colour By space. (Alternatively, color could have been added in the original histogram pop up window.)
