Hi, basically, i am having problems with getting the correct value on the frequency function with creating historgrams. for each cell, i get zero? i dont think this should happen, since i should at least get a value in some cells. here is an outline. i have around 1000 data values, but i did bother providing it all.

<table width="1094" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0"><col style="width: 96pt;" width="128"> <col style="width: 120pt;" width="160"> <col style="width: 69pt;" width="92"> <col style="width: 170pt;" width="226"> <col style="width: 270pt;" width="360"> <col style="width: 96pt;" width="128"> <tbody><tr style="height: 15pt;" height="20"> <td style="height: 15pt; width: 96pt;" width="128" height="20">
