I'm trying to make a chart something like this:
http://www-users.york.ac.uk/~mb55/talks/upset3.gif
where it shows the mean and the standard deviation.
I don't need the scatter dots.

I can get a chart with the scatter dots in OO Calc, but i don't see how to do the mean and s.d.

Error bars are not a strength of OOo.
please see:
http://www.oooforum.org/forum/viewtopic.phtml?t=13113&highlight=error+bars
or search in the forum with the search engine:
http://www.oooforum.org/forum/search.phtml

You can try to use Gnumeric ( http://www.gnome.org/projects/gnumeric/ ). Maybe it's capable to make your plots.
I recommend for most scientific plots R ( http://www.r-project.org/ ) or Gnuplot ( http://www.gnuplot.info/ ). Not very handy but very powerful.

You might try some more heavy-duty statistics program like Fathom. Here's a link to an older version of Kyplot. You might check that out as well. I haven' the time just now.

I guess i didnt mention that I'm on linux, so that eliminates a couple suggestions.
I've already tried Gnumerics...it has some problems.

Try R ( http://www.r-project.org/ ) and gnuplot ( http://www.gnuplot.info/ ). Both run also on Linux.
Look at: http://www.csse.uwa.edu.au/programming/gnuplot_demos/errorbar/errorbar5.gif
This is an example for gnuplot. There are error bars for x (and y, I am aware that your plot is not a xy-plot). I think this is what you are looking for. I wouldn't be surprised if your example was also created with gnuplot (or R). Wink

The "error bars in charts" feature 366 (134 votes) is implemented for OOo 3.0 and is ready for testing now. Please try to break it and report any bugs.

This is an old post, so this reply is partially "for the record' (such as people searching the archives).
