There are three ways to specify the size of the bar:
In this case, the values of the selected column are used to compute the error bars. if V is the value of the data point, and E the value of the errorbar column, the size of the bars will be V-E to V+E.
if E is the percentage selected, the size of the bars will be V(1-E/100) to V(1+E/100). It must be noticed that, in addition to the errorbars on the plot, this command will create a new column in the active table with can be used in the way as with the previous option. This column can be modified like any other one.
the standard deviation of the values. This has a meaning only of the data are centered around an average value. Like with the previous option, a new column will be created in the active table.
