    Hi Gary,

    I don't think you can get rid of the warning message, but if you set
    the trYMinF and trYMaxF resources to the limits that you want the Y
    axis to have, then you should see your constant line. So, for
    example, if your constant line is at Y=100., then you could set
    trYMinF to something < 100, like 95, and trYMaxF to something > 100,
    like 105.

    Using a GSUN interface, it would look something like:

        res@trYMinF = 95.
        res@trYMaxF = 105.

        xy = gsn_xy(wks,...,res)

    Using straight NCL:

        xy = create "xyplot" xyPlotClass wks
          "trYMinF" : 95.
          "trYMaxF" : 105.
        end create
