Indeed, changing it to column=d/100 works as well. column and row should 
be < 9999, otherwise it crashes. Not a real problem ofcourse.

I knew the numbers are weights, that's why I didn't bother to scale them
and just used the numbers I already have available.

    I've been down so long, if I'd cheer up, I'd still be depressed.
