Stacked boxplots in Minitab

I'm trying to prepare a stacked boxplot in minitab with two 5-number

Men's Salaries (408,520,589,846, 1040)
Women's Salaries (209, 312, 480, 650, 1060)

When I go to the boxplot menu and ask for the stacked boxplot option I
get the following error message:

MTB > BoxPlot 'Men';
SUBC> By 'Women'.
NOTE -- 1 observations with other subscripts.
* ERROR * Illegal value in subscript column

My "condensed student handbook" doesn't have this error message. Each
of the data columns will create a boxplot separately, but I can't seem
to stack them.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
