Good catch. Works perfectly! Just what I needed. :-)

To use subfloats in memoir you need to declare them with \newsubfloat 
{<floatname>}.  (Plus, your code has a few other unrelated errors: a  
stray \end{verbatim} command and a missing brace in the caption line.)

Here's a fixed version that works.  -Alan


\subcaption{Bar chart.}
\subcaption{Bar chart.}
\caption{my caption\label{fig:BarAndLinePlot}}
