sas >> SAS Graph - Odd Axis Labels problems

by anindya.lugbang » Tue, 29 Jul 2008 14:27:22 GMT

I am using a PROC GPLOT to generate a bar-line chart in a report.
The x-axis comprises SAS dates - data points for 13 months. I want the
months to appear in the label on a quarterly basis, and am specifying
the appropriate interval in the AXIS statement. Strangely, the code
prints the quarterly axes labels correctly for one month while in the
next month it prints it at every half year.
I did a diff on the two versions of the code for each month, and
both of them are the same. Is anybody aware of any reason why this may
happen? Thanks in advance.


Code -

(In the first instance which works, t12m_start gets resolved to MAR07
and reporting month to MAR08 while in the second case it gets resolved
to APR07 and APR08 respectively)

axis1 label=none offset=(0,2) order=(0 to 0.2 by .04)
major=(h=-1) minor=none value=(h=4);
axis2 label=none offset=(0,2) order=(0 to 0.16 by .04) major=none
minor=none value=none
axis3 label=none offset=(5,5) order=("&t12m_start"d to
"&reporting_month"d by quarter)
value=(color=black height=5 angle=55 rotate=0)
major=(width=3) minor=none length=80pct;

symbol1 interpol=needle value=none width=20 color=&firstbarclr;
symbol2 interpol=spline value=none width=2 height=1 ;
symbol3 interpol=spline value=none width=2 height=1 ;
symbol4 interpol=spline value=none width=2 height=1 ;

legend1 label=none shape=symbol(4,2) value=(h=4 'Loss' 'Costs' 'Revenue')
/*position=(bottom center outside)*/ origin=(30pct,);

Hi, Sas-L,

I got the follwoing warning message in the log window after run the proc

WARNING: The values of countyGP have been truncated to 32 characters.

the varaible countygp has four levels. I assoicated an user-defined format
with it.

the code is here:

axis2 offset=(1in) split=","
      label=( F=SWISSxb H=1.3  c=black "RESIDENCE")
        value=(h=0.8 F=SWISSxb );
proc gchart data=tumor gout=d1.page7;
 vbar pt_countygp/discrete raxis=axis1 MAXIS=AXIS2 annotate=labels
              midpoints=1 2 3 4 patternid=midpoint
              NOframe type=pct  WIDTH=6 SPAce=6
               format countygp ctyfmt.;

I tried several things like changing offset ,decreasing the font size,
increasing the group space, etc with no luck.

inceIs there any way I can display the whole thing on the axis without

Thanks in advance!

6. SAS GRAPHS - 2 horizontal axis

I'd like to draw 2 graphs that overlay , an I want each to have his
own scale ( that means I'll have the first graph (NOX) in red - in one
scale- its axis will be on the left , and the other one (O3)- in black
in a different scale its axis will be on the right.I'd like to have
something like :
axis3 order = (0 to 100 by 5)- that will be horizontal as well.

my syntax so for was :

title "Daily Mean  of O3 [ppb] Vs NOX [ppb] &name. station (&stat.)";
/*O3*/symbol1 i=j v=dot c=black h=0.08 cm w=0.5;
/*NOX*/symbol2 i=j v=dot c=red   h=0.08 cm w=0.5;
axis1 order=('1Jan2000'd to '1Jan2005'd by year)
      label=(f=swiss h=0.5 cm  'date') minor=none;
axis2 order = (0 to 350 by 10);

proc gplot data=data.memuza_yomi;
plot O3_mean*date NOX_mean*date  /overlay vaxis = axis2 haxis=axis1
where stat_id=&stat.;
run; quit;

Thanks in advance,

8. SAS/GRAPH: legend on PROC GPLOT truncates label

Is there any way to tell SAS to increase the length at which to truncate
labels on the legend in PROC GPLOT?  I would like to keep my labels
intact, and there is plenty of room in the legend area, but SAS is
truncating it.  I cannot seem to find anything in the documentation for
the 'legend' statement (it talks of heights) and a search on sas-l for
'legend' and 'truncate' yields one thread that doesn't have the answer.
Any help is appreciated,
