SGPLOT

``````data sampled;

proc sgplot data=SAMPLED;
title 'Study Results by Subject';
series x=time y=IPRED / group=TRTgrp grouplc=TRTGRP name='grouping';
keylegend 'grouping' / type=linecolor;

run;``````

The graph has a line at the bottom connecting the 0 and 10 hr time point for subject 1.  Can someone tell me why and how to get rid of the line?

Are you sure you meant to use TRTgrp as the group variable? Since all of your records are from the same TRTGrp then that is what happens when the x values start over again for subject 2. See if using GROUP=SUBJECT creates the desired appearance.

Re: SGPLOT

Yes, that resolved the issue.  My follow-up question is that the final data set will have separate treatment groups.

Therefore if I correctly interpret the expected result when I have more than one group would be to at that time have group=trtgrp and then it should plot ok?

I think that you likely will want to insert a record at the end of each treatment subject combination with a missing Y value and use the BREAK option on the series statement to prevent the connection from last subject to next. Obviously the data below for trtgrp 2 is made up by me and has no actual relationship to your values. With my example data the appearance is actually the same for Group=trtgrp or Group=subject.

I would also suggest a label for your legend.

```data sampled;
infile datalines truncover;
input trtgrp subject time  ipred ;
datalines;
1 1 0 0
1 1 0.4 7
1 1 0.7 11
1 1 1 15
1 1 2 20
1 1 3 23

Re: SGPLOT

Thanks for the update and I will use your suggestion for my final plot.
