proc gchart how to order based on two columns

Hi,

I have a proc gchart and I would like to order the data based on 2 columns instead of one.

 

PROC GCHART DATA=data_set;
format MyMetric 8.0;
HBAR MyDim / discrete maxis=axis1 raxis=axis2 nostats sumvar=MyMetric DESCENDING
coutline=black patternid=subgroup subgroup=fillcolor annotate=anno_dataset nolegend noframe width=.6 space=.6;
run;

 

right now i am displaying the data in descending order based on a MyMetric. but i would also like a second order in case of ties.

I ordered the data properly in  a data set. However it doesn't keep the order of the data set.

it uses the alphabetic order for the second order based on MyDim.

Re: proc gchart how to order based on two columns

Same trick as memtioned in your previous question.

Just adjust the order variable's value slightly to ensure the desired plot order.

 

 


data HAVE;
  MYDIM='A'; MYMETRIC=11; output;
  MYDIM='B'; MYMETRIC=10; output;
  MYDIM='C'; MYMETRIC=12; output;
  MYDIM='D'; MYMETRIC=12; output;
run;

data PLOT;
  set HAVE;
  if MYDIM='D' then  MYMETRIC + - 1e-9; 
run;      
 
proc gchart data=PLOT;
  hbar MYDIM / discrete nostats sumvar=MYMETRIC descending;
run;
