# Multiple Line Plots

Hello SAS/Graph Community,

Considering this data structure:

HorizontalAxisVariableVerticalAxisVariable1VerticalAxisVariable2VerticalAxisVAriable3
Tens51020
TensA102040
TensB153080
TensC2040160

Will Multiple Line Plots By Group Column be useful to graph out this sort of dataset?

Or if there is some other better way to plot it, please share your thoughts.

Thanks,

Hi.

You could do this:

symbol i = join;

proc gplot data = in;

plot (yaxis1 yaxis2 yaxis3)*  xaxis/overlay;

run;quit;

or this:

proc template;

define statgraph sgdesign;

begingraph / designwidth=1241 designheight=690;

layout lattice / rowdatarange=data columndatarange=data rowgutter=10 columngutter=10;

layout overlay;

barchart x=XAXIS y=YAXIS1 / name='bar' barwidth=0.2 discreteoffset=-0.29 groupdisplay=Cluster clusterwidth=1.0 fillattrs=(color=CXDEB68C );

barchart x=XAXIS y=YAXIS2 / name='bar2' barwidth=0.16 discreteoffset=-0.1 groupdisplay=Cluster clusterwidth=1.0;

barchart x=XAXIS y=YAXIS3 / name='bar3' datatransparency=0.4 barwidth=0.16 discreteoffset=0.08 groupdisplay=Cluster clusterwidth=1.0 fillattrs=(color=CXC6C3C6 );

endlayout;

endlayout;

endgraph;

end;

run;

proc sgrender data=WORK.IN template=sgdesign;

run;

Depends I guess on what are you trying to display, yes?

That is it. You nailed it for me.

The transparency and groupdisplay options in barchart look very inviting worth switching my gears from line to bar chart. Once again thanks for your input.
