ODS layout - 2 graphs side by side

Hi,

I am using ODS layout to put 3 graphs (on a single page) in PDF format in a way that I want my Graph 1 (main graph) to be on the top of the page and then Graph 2 and Graph 3 Side by side just below Graph 1, something like this:

         GRAPH_1

GRAPH_2   GRAPH_3

following code is putting all of the graphs on top of each other, something like this

GRAPH_1

GRAPH_2 

GRAPH_3

Please advice how to fix it, here is the code:

goptions reset=all htext=1.0 htitle=1;

OPTIONS NODATE NOCENTER number orientation=portrait leftmargin=0.1 rightmargin=0.1 FONT=ARIAL;

ODS PDF FILE="\\Server_name\using Grid.pdf";

ODS layout start colums=2;

 

ODS region height=4in column_span=2;

/*graph 1*/

Re: ODS layout - 2 graphs side by side

Hi,

one way that would work nicely would be to use PROC GREPLAY.

First, for each of your graphs (graph 1, graph2, graph3) you will need to assign a name to them. You can do that by simply adding the

name = "graph1" option for each of your graphs.(please make sure to name them differently, such as graph1, graph2 and graph3).

You also need to modify the size of your window by using

goptions hsize = 6in vsize = 6in (for each of your three graphs)

Once that is accomplished, you can then use the GREPLAY procedure (please note the change in window size, again)

goptions reset = all;

options orientation = landscape;

ods pdf file = "&your_path.\test.pdf";

goptions device = pdf rotate = landscape gsfmode = replace

       hsize = 12in vsize = 12in;

proc greplay igout = work.gseg

  tc = sashelp.templt template = u1d2s

    nofs nobyline ;

    treplay 1:graph1 2:graph2 3:graph3;

run;quit;

ods pdf close;

I hope this helps.

Best of luck!
