Required help to convert the below SAS codes into macros.


a) proc gchart data=HTWT; vbar gender/sumvar=weight; Title "Average weight by Gender";
run;
b) proc plot data=HTWT; Title "Scatter plot"; plot &height*&weight;
run;
(Hint: Define two different macros.)

Re: SAS macro to import different type of file

@pallab You should use PROC SGPLOT not GCHART or PLOT these days. The graphics quality is much better.
