Does anyone know how to assign specific colors to specific bars/legend groups in SGPLOT? For example in my figure, I used: datacolors=(white black grey);

 

and thus the first bar ("one") was depicted as white, group "two" was depicted as black and "three" as grey. This would be fine, however, because I am creating many graphs, it becomes tedious and time consuming to reorder the colors in the datacolors statement if it so happens that the first occurrence in my data is group "two" (i.e. group "two" would be colored white, which would be inconsistent with my previous graphs).   

 

I am assuming there is a way to assign the colors like: 

"one"=white, 

"two"=black,

"three"=grey 

 

but I am unfamiliar with how to do so. I'm using SAS v9.4. 

 

Thanks!

Use a data attribute map. 

 

There's an example here:
