Hello,

 

I am trying to create a boxplot/barchart but I have received " GROUP= option is not used when the number of groups exceeds the maximum." after putting the following code.

Background: The boxplot/barchart  that I am creating is with time in the x-axis (should be six bar charts) and the y-axis showing the proportion of the a categorical variable with 5 levels. But then from the second bar chart onwards, they would be teased out further depending on the categories of the previous bar chart.

 

 

ods listing close;
ods rtf file='xx.rtf' style=newchart ;
proc sgrender data=allfalls4 template=blockplot2  ;
format fallstat survey. ;
run;
ods rtf close;
ods listing;

Before entering the above codes, I have been using PROC Template and those code in the "PROC TEMPLATE " should be correct as I have also been using those codes to create other graphs that I want. But those datasets are with less number of 'groups'.

So my best estimation about the error of creating this code is because my current dataset is with more 'groups' (over 1000) and the code that I have been using didn't cope.  I tried to search online and one of the possible ways is to use "GROUPMAX" option but I am not sure how /where I should add them in.

 

 

So I wonder if I could be directed about the feasibility of putting "groupmax" either to "ods listing close;" or "Proc template" in order to create such graph? Or if there are anything else to correct this?


Thank you!

The GROUPMAX option is set on the ODS Graphics statement. Just specify the option sometime before you run PROC SGRENDER:

 

ods graphics / groupmax=2000;  /* For example */

Hi @VKWS,

is this really a visual analytics question?

Or wouldn't it better fit under Graphics Programming - SAS Support Communities or ODS and Base Reporting - SAS Support Communities?

Best Markus
