The answer always depends on the SAS release you are using. Please include program and sample data so we can run the use case. In the graph above, YEAR is a group role, so values for 2000 and 2001 are plotted as side by side clusters. They do not have specific axis values.
Your best bet is to plot a graph using SGPANEL, with PANELBY=item01. Then, each panel can have a SERIES x=year y=amount. You can use other options to move the header values down to look like axis values, and suppress cell borders, etc.
Potentially, if you have SAS9.40M1, you could define data for a POLYGON plot using discreteoffset=column to draw lines between each group value, but that may be more laborious, but better than SGAnnotate.
