Hello,

Is there an option in proc gchart (Hbar) to label data values inside the bars (without using annotate)?

I have attached an example of the required output.

Thanks.

VD - I don't think it's possible right now in gchart hbar, without using annotate.

There's an open R&D request in to consider adding this feature, and I've added a link to this thread so the developers will know there is customer interest in this capability.

With SAS9.3 release, you can do this using the SGPLOT procedure by overlaying a scatter plot with MarkerChar option on a VBarParm statement.  You would need to compute where to place the label since the bar is stacked, so it is similar to annotate.  For prior release, you will have to use annotate.

Thank you for your replies. Annotate it is then!

Not to worry - using annotate is not that difficult!  Smiley Happy

Here's a bit of sample code to get you started...

data my_anno; set sashelp.class;
xsys='2'; ysys='2'; when='a';
midpoint=sex; subgroup=name;
function='label'; position='4'; text=name;
run;

proc gchart data=sashelp.class anno=my_anno;
hbar sex / type=sum sumvar=weight nostats
subgroup=name nolegend;
run;
