The "all" in the data disappears in my picture. How to solve it?

Moreover, can I set y label horizontal?

Thanks.

Often special displays for values can be solved with a custom format. Please see:

 

Data picture;
input company_amount 	ticker_symbols	company_names;
datalines;
999	0.2614	0.0706
800	0.264	0.8708
700	0.3303	0.009
600	0.2877	0.0149
500	0.4826	0.0099
400	0.7355	0.0092
300	0.68	0.0045
200	0.6754	0.002
100	0.0444	0.0046
;
proc format library=work;
value myall
999 = 'All'
;
run;
proc sgplot data=picture;
     title "P-value Trends";
     SERIES X = company_amount Y = ticker_symbols/datalabel  LEGENDLABEL = "Ticker Symbols" MARKERS LINEATTRS = (THICKNESS = 2)  markerattrs=(symbol=circlefilled);
     SERIES X = company_amount Y = company_names/datalabel LEGENDLABEL = "Company Names" MARKERS LINEATTRS = (THICKNESS = 2  pattern=dashdashdot)  markerattrs=(symbol=squarefilled);
     XAXIS TYPE = DISCRETE;
     xaxis label='Company Amount' reverse;

     yaxis label='P-value' labelpos=Top;
     REFLINE 0.05 0.01 0.001 / TRANSPARENCY = 0.5;
     format company_amount myall.;
RUN; 

Also notice the use of the labelpos option to move the y-axis label.

This:

Data picture;
input company_amount 	ticker_symbols	company_names;
datalines;
All 	0.2614	0.0706
800	0.264	0.8708

Is invalid, ALL is not numeric, so you cannot read it in with a numeric read of company amount.  Change the input to:
input company_amount $ ticker_symbols company_names;

 

Then your company amount data will be character and able to hold ALL.  Also the graph should then treat them all as character.

However, " XAXIS reverse;" becomes invalidated. I want to arrange the x array from all to 100. 

Moreover, I want to change the label in y array. How to revise it? Thanks.

For you X-Axis question, simplest method is to read them in as numeric, and put all as 0, so you have the values:

0

100

200

...

800

 

Then apply a format to the numeric data:

proc format;
  value tmpfmt
    0='ALL';
run;

data have;
  set have;
  format thevalue tmpfmt.;
run;

This will then sort the x-axis data as numeric, so all would be first, but display using the formatted value.

With regards to your y-axis question, I don't know, never seen a graph with axis label at end.  If I was trying to do this I would just plot one scatter plot point 0,0.9 and label it with the text you want.  However you may find more information at this site:

It is the best reference on graphing.
