I am afraid I will not download and unpack files - security risk.  Show some test data in the form of a datastep:

Then show what you want out of it and what you have tried.


As for graphs, yes, most things are possible.  Check out this excellent blog which has examples with code for many types of graphs:

I went ahead and "took one for the team", and took the risk of downloading and extracting the zip file 🙂

Below is the 3d ribbon chart that was in the zip.


My advice would be - hopefully you can convince them that such a 3d ribbon chart is not a great way to visualize data. (If you could post some details about the kind of data you have available, and they types of questions you'd like the graph to answer, perhaps the community here can recommend some better alternatives!)

I agree with Robert's comment.  Not only are the different plots hard to compare, the usage of the space is very inefficient.  Please see this "Spider" plot of change from baseline.  Your data can be displayed as a 2D grouped series plot for easier understanding. 




The use of the special characters was done to simulate user graph, and to show how to do this.  However, it is not necessary, and direct labeling of the plots would be easier to understand.  Also, that would be just a few lines of code.

Some of you may know that I am retiring from SAS effective Jan 01, 2019.  My hope is to continue contributing to this community and also continue writing blog articles on data visualization.  Here is my first article, related to this thread.


It is a work in progress.  I am still trying to figure out this new medium and tools.
