DATALABEL support for bar charts was not added until 9.2 phase 2. Do you have 9.2 phase 1 or phase 2?

As a workaround, you could use GTL with a bar/scatter overlay. The code below will produce a bar chart like you would see from SGPLOT with the labels added:

proc template;
define statgraph barlabel;
begingraph;
layout overlay;
barchartparm x=age y=height;
scatterplot x=age y=eval(height+5) / markercharacter=height;
endlayout;
endgraph;
end;
run;

proc summary data=sashelp.class noprint nway;
class age;
var height;
output out=barsum sum=;
run;

proc sgrender data=barsum template=barlabel; run;

Hi Dan,
My SAS version is : SAS 9.2 TS Level2MO. The workaround worked.

I appreciate all your help.

TS2 is phase 2, so DATALABEL on the bar chart should be available to you. Does the following code run for you?

proc sgplot data=sashelp.class;
vbar age / response=height stat=mean datalabel;
run;
