I am using SAS 9.4 and I've created a cluster grouped VBAR (2 types in the group). Below the VBAR I've add 4 vlines. I am trying to add tick lines in the bottom x axis to visually segregate the data below the chart aligning with the vbars above. I've attached a pic and I show (in blue) lines I'd like to add. Of course, I'd like straight lines not my messy illustration.

With SAS 9.4M3, you can do a graph like this with fewer lines of code.  Note use of color bands to separate the columns.  AxisTable does not have options to draw the column borders.  VBARBASIC is used if the color bands are to be hidden using the BAND.  Else you can just use VBAR.

Please share your code and (some) data so it is easier to provide a solution.

I added the code. Thank you

This example

shows one way of adding a table of other values below an axis that aligns with the ticks.

I thought using Vline with VBar there may be a simple solution I am missing. Thank you for your help.

Unfortunately, you did not attach any data.  So it is not possible to run your code.

 

With SAS 9.4, you can use the XAXISTABLE to display the tabular data.  Is there a reason you are not using it?

Here are some examples:

GROUPDISPLAY=CLUSTER can now be used with the XAXISTABLE.
