Hi SAS Community,

 

I'm using SAS EG, sgplot statement to do some charts. One problem I have is that the gridlines are too dispersedly distributed. Does anyone know how to make gridlines denser? I've tried setting specifically value = (1 to 100 by 10), but the problem is that I want it be more flexible so I don't need to manually input the minimum 1 and maximum 100.

 

Any ideas or directions is greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks!

GRID lines are tied to major tick marks, but MINORGRID lines are tied to minor ticks. One idea to try is the following:

 

1. Remove the REFLINE statement your're using now.

2. Add the GRID, MINOR, and MINORGRID option to your XAXIS or YAXIS statement

 

Post back and let us know if that gets you closer to what you want.

 

Thanks!
Dan

Thank you so much Dan! What you told me is very difficult for me to find out by myself. That's exactly what I'm looking for....

HI Dan, a follow up question is that, do you know how to make the values associated with each minor tick to show?
now I have enough grid lines 🙂 but I want the values to show as well so the graph will be more informative. I searched online but didn't find anything. not even in the SAS docuementation. Any idea is appreciated greatly. Thanks!
