Hi folks,

 

I am using proc sgplot to plot two time-series trends and I want to get rid of axis labels because it displays whatever name I have for 'y=......' for the first time-series as y-axis label.

 

Can someone shed some light on this please?

 

thanks

S

Here you go. In this example, the first series I have has y=comparator so it will pick 'comparator' as y-axis label. while I want to label the y-axis as 'percentage'.
