I try to use "pointlabel" statement to point out ID # of all the outliner, but the problem is it will also list all the ID # of other non-outliner. Is there any conditional statement to control this? Thanks!

I want the scatter plot as below, outliner with ID #, non-outliner with a 'star' only.

You could create an extra variable in your data, and only populate that variable with a value for the markers you want to have text, and then specify that variable as the one for pointlabel to use.

Thanks for your reply,

I created a new variable for those outliner (marker=ID), and (marker='missing'), for those non-outliner. but when I use pointlabel again (pointlabel=('#marker'), yes, all Outliner are now with 'ID #', but non-outliner are now with a 'dot'.

pointlabel will still point out those missing values? how to remove these 'dot's ?

Thanks

Is this variable numeric? Try it with a character variable, and rather than the sas-numeric 'missing' (which shows up as a dot) make the character variable have the value of blank.

Thanks, changed to char, and now no 'dot's thanks!
