Is there any proc in SAS that can create one bar and 2 lines in a graph. I tried proc gbarline but looks like it will only create a single bar and line combination.
Another question: I am trying to create a chart which is easy to create in excel but I am finding hard to create it in SAS.It's 2 bar and a line graph ( for e.g. I have 3 channels air, land ,sea and each channel has it's own averge,forcasted average, bench mark averge. I would like create 2 bars for each channel( own average,forcated avergae) and a line for the bench mark avergae. Is this possible with SAS grpah? I tried few options but didn't go anywhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I believe the available procedures "out of the box" will not produce what you need. However, anything you create with GPlot, GChart or any other SAS/Graph procedure can be extended with additional elements drawn with graphic annotation. The Procedure GAnno will do that for you.
You start by drawing your double bars, and then annotate the line over the bars to get the combination.
I can't give you any example without specific data and more time than I can devote to casually contributing here. However, if you get your two bars drawn and then spend some time reading and experimenting with the GAnno procedure documentation, I am sure you will get to a solution.
You might also search support.sas.com for GAnno and GChart and look for conference papers that might have examples to give you start-up pieces of code specific to your needs. Note that the online documentation for the procedures also includes extensive examples that you can copy and paste into a program and customise.
