axis of the graph

Hi there,
I am using gbarline to draw some graphs.
I want the X axis of the bar chart to get all the possible values of the discrete character variable but in that specific order in the datasets. How can I do that?

Thank you so much. Appreciate it.

I think you need to be a little more specific in your question. Your statement about the order in the data sets suggests you might want something like O R D E B Y. I suspect that the axis declarations don't allow sequencing other than collating sequence or reverse collating sequence.

I will look at that, and see whether it can be done. Meantime, please provide an example of the order required.

Kind regards

This may call for some exquisite SAS trickery!

Some possibilities include adding a new variable that allows explicit ordering and then:

Applying a format to that variable to get the appropriate label on the chart or, using an axis statement with tick mark labels e.g. value=(t=1 'ValueName1' t=2 'ValueName2') etc.
