sas/graph proc GPLOT truncating some long string variables

I get that message when running my sas/graph
and some values get truncated :

NOTE: Value of IDVAR(ObjectName) truncated to 32 characters.


is there any way to fix that ?

Re: sas/graph proc GPLOT truncating some long string variables

Hi:
Per this note:
http://support.sas.com/kb/00/807.html
the max length for Axis values is 32 characters.

for more help with SAS/Graph questions, you should consider contacting Tech Support, as this is not really a Base Reporting procedure question (PRINT, REPORT, TABULATE) and is not related to ODS.

You can use an AXIS statement to override the limitation. For example:

goptions reset=all;
data test;
x='123456789012345678901234567890123456';
run;
proc gplot; plot x*x/vaxis=axis1;
axis1 value=('123456789012345678901234567890123456');
run;
