I am a new user for SAS ( installed SAS EG 7,1 in last 2 weeks ). And now trying to familriaze with the software.
However - I have been using JMP software for many years and current version I have is JMP 11. May I know is there any way that SAS EG can do the following: ( at least this is what I notice so far )
1) Variability chart of many levels...
2) Categorical analysis ( Share chart / Frequency chart / etc ..

Hi @azlanfaizal - welcome to the world of SAS!
JMP is a highly visual tool with many innovative visualization techniques built-in, available via point-and-click. SAS (and EG -- as an interface to SAS) can achieve some of these visualizations only by writing specific program code to prep the data and render the graphs.
I suggest that you begin with what's easily done in EG. Check out the Table Analysis task and One-Way Frequencies task, and also dig into the simple syntax for PROC FREQ. There are several built-in graphics that PROC FREQ can produce (freq charts, Mosiac plots) that are similar to your examples, but of course -- they are different.
For your variability chart you might look at the Summary Tables task (PROC TABULATE) -- but that's more about numbers than it is about visualizations. Also take a look through the many examples that @Sanjay_SAS offers on the Graphically Speaking blog. You might find something that comes close to what you're looking for with relatively simple SGPLOT code.
