Much appreciated

Display them where? On an axis, value in bar, pie slice, point in scatter?

I am assuming that by "exponential" you mean appearing as scientific notation: 1.3E4 or similar. That appearance occurs when you either specify the scientific notation format such as E6. or you have a format like best6. and attempt to display a value much larger than 100000 where the format then picks 6 characters in E notation as the best fit for 6 spaces.

 

Please describe what type graph you are attempting, provide some example data and describe what you have attempted and what is not in the desired result.

Hi Ballardw

 

See below this is a bar chart in Enterprise Reporter.

The figures are in the hundreds of thousands

Re: SAS Non Exponential for enterprise guide for graph

You may be thinking the results are in hundreds of thousands but the values the graph is attempting to display approach 700,000,000,000. That could well be the result of SUMMING multiple 100,000 range values. I suspect that the current format for your variable is best7.

 

What values do you actually want to appear on the axis?
