Suggest you share what SAS code you are using for useful feedback.

Re: haxis

I have tried the following code with no luck.

axis1 order=('11jan10'd to 01feb10'd by day);

Can anyone explain what I am missing ? Thanks

Re: haxis

Did you have an opportunity to use the Recommended Google search to reveal SAS-hosted DOC and other technical reference material that may help?

Also, given your response "...with no luck." -- can you be more specific about the SAS behavior when you use the code shared? Possibly share the exact SAS log output (pasted in a post/reply to the forum)? However, from the code you did share, I see a missing tick-mark in your second date literal value.

I solved this by changing the date field on my access database to 01/11, 01/12, 01/13, etc. and the results returned the correct date order I was looking for. Thanks for your replies.
