I previously posted this question on the Procedures forum, but I think maybe it actually belongs here since this is being done in EG.
Is it possible in PROC GPLOT to plot dates along the x-axis as categorical variables instead of time-series?
My problem is that if I have 10 datapoints total that are being plotted and 6 points are in january '06 and my next 4 datapoints are in November '08 I'm getting a long straight line from the last datapoint in January until my first data point in November. I would like for this to plot the 10 points equidistant from each other instead of putting the time gap in between them.
If I use the bar-line chart and specify to use "one bar for each unique data value" it will plot like mentioned above, but I need to be able to plot multiple lines like this. I've got to believe this is possible in SAS, maybe here I would need to convert the dates to text???
