# Band from 100 to 150

Hello,

I am creating a plot and there a request to show a band from 100 to 150 to show reference values.

The y-axis has values ranging from 0 to 250 and x-axis is weeks. What is the best way to show a band

using proc template ? I am using SAS 9.4M2

## Re: Band from 100 to 150

The GTL supports the BANDPLOT statement. Thus you could write:

``````proc template;
define statgraph bandplot;
begingraph;
layout overlay;
bandplot x=height limitlower=100 limitupper=150 /
name="band"
legendlabel="Overweight";
scatterplot x=height y=weight / primary=true;
discretelegend "band";
endlayout;
endgraph;
end;
run;

proc sgrender data=sashelp.class template=bandplot;
run;``````

However, you might consider using a BLOCKPLOT statement instead. See the example in the article "Overlay categories on a histogram."

It helps to show what you are starting from.

Likely you will be looking at a REFERENCELINE statement or two. It may be as simple as

Referenceline y=100;

Referenceline y=150;

but where the statments go may depend on what else you are attempting.

I need a band extending from 100 to 150 not two reference lines.

## Re: Band from 100 to 150

Here is an example based on a SASHELP dataset which you may adapt:

``````proc sgplot data=sashelp.citiwk;
band x=date lower=9.5 upper=10.5 / fill;
series x=date y=wspca;
xaxis type=time valuesformat=yyweeku6.;
run;``````
