Combining graphs on 1 page when using gplot with a by statement

Hello,

I am trying to produce a graph output in pdf.  I am using a by statement and would like to put 4 graphs on one page.  How can I do this?

Thanks!

Combining graphs on 1 page when using gplot with a by statement

If you were using "ods html", this would be pretty easy to do using htmlpanel ... but since you're wanting pdf output, it will be just a little harder.  You'll probably need to use "proc greplay".

Here's an example, from the Graph Gallery:

Combining graphs on 1 page when using gplot with a by statement

Here is an example of how to use ODS PDF directly to put multiple graphs on a page. I did one example using SGPLOT and the other using GCHART:

/* SG Procedure example */
ods pdf columns=2 startpage=no;
proc sort data=sashelp.prdsale out=temp; by product; run;
Title "Department Sales by Product";
proc sgplot data=temp;
by product;
hbar quarter / response=actual;
run;
ods pdf close;

/* GCHART example */
goptions reset=all hsize=3.5in vsize=2.5in;
ods pdf columns=2 startpage=no;
proc sort data=sashelp.prdsale out=temp; by product; run;
Title "Department Sales by Product";
proc gchart data=temp;
by product;
hbar quarter / sumvar=actual discrete nostat;
run;
ods pdf close;
