rIs it possible to control the xaxis (category axis) when using VBAR in the SG procedures? I have 40 months and want to show stacked bars where each bar height is a population and the stacks are comprised of population subcategories.
The issue is that the xaxis is unreadable. None of the xaxis options for time values are effective with VBAR.
Can I get around this with GTL? It's proving to be an enormous time sink, and I don't think that having a bar chart with time as the xaxis is that unreasonable a thing to try to do...

Assuming I understand the problem you have with the xaxis, I would use a format (either a built in format or a custom one) to display the date variables as you need. For example:
data sale; set sashelp.prdsale; format month MONYY7.; run; proc sgplot data=sale; vbar month/response=actual group=product groupdisplay=stack; run;
If that doesn't work for you, more detail would be helpful in terms of what you want to see on the x axis.
