Dot Plot Conditional Formatting Question

I'm relatively new to SAS (Enterprise Guide 6.1), and I'm building graphs using the dot plot within PROC SGPLOT.  I'm graphing out observed to expected ratios with confidence limits based on the mean. I have everything I need so far, but want to add in conditional formatting, if possible, based on the limit range.  If the Upper Limit is below 1.0 I want it to be one color and if the Lower Limit is above 1.0 I want another.  Here's the code I have so far:

PROC SGPLOT DATA=WORK.SORTTempTableSorted;

refline 1.0/ lineattrs=(color=blue thickness=1.5pt) axis=x;

By Site;

  dot AttendingNPI / response=DirectCostOERatio

  stat=mean

  limitstat=clm

  limitattrs=(color=bib)

  categoryorder=respasc;

  RUN;QUIT;

Re: Dot Plot Conditional Formatting Question

It is easier to help if you attach the full program including the data.   I suggest you compute another variable 'GRP' that is set using the condition you have defined.  Then use GROUP=GRP on the dot plot statement.  First encountered group value will get the GRAPHDATA1 color.  If you want to have more precise control of the color, with SAS 9.3 you can use the DiscreteAttrMap to assign specific colors to specific values of the GRP variable.  See doc for details.  Here is a Blog article on DiscreteAttrMaps.
