I have a proc gchart where I would LOVE to use the order=("value1" "value2") with my GROUP variable. So far, I can switch the midpoints order, but I really need to order the GROUP variable. I get error messages below with my failed code.
I understand that "Order value specified in the AXIS statement does not match a midpoint value". But I don't want to order the midpoints variable! I am able to order the midpoints with the variable &primary_var1 when I omit the order=("") in the axis statement. But again, that does not switch up the order of the GROUP var. Of course, I can code a dummy variable and then use it in a proc sort, but I was hoping not to do that. Any ideas?
12873 axis1 label=none value=(font="arial" c=black angle=0)
12873! minor=none split='*' INTERVAL=EVEN order=(0 to 100 by 20)
12874 axis2 label=none value=(font="arial" c=black);
12875 axis3 label=none value=(height=3 angle=0) order=("Smith"
12875! "Jones" "Jackson" "Ford" "Anderson" "Cooper"
12876 "Long" "Torres" "Hughes" "All");
12878 title1 "Ratings";
12879 *footnote1 j=L "Attorney Work Product"; *footnote2 j=L
12879! "Privleged and Confidential";
12881 proc gchart data=gchart;
12882 format sortit subfmt.;
12883 label concat="00"x pct_col="00"x; /* takes away the titles */ !!! Is this a crazy way to eliminate labels?
12884 vbar &primary_var1 /
12895 midpoints= "Male" "Female";
WARNING: Order value specified in the AXIS statement does not

WARNING: The bottom horizontal axis labeled word could not be
fit as specified. The axis values will overwrite.
WARNING: There was not enough room to use the specified width
of 2.25 and space of 0.5 for the bars.
WARNING: No bars were drawn. This could have been caused by
ORDER= on the AXIS statement. You may wish to use the
MIDPOINTS= option on the VBAR statement or make sure
the values of the GROUP=word variable match the ORDER=
values (if given) on axis statement 2.

OMG! I just solved my own problem! I had the axis2 and axis3 pointed incorrectly to the maxis and gaxis!
