Hi, by default you're probably using fitpolicy=rotate. In the xaxis statement try using fitpolicy=stagger or fitpolicy=thin. Although thin will remove some of the xaxis tick mark values.

Not likley to happen with SGPLOT and SAS 9.2. The options for that level of control just aren't there in that release.

You either will have to move to one of the the other procs like GPlot or Gchart where the AXIS statements will let you have that level of control or experiment with the FITPOLICY options for XAXIS to find something you can live with.

I agree I tried everything but can't so will change to gplot now. Thanks for confirming

That's true, I was thinking 0 degrees instead of 90 degrees. To Rotate to 90 degrees you would probably have to use gplot or gchart in 9.2 as ballardw suggests You could use GTL, but that would mean that you would have to create the tick mark values by yourself using the Entry statement and then rotating them, which will take a bit of time.
