Multiple lines per graph -- Put many graphs in one sheet too cluttered

Hi,

I have a dataset which I attach herewith (too many obs).

I use the following three pieces of code to generate graphs and export them to Excel (I use msoffice2k since excelxp tagsets for some reason does not work for me)

Unfortunately the results I am getting are "horrible"..

I am getting:

-- messy huge labels

-- the dataset under the Graph etc..

When I am using the BY Dev_YR_MNTH; then I get 60 graphs while I would wish to have them all in one page side-by-side.

I would very much appreciate if you could help me out to make more presentable the output.

Thank you

Nikos

Re: Multiple lines per graph -- Put many graphs in one sheet too cluttered

60 graphs while I would wish to have them all in one page side-by-side.

Can you explain what you mean by that?

You want 60 graphs on one page, or 60 lines on one graph?

Can you post a sample of what you're looking to achieve?

Re: Multiple lines per graph -- Put many graphs in one sheet too cluttered

Try your SGPANEL code again; but, on the PANELBY statement, add the option ONEPANEL. That will force all of the panel cells to be on one page. Be sure you make the width and height big enough to hold them. Hope this helps!
