SAS 9.2 and GOPTIONS SORTMETH=BINARY

SAS/Graph 9.2 on z/OS (IBM mainframe) changes default-behavior with regard to chart bar sequencing (possibly more) with handling/ordering lowercase characters. This condition was observed with SAS/Graph on z/OS (SAS (9.2 TS2M0 specifically), and has not been verified on any other OS platform.

The direction given from SAS Support to generate consistent results with SAS 9.1.3 was to code the following GOPTIONS override:

GOPTIONS SORTMETH=BINARY;

I wanted to pass this information along to others who may be interested.
