Urgent: How would I get bars connected using lines in a vertical subgroup bar chart.

Please find the attached file for reference. I am able to create the sub group bar chart but struggling in connecting bars using lines. Any Help would be greatly appreciated.

Which proc are you using?  Gchart, Gbarline, or one of the new SG procedures? (or other?)

And are you writing code, or using the EG interface?

Thank You so much for your quick response.

At present I am using proc gchart  and yes I am writing code.

Please help if you have a solution for it.

Thanks Again.

Here's a basic example that demonstrates how to annotate a line onto a stacked gchart bar chart:

But one 'tricky' part will be that gchart will be summing up the bar segments for you and stacking them at the appropriate y-location, whereas in the annotate you'll need to calculate the summed/stacked y-coordinate yourself.

Perhaps it might be better to take a different approach - perhaps leave out the connecting lines, and let the bars touch, as in the following example:
