A quickish and dirty way would be to add a REFLINE that is opaque and the color of the background color of the plot area that coinsides with that location.

For simple cases, you could compute the sequential values yourself and use HighLow plot.  This will give you full control.

There is an option in GTL waterfall chart to turn off the final bar; but, unfortunately, we do not currently have it in SGPLOT. However, you can use the TMPLOUT option on the SGPLOT procedure statement to dump out the GTL template. Then, on the WATERFALLCHART statement after the "/", add this option:

 

display=(fill outline connect)

 

Run this template with PROC SGRENDER. This should give you your current appearance, minus the final bar.

 

Hope this helps!

Dan
