Why does the second symbol statement not have the effect?

Hi all,

I just want to create an overlay plot. I defined the first plot symbol as square and the second one as dot, however the result shows both of them are squares. I attache the code and the plot below. Does any one know why the SYMBOL2 statement does not work? Thank you in advance!

goptions reset=all;

symbol1 interpol=join

        value=square;

symbol2 interpol=join

        value=dot

        ;

axis1 order=(1 to 2 by 1) offset=(2,2)

label=("Cycle");

axis2

label=("Participants");

legend1 label=none

position=(top center inside)

mode=share;

proc gplot data=act_exp1;

plot actual*cycle expect*cycle/overlay legend=legend1

                               vref= 5 to 35 by 5

                               haxis=axis1

                               vaxis=axis2;

run;

Kane

Re: Why does the second symbol statement not have the effect?

To move the next statement, you have to specify both the color AND the value. However, if you just want to get the color from the ODS style, use "_style_" for the color:

symbol1 interpol=join color=_style_

        value=square;

symbol2 interpol=join color=_style_

        value=dot

        ;

Hope this helps!
