I'm doing a graph that is very similar to "12.3 Forest Plot" from "Statistical Graphics Procedures by Example".
I am using the X2AXIS to create a table of data values in the same way as in the example. I want the tick lables of X2AXIS to be on the bottom not the top as in the example.
Seems like there should be an option but I don't see one.

When we use SGPLOT to create this graph, we are actually cheating, and using the X and X2 axes to create the appearance of a 2 cell graph in one cell. While there may be more ways to cheat, and place the column labels at the bottom, I recommend you use GTL to create a good Forest Plot. See previous articles on Forest Plot in Graphically Speaking SAS blog.

I'm looking at your blog and I see several articles that refine forest plots in several ways. From what I have seen the tabular data is still always displayed with some version of X2AXIS and the "column" labels that are actually tick labels are always on the top. I just don't see a whole lot of difference between the programs in your book and the programs in the blog. Is there a specific article I should be looking at?
