about Sgscatter and Gplot

Dear all

I have two questions:

1) Proc SGSCATTER:  is there the same statement used in PROC GPLOT:

    order=(x to xx by x)?

2) Proc GPLOT: How can I do not to show the digits after comma (.00) in Y AXIS ?

Thanks in advance for any help

about Sgscatter and Gplot

To answer the SGSCATTER question:

If you are creating single-cell scatter plots like you would with GPLOT, you should be using SGPLOT instead of SGSCATTER. SGSCATTER is designed to create panels of scatter plots and matrices. In SGPLOT, there are four axis statements: XAXIS, YAXIS, X2AXIS, and Y2AXIS. You can specify VALUES=(x to y by z) on the necessary axis. Also, the optional VALUESHINT option changes the interpretation of VALUES such that the start and end values do not dictate the axis range.

Hope this helps!

Per the gplot question ... you can use a format statement on the y-variable to control its appearance.  For example:

proc gplot data=sashelp.stocks;

format close comma8.0;

plot close*date;

run;
