proc boxplot

Hello,

In proc boxplot, how to  draw the boxes from the 10th and the 90th percentiles in place of the distance from 25th and 75th percentiles (which is by default). In other words, I want the boxes to be lager?

Not really following your question, however if you have graph issues, I generally start here: http://blogs.sas.com/content/graphicallyspeaking/

There are plenty of examples of all types of graphs.  Maybe move your code to sgplot or GTL, more control over output.

I reformulate my question. To be more clear

In this link http://www.math.wpi.edu/saspdf/stat/chap18.pdf page404 Figure 18.2. Skeletal Box-and-Whisker Plot. They draw the box from 25th to 75 percentiles I want to do it from 10th to 90th percentiles

Well, just doing a Google of it seems to indicate the answer as no - bearing in mind that document you post is for SAS V8.

Having a quick search of the blog I posted reveals this post, which I believe is what you want to do:
