proc gbarline 9.1.3 code from 9.2 code

Hi,

I'm trying to convert some 9.2 gbarline code to 9.1.3 and while I have acheived it to an extent I am having problems with a couple of items. My main issue is how to create a legend but I am also having an issue with assigning multiple colours to an individual bar.

Rather than pasting both sets of code here I thought I'd see if anyone could help first. Happy to provide the code if you would like to see what I've done.

I believe the annotate function may be the way forward but it looks fairly cumbersome alongside the legend function and I just wanted to make sure I wasn't going about things the long way.

Many thanks

The gbarline procedure is fairly new, and new options & functionality have been added in newer releases (ie, it's an evolving thing). The "subgroup" option (multiple colored segments within a bar) was added in v9.2, and therefore you will not be able to use that option in v9.1.3's proc gbarline.

If you absolutely need a similar graph in v9.1.3, you could use proc gchart to draw the bar chart with sugbroups (multiple colored segments in bars), and then use "annotate" to draw the line.

Thanks Rob, I've just been looking into doing that and it seems the easiest way of doing it, I don't suppose you can point me in the direction of any annotate code that will acheive what I'm after?
I'm trying to learn this as I go against a fairly tight deadline so any help would be appreciated.
Many thanks
