split option in axis statement/splitng the label into two lines on x-axis

Hi All,

I hvae used split option in axis statement to split the values into two lines on x-axis .Since i have used the tick option the split option is not working here, i have even tried with the format statement also to split it into two lines
Because of the irregular weeks, i have to use tick option to display them rather than by using them directly.
axis2 order=(0 to 52 by 4) offset=(4,4) label=none minor=none split =','
value=(h=3 tick=1 '0,V4' tick=2 '4,V5' tick=3 '8,V7' tick=4 '12,V8' tick=5 ' ' tick=6 ' ' tick=7 ' ' tick=8 '26,V9' tick=9 ' '
tick=10 ' ' tick=11 '39,V10' tick=12 ' ' tick=13 ' ' tick=14 '52,,V11' );


I need to display the x-axis label in two lines like this

0 2 4 9 12 14 (This is firstline for weeks)
v1 v2 v3 v4 v5 v6 (this is second line for visits)

Can anyone please help me in splitting the value into two lines inspite of tick option, or any other alternative.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

This has to be done using proc gplot.

Thanks

I have never been very successful with the split= option. However repeating a justification option will cause the text to split.
[pre]
axis1 value = (t=1 j=c '11' j=c 'years'
t=2 j=c '12' j=c 'years');
proc gplot data=sashelp.class;
plot weight* age/haxis=axis1;
run;
quit;
[/pre]
