I like to create a bar graph for these variables:
acta actb actc actd acte actf
These are types of activity from the survey and I like to graph each frequencies.
I tried following code but it didn't work. Can someone please help me fix this?
title "Question 1";
proc sgplot data=gopintern;
vbar enta,entb,entc,entd,ente,entf / stat=freq;

VBAR wants a SINGLE variable for the Xaxis. To generate multiple bars, one for each of your original variables you would need to add a new variable to your data. Something like:
Q1Group = 'enta'; Response=enta;output;
Q1Group = 'entb'; Response=entb;output;
Q1Group = 'entc'; Response=entc;output;
Q1Group = 'entd'; Response=entd;output;
Q1Group = 'ente'; Response=ente;output;
Q1Group = 'entf'; Response=entf;output;
Then the VBAR statement would look like using the new data set in the SGPLOT statement
vbar Q1group / stat=freq;

Stat=Freq reports how many records have that value. You might need to provide some actual data examples.
BTW, it looks like you have some form of survey software that outputs each response category per question. If this is the case and the values are output as 0/1 for no/yes then use Response=Response and stat=sum OR use Freq=Response statement. If the response categories are values such as list position order we'll need to work on something else.
