Proc gchart and annotate: problem in all observations

Hi.

I created a hbar graph with proc gchart. I created dataset sas for annotate labels, but it generate strange error.

This is my code:

data anlabels2(drop=periodo de_risk_class2 valore id_periodo);

   length text $ 20 periodo $ 15;

   retain function 'label' style 'Albany AMT/bo' when 'a' xsys ysys '2' hsys '3' size 3 position '>' color 'black';

   set abc_report3_g2;

   format periodo $15.;

   midpoint=periodo; group=de_risk_class2; 

   text=left(put(abs(valore), commax20.2));

   output;

run;

options ps=100;

/* Set the graphics environment */

goptions reset=all cback=white border htitle=12pt htext=10pt; 

pattern1 color='#7f8eb8';

pattern2 color='#fee97f';

pattern3 color='#e0efff';

goptions device=png nodisplay xpixels=1024 ypixels=500;

axis1 value=none label=none;

axis2 label=none value=(font='Albany AMT/bo' JUSTIFY=RIGHT);

axis4 label=none value=(font='Albany AMT/bo');

legend2 frame label=("Periodo");

goptions display; 

/* Close the listing destination */

ods listing close;

/* This sample writes its output to C:\TEMP  */

/* when run on the Windows operating system. */

/* Modify the destination for the PATH=      */

/* option below if you want to write the     */

/* output to a location other than C:\TEMP   */

/* or if you are running on an operating     */

/* system other than Windows.                */

/* Open the HTML destination */

ods html path="&path.img/" (url=none) file="ReportSlide1.html";

proc catalog catalog=grafico2 kill force;

run;

/* Create the graphics output */

proc gchart data=work.abc_report3_g2 gout=work.grafico2;

  format valore commax20.2;

  format periodo $15.;

  hbar3d periodo

     / discrete

       sumvar=valore

             SHAPE=cylinder

             patternid=midpoint

             group=de_risk_class2

       name='ReportSlide2_prova'

             maxis=axis1

             raxis=axis4

             gaxis=axis2

             legend=legend1

             nostats

                    annotate=anlabels2;

       ;

run;

quit;

ods html close;

ods listing; 

Input dataset for anlabels2 and proc gchart is the same, but in log I get this note:

SUPERMON: Both horizontal and vertical values requested

SUPERMON: enter GANOERR ERROR( 20), ERRSTR()

The result is that I don't have any labels on my graph. What's the matter?

hi ... first, you'd get a LOT more attention for this question on the SAS/GRAPH AND ODS GRAPHICS community page

second, I think you need a value for X in the annotate data set ... where does the label go along the x-axis

you have a value for midpoint and group and they position the label on the y-axis on a horizontal bar chart

your SUMVAR is VALORE, so have you tried adding

x = valore;

to the data step that creates the annotate data set

here's a stripped down version of your SAS code that uses SASHELP.CLASS to produce a chart ... all I added to thet the annotate data set is the variable X

it produced the attached chart (doesn't show anything useful but it did work)

proc summary data=sashelp.class nway;

class sex age;

var weight;

output out=stats sum=;

run;

data anlabels2;

length text $ 20 ;

retain function 'label' style '"Albany AMT/bo"' when 'a' xsys ysys '2'

hsys '3' size 3 position '6' color 'black';

set stats;

midpoint=age;

group=sex;

text=cat(weight);

x = weight;

run;

goptions reset=all;

proc gchart data=sashelp.class;

hbar3d age / discrete

  sumvar=weight

  SHAPE=cylinder

  patternid=midpoint

  group=sex

  nostats

  annotate=anlabels2;

run;

quit;

ps  not sure what all your annotate errors mean

It looks like you are missing X, Y, and/or Z values on a couple of lines where you are calling the LABEL function. Look at the 7th obseravation (record) in your annotate dataset.

Re: Proc gchart and annotate: problem in all observations

I just try to insert x, y, z values but I obtain same error for all records (I've pasted only line 7, but that error appears for all 13 lines of my table).

I try to add "x=valore;" but I have same error. I think that the problem is that Periodo is alphanumeric, so as de_risk_class2.

hi ... it's OK that the two variables are character variables (in the example I posted, the group variable SEX is a character variable)

you do not need X, Y, and Z ... if you look at the exmaple I posted, I just have MIDPOINT, GROUP, and X and get annotate labels placed on the chart

at this point, I think that the only way you'll get some meaningful help with this is (if the data set is small enough) to attach you data set to a postinh so others can give it a try

Re: Proc gchart and annotate: problem in all observations

I add x=valore; and y=0; and now it's ok. Thanks.
