Starting with Graphs

I'm an experienced SAS user but haven't had any experience creating graphs in SAS.

My first questions is: Can I create any basic graphs at all with just Base SAS or do I have to have SAS Graph to do any graphing what-so-ever?

If I can create a basic graph in Base SAS where do I start?  I'm looking for the simplest proc statement to just get started with.

Re: Starting with Graphs

I got started.  Tell me this - if I can run a proc sgplot does that mean I have SAS Graph.  I'm thinking it does and that I must already have SAS Graph and didn't know it.

Re: Starting with Graphs

SGPLOT is part of Base SAS (since SAS 9.3).  Some traditional SAS graphical procedures -- GPLOT, GCHART, GMAP -- these are part of SAS/GRAPH.  To see if you have SAS/GRAPH, run:

proc product_status; run;


Example partial output:


For Base SAS Software ...

  Custom version information: 9.4_M2

  Image version information: 9.04.01M2P072314

For SAS/STAT ...

  Custom version information: 13.2

For SAS/GRAPH ...

  Custom version information: 9.4_M2

For SAS/ETS ...

  Custom version information: 13.2

For SAS/OR ...

  Custom version information: 13.2

For SAS/IML ...

  Custom version information: 13.2
