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

Hi All,

I have 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)

This has to be done using proc gplot.

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.

Thanks

Hello Keen@SAS,

You can merge weeks and visits into a new character variable having valies like 2_15 (week=2 visits=15) and plot them on x-axis vertically using VALUE=(ANGLE=90) in your AXIS satetment.

Sincerely,
SPR
