Hello,

     I'm using monthly data for 16 years.  When I use the command SGPLOT.  The horizontal axis is very crowded and cannot be read.  Is there any way to make the horizontal axis readable?

ThankYou.

Hello,

Can I ask one more question about SGPLOT?    If I'd like to show only January of each year on the X-Axis, how could I do that?

Thank You.

proc sgplot data=sashelp.air ;
series x=date y=air ;
xaxis fitpolicy=thin values=('01jan1950'd to '01jan1958'd by year)
valuesformat=date9.;

You might also want to examine what happens if change the FORMAT for your YEAR variable. Such as

proc sgplot data=sashelp.air ;
series x=date y=air ;
format date year4.;
run;

/* or */

proc sgplot data=sashelp.air ;
series x=date y=air ;
format date yyq6. ;
run;
