Fluorite | Level 6


I'm using SAS VA 8.3.1 version.

I need to create a graph which shows stacked bars, line and scatter graph together.

Let's say we have 6 columns in our data: Date,Val1, Val2,Val3, Val4 and Val5 . The x-axis should be date and val1,val2 will be stacked bar graph, val3 will be normal bar graph, val4 will be line graph and val5 will be dots/scatter graph. 

All columns from val1 to val5 are numeric and of the same measure.


Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank You

I am pretty sure you can do this with the graph builder, but why?


Why not create different charts, must be mcuh more easy to adopt and read?

Thanks for the reply!!!

I need to combine different types of graph for a specific requirement of the project.

I was able to create it using graph builder but i don't have all the functionalities as available in VA. For Ex: I'm not able to change the shape of scatter plt markers. Also, not able to assign different colors for stacked bar graph (PFA sample)

Ah, ok!

Is it not possible to change a lot of properties in the graph builder?

I think i have changed markers and colors in the builder that was not possible when in report builder....but I can remember wrong....:)

Thanks @FredrikE 

We have different options for graphs in SAS VA like choosing different data markers like dot, square, star etc for scatter plot or choosing different colors in stacked bar graph.

But in data builder I'm not able to get the same options as present in sas VA. Is there something I'm missing?
