question about Log-scale of Y-Axis

Is there any way to change the Y-Axis to log-scale from VA?

I only see the range change for Axis, but didn't find way to modify to LN/Log scale?

Thanks!

Lucy, thanks for your question.  A logarithmic scale for a y-axis is not currently available in VA, and SAS is already considering this as an enhancement for a future release of VA.

Hi Lucy,

With your question about hyperlinks in the cell of tables, there have been are similar discussions in the community. Please refer to the following which I reference some of these threads -

Michelle,



Thanks for your reply. I read the post, but don’t think it gives me solution.

One column of my data provide individual URL for each cell.
For example, in SAS VA demo page

http://www.sas.com/software/visual-analytics/demos/ebola-analysis.html

By clicking Data Quality/Check Tab, you will see Link.

ALL the link is not accessible through VA, which is not
convenient at all. GIS, even Excel could have this basic function to do it.

Thanks !

Re: question about Log-scale of Y-Axis

Michelle, thanks for asking about plans for this capability to support data driven hyperlinks in tables in a future VA release.  I spent some time with R&D to find out if there is a workaround today, and I apologize for the delay.  Lucy, if I understand correctly, you need a way to have complete URLs based on a column in your source table that will navigate report consumers to those URLs when clicked.  There is no reliable workaround for this in VA 7.1.  SAS plans to include this in a future release – however, it will not be in the imminent 7.2 release.

As you likely know, VA 6.2 and higher support external links via URL from report objects.  The capability currently is designed where a portion of the URL must be static, such as http://www.twiter.com, and the final portion of the URL can be data driven.  The first part of the URL is provided by the report author and it is required.  For instance, you could simply enter www or http://www.  Note that the OK button in the Edit External Link window will be enabled if you simply enter http://, but the resulting link will not work reliable for all supported browsers and after saving the report multiple times.  Here is a link to the relevant section in the VA 7.1 User’s Guide

Lucy, as you pointed out, the sample report based on the Ebola data displays a URL in the list table on the Data Quality / Check section that appears clickable.  I looked at that particular report in the report designer and I noticed that the author created a display rule for that column that essentially makes the text blue and underlined if the text contains http://.  This display rule makes it appear as if it would navigate to the URL displayed but alas, it doesn’t.  Again, SAS does intend to add full support for this in a future release.

Thanks,

Rick Styll
