Usually, you use axis tables when there is a clear link between the rows of the axis table and the graph. I'll show how to use an axis table to create a table that is independent of the graph. This post also uses discrete attribute maps.

The previous post on Multiple Blank Categories showed how to include multiple blank categories on the axis. But, given the purpose for this was to separate different segments in the data, I also included ideas on how to segmented a discrete axis using reference lines or Block Plot. A similar idea
Axis tables can use the SUM= option to summarize data and display means, medians, sums, and percentages. They can instead be used to display data, text, and statistics without any summarization.
This post provides a general macro that enables you to easily display special characters (Unicode) in axis table columns.
In PROC GLM and most other procedures that compute LS-means, mean comparisons are now displayed graphically. This makes comparisons between a large number of groups easier to interpret.
This post shows a variety of techniques including how to use PROC TEMPLATE and the SOURCE statement, PROC SGPLOT with multiple Y-axis tables, create comparable axes in two side-by-side graphs, create a broken axis, write and use a table template that wraps text, and find and display examples of certain statements in graph templates and fonts in style templates.
Axis tables enable you to combine tabular and graphical information into a single display. I love axis tables. My involvement with axis tables dates back over 30 years to their ancient predecessor, the table that contains an ASCII bar chart. In the mid 1980s, I created a table in PROC
A Box Plot is very popular to view the distribution of an analysis variable with one or more classifiers. Also, everyone wants to customize the graph in different ways. One recent request was for creating a box plot by category and group along with the display of various statistics and overlaid
I have written a new book on advanced ODS Graphics examples. It is available as a free PDF file on the web. It is in color, and all of the SAS code is available by double clicking a link at the beginning of each example. Advanced ODS Graphics Examples Update:
