showing values at tops of bars
- A user had a bar graph where bars were averages.
He knew that he could display the bar values near
the top of bars using proc bar 'showvalues'. But
what he wanted to do was display the N associated
with each average.
My reply was, that if the N values are present in the
data, they can be displayed using proc scatterplot
after the bars are drawn.
Eg. supposing your data is in file 'mystuff.dat', each
row having the fields 'date', 'avg' and 'n':
fieldnames: date avg n
// do the bars..
// add the N labels..
// ylocation: 7.5(s) // could be used to place labels across top
