The GCHART Procedure


Identifies the data set containing the chart variables. Optionally specifies annotation and an output catalog.

Requirements: An input data set is required.


PROC GCHART<DATA=input-data-set>


PROC GCHART statement options affect all graphs produced by the procedure.

specifies a data set to annotate all graphs that are produced by the GCHART procedure. To annotate individual graphs, use ANNOTATE= in the action statement.
See also: The Annotate Data Set

specifies the SAS data set that contains the variable(s) to chart. By default, the procedure uses the most recently created SAS data set.

specifies the SAS catalog in which to save the graphics output that is produced by the GCHART procedure. If you omit the libref, SAS/GRAPH looks for the catalog in the temporary library called WORK and creates the catalog if it does not exist.

creates a SAS data set that contains information about the graph and about areas in the graph. This information includes the shape and coordinates of the areas and is used to build an HTML file that links the graph areas to other files or images. This linking provides drill-down functionality on the graph. The Imagemap data set also contains the information that is stored in the variables referenced by the HTML= and HTML_LEGEND= options. Therefore, in order to use IMAGEMAP= to create an HTML file, you must also use the HTML= option or the HTML_LEGEND= option or both.
