Positions graphics elements within subgrouped bars of a vertical
or horizontal bar chart produced by the GCHART procedure.
||Numeric or character; must match the type of the
SUBGROUP variable used in the GCHART procedure.
||Should match the length of the SUBGROUP= variable
in the GCHART procedure.
||The bar charts must have been produced using
the SUBGROUP= option.
references value(s) of the SUBGROUP= variable
in the GCHART procedure either as a variable name or as an explicit data value.
Subgroup-value can have one of the following
Generally, specify a variable name if you want to annotate all
of the bars in a horizontal or vertical bar chart. To annotate a bar chart
for a specific value of the SUBGROUP variable, specify a specific value.
the name of a subgroup variable.
a specific numeric data value.
a specific character data value.
You can use the SUBGROUP variable only
with the data coordinate system 1, 2, 7, or 8, and with these functions:
Using the SUBGROUP variable is similar
to using the X and Y variables with data system coordinates to position the
graphics elements in subgroup segments in vertical and horizontal bar charts.For
example, in a vertical bar chart that produces a bar for each city in a data
set, you can easily label the subgroups in each bar by setting subgroup-variable to the GCHART variable by which the bar is
being subgrouped. This variable provides the y
coordinate of the label (so don't specify a competing value for y, but instead
specify y=. or y=y).
The MIDPOINT variable works well with the SUBGROUP variable
to provide the x coordinate. In this example, if you set the
MIDPOINT variable to the GCHART variable that contains the names of the cities,
the MIDPOINT variable provides your x coordinate. Rather than
providing the X and Y variables, you would use the SUBGROUP and MIDPOINT variables.
Using the SUBGROUP Variable to Position a Label in a Bar Chart shows how the SUBGROUP variable works with the MIDPOINT variable to label
the bars of a vertical bar chart.
