[GCHSTSUM-Specifying the SUM statistic in a Star chart]

This example produces a star chart of total sales for three sites by charting the values of the character variable SITE and calculating the sum of the variable SALES for each site. It represents the statistics as slices of the star. The center of the circle represents 0 and the edge of the circle represents the largest value, in this case Paris sales. By default, the spines are joined and filled with a solid pattern to form slices, and the midpoint value and the formatted values of the sales statistics are printed beside each slice.
