How Errors in Sizing Are Handled

Sometimes SAS/GRAPH cannot fit one or more graphics elements on the graph. This can happen if an element is too big for the available space. An example is when the title is too long. Or perhaps you have too many elements to fit in a given space. An example of this is a bar chart with too many bars. In these cases, SAS/GRAPH does one of the following:
  • resizes the graphics element and issues a warning explaining what it did
  • issues an error message and does not attempt to produce the graph
For example, it adjusts the size of titles to make them fit but it does not drop bars in order to produce a readable bar chart. If you get unexpected results or no graph, check the SAS log for notes, warnings, and errors.
