error bars.
outlines all bars or bar segments and legend values
in the subgroup legend (if it appears) using the specified color.
specifies colors for reference lines.
specifies a color for all text on the axes and legend,
including axis labels, tick mark values, legend labels, and legend
value descriptions.

bar chart or a back wall is drawn in a three-dimensional bar chart.

of bars.
identifies the image file that you want to apply
to a two-dimensional chart's axis area
or a three-dimensional chart's back
wall.
specifies whether to use multiple instances of an
image, or stretch a single image.
specifies the line type for reference lines at major
tick marks, as determined by the AUTOREF option.
assigns the specified LEGEND definition to the legend
generated by the SUBGROUP= option.
specifies line types for reference lines.
suppresses the legend that is automatically generated
by the SUBGROUP= option.
suppresses the legend that is automatically generated
by the SUBGROUP= option.
specifies how fill patterns are assigned.
specifies the shape of the bars in charts that are
produced with the HBAR3D and VBAR3D statements.
specifies the amount of space between individual
bars or between the bars within each group if you also use the GROUP=
option.
displays a list of the subgroup values of the specified
statistic above the bars.
specifies the line width for reference lines at
major tick marks, as determined by the AUTOREF option.
specifies the width of the bars.
specifies the width of the outline in pixels.
specifies line widths for reference lines.
Axis options
arranges the bars in ascending order of the value
of the chart statistic.
draws a reference line at each major tick mark on
the response axis.
specifies values for the major tick marks or assigns
specified AXIS definitions to the axis.
clips the reference lines at the bars.
arranges the bars in descending order of the value
of the chart statistic.
specifies that reference lines drawn by the AUTOREF
or REF= options should be drawn in front of the bars.
assigns the specified AXIS definition to the group
axis.
assigns the specified AXIS definition to the midpoint
axis.
specifies the number of minor tick marks between
each major tick mark on the response axis.
suppresses all axes, including axis lines, axis
labels, axis values, and all major and minor tick marks.
suppresses the zero reference line when the SUM
or MEAN chart statistic has negative values.
suppresses any midpoints for which there are no
corresponding values of the chart variable and, hence, no bar.
displays on the axis of the chart the range of numeric
values represented by each bar.
specifies values for the major tick mark divisions
on the response axis or assigns the specified AXIS definition to the
axis.
draws reference lines at the specified points on
the response axis.
Catalog entry description options
specifies a description of the output.
specifies the name of the GRSEG catalog entry and
the name of the graphics output file, if one is created.
Midpoint options
treats a numeric chart variable as a discrete variable
rather than as a continuous variable.
organizes the data according to values of group-variable.
specifies the number of midpoints to be graphed
for a chart variable.
generates default midpoints using the Nelder algorithm
(Applied Statistics 25:94–7,
1976).
specifies the midpoint values for the bars.
accepts a missing value as a valid midpoint for
the chart variable.
divides the bars into segments according to the
values of subgroup-variable.
ODS options
identifies
the variable in the input data set whose values create links.
identifies
the variable in the input data set whose values create links or data
tips or both.
specifies
a character variable whose values are URLs.
Statistic options
displays the cumulative frequency statistic in the
table of statistics and above vertical bars.
specifies the text of the column label for the CFREQ
statistic in the table of statistics.
displays the cumulative percentage statistic in
the table of statistics and above vertical bars.
specifies the text of the column label for the CPERCENT
statistic in the table of statistics.
draws confidence levels.
displays the frequency statistic in the table of
statistics and above vertical bars.
specifies a variable whose values weight the contribution
of each observation in the computation of the chart statistic.
specifies the text of the column label for the FREQ
statistic in the table of statistics.
calculates the percentage and cumulative percentage
statistics separately for each group.
displays the values of the specified statistic inside
the bars.
displays the mean statistic in the table of statistics
and above vertical bars.
specifies the text of the column label for the MEAN
statistic in the table of statistics.
suppresses the table of statistics.
displays the values of the specified statistic above
the bars.
prints the percentages of observations having a
given value for the chart variable in the table of statistics and
above vertical bars.
specifies the text of the column label for the PERCENT
statistic in the table of statistics.
calculates a percent of the sum variable for horizontal
bar charts.
displays the sum statistic in the table of statistics
and above vertical bars.
specifies the text of the column label for the SUM
statistic in the table of statistics.
specifies a numeric variable for sum or mean calculations.
specifies the chart statistic.
