I'm very new to SAS, so please keep that in mind with any responses.
I've been running the following code in SAS:
FILENAME fishfile URL "http://www.amstat.org/publications/jse/datasets/fishcatch.dat"; PROC FORMAT; VALUE sexfmt 0="female" 1="male"; VALUE speciesfmt 1="common bream" 2="whitefish" 3="roach" 4="silver bream" 5="smelt" 6="pike" 7="perch"; INVALUE misscode "NA"=. ; RUN; DATA fish; INFILE fishfile; INPUT obs species weight length1 length2 length3 hgtpct widpct sex; INFORMAT weight sex misscode.; LABEL length1="Nose to tail beginning length" length2="Nose to tail notch length" length3="Nose to tail end length"; FORMAT species speciesfmt. sex sexfmt.; RUN;
All of the above code runs without any errors. The following code gives me errors:
TITLE "Finnish Fish: Species distribution"; PROC SGPLOT DATA=fish; VBAR species; RUN; TITLE "Finnish Fish: Weight in grams"; PROC SGPLOT DATA=fish; HISTOGRAM weight; RUN;
I can't access the data right now so I don't have the specific error, but it says something along the lines of "Insufficient authorization" when I try to view the resulting plots. I will post the actual error message when I can access the data again, but until then I'm hoping that someone has encountered this error and found a solution.
Are you trying to open the file directly in SAS? This has caused problems for me before when working on a server. However if I open up explorer and browse to where the png file is stored (probably where your SAS program is saved) you should be able to open it from there with a variety of programs. From there I think you can isolate the program that is giving you trouble.
