The syntax for the VBAR statement is as follows:
- VBAR (variable-list)
< / options > ;
You can use any number of VBAR statements in the PARETO procedure.
If you specify two or more variables in the VBAR
statement, they must be enclosed in parentheses. The
components of the VBAR statement are described as follows.
- specify the layout and features of the chart,
and they are listed after a slash (/) that follows the
variables to be analyzed.
The "Summary of Options" section, which follows,
provides summary tables of options organized by function.
The "Dictionary of Options"
describes the options in detail.
- specifies the process variables to be analyzed.
A chart is created for each variable,
and the values of each variable determine
the Pareto categories for that chart.
A list of two or more variables must be enclosed in
The variables can be numeric or character, and
the maximum length of a character variable
is 32. Formatted values are used to determine the categories and
are displayed in labels and legends. The maximum format length is 32.
