Yes, everything is possible! I think there are two ways, one is simple, the
other is not:
1. (should be simple): use GPLOT also for the "histogram". Just use the
needle option with very thick needles to produce a pseudo histogram and
overlay it with the line-plot. This pseudo histograms are not bad. Maybe
one thing is, that you have to manipulate the x-axis, because the needles
will overlay the vertical axis otherwise. Maybe you have to prepare your
data for the pseudo histogram. You should have not too many x-coordinate-
points, because for each of them there is one needle! The summarization,
GCHART is making normally, you have to do for your own! Maybe you can use a
format to get it in the classes which later get your bars...
2. Use PROC GREPLAY with special templates to overlay the graphs. One
problem seems to be the right axis! I don't know how to produce a plot with
ONLY a right axis. Maybe you can produce the plot without any axis and add
the axis via ANNOTATE.
3. You can produce one of the graphs completely by ANNOTATE. That is the
way you can do it all as you want it, but it's more work to do!
