I don't recall seeing any replies this morning so here are a couple ideas.

Proc GBARLINE will plot a bar chart with a superimposed line but I suspect that you want isolated and not connected dots.

If you want individual dots, I would use Proc Gchart with an Annotate data set which would add the circles. Take a look at

if you scroll down the page, you will find an example in which numeric values were added to a bar chart.

If you are not familiar with Annotate, the general process for the type of application that you want is to build a data set with a series of obs, one for each bar. The following bit of code is from the example page

function='symbol'; style='marker'; text='V'; color='red'; size=5; output;

This tells sas that you want to stick a symbol of a given shape, size and color at a set of xy coordiates. The x and y come from the data set which you are graphing. The x will refer to the bar and the y will be above or at the top of the bar. If you refer to the annotate section of the SAS/Graph manual, you will see a longer discussion of the topic.
