A worthy question. Seems like a bug...

I'm running v9.1.3 Service Pack 4 on the XP_PRO platform, by the way.

Thanks!

Yes they are truncated at column 133. But why? This example reproduces the problem using sashelp.class.

symbol i=rc v=dot; proc gplot data=sashelp.class(rename=(height=proportion_enrolled weight=years_past sex=enroll_type)); *plot height * weight = sex / regeqn; plot proportion_enrolled * years_past=enroll_type / regeqn; run; quit;

If you can shorten the names of your variables you should be able to see all of the equation. y * x = z :)

But when I plug numbers into those equations to produce predicted values, they do not track the lines on the plots at all. In particular, that first eq would have the curve bending back up at about 6 years_past, which is very much not the case on the plot. I'm also having a hard time interpreting those last terms in each equation--shouldn't those be merged with the intercept? > > > > Finally, if I fit a quadratic model w/GLM one value of enroll_type at a time, I get very different parameters.
