I assume you have the historical data. You need to create the other data
in SAS explicitly, either using a procedure or a datastep. Some
procedures may create the plot for you. Otherwise, you need to use the
PLOT procedure or the GPLOT procedure, if you have SAS/GRAPH licensed, and
overlay the plots.
