v9.5
Got a graph that generates line correctly, but there are 17,000 daily data points on xaxis. Having trouble changing the point numbers into observation dates. Have done this before, but somehow cannot get this to work now.
What would be the best way to convert to dates. Data runs from Jan 3, 1950 to July 11, 2017.
Thanks.

changing obs label from numbers to dates
That appears to be equation output

Re: changing obs label from numbers to dates
My graph output is in attached .wf1
Hope you can open it.
Only thing I can't figure out is how to change to observation dates.
Thanks.

Re: changing obs label from numbers to dates
I assume you're talking about the matrix object, results.
Matrices do not have dates or a time dimension.
You'll have to convert it to series. You can use the mtos command for that.

Re: changing obs label from numbers to dates
Yes, using matrix called "results". Thanks for suggestion. Will try later today.
