David - thanks for this insight. Having not started coding - I'm still
very much in the planning stage - do you have a suggestion that doesn't
involve CALL EXECUTE? You're right, there are going to be a LOT of
customers/graphs. I'm hunting through the SAL-L archives.
It strikes me that this would be a fairly common type of task to design
a SAS routine for... does anyone know of anything like it?
