Column/Bar charts

 

A column/bar chart is a chart with rectangular bars of lengths usually proportional to the magnitudes or frequencies of what they represent.

The column chart is vertically oriented bars. In column charts, categories are typically organized along the horizontal axis and values along the vertical axis.

The bar chart is horizontally oriented bars. In bar charts, categories are typically organized along the vertical axis and values along the horizontal axis. Consider using a bar chart when:

· The axis labels are long.
·  The values that are shown are durations.

The column/bar chart may contain single series (one Data series field and label field selected - one for Y-Axis and another one for X-Axis) or multi series (two or more Data series fields selected).

Chart settings on the Chart: Appearance screen:

· Chart 3D - this option allows building 3D (three-dimensional) chart. If this option is disabled, 2D (two-dimensional) chart will be built.
· Chart stacked - this option allows building stacked chart where a single bar on the chart shows data for more than one category of data. Stacked chart requires two or more Data series.
· Chart Scrolling - this option allows you display a scrollable chart. Don't forget to define the number of bars to show on the chart screen.
· Style (only for bar chart) - this option defines the style of bars (none, AquaLight, AquaDark).
· Type (only for bar chart) - this option defines the form of bars (column, cone, pyramid, cylinder).

Example of 3D Bar chart

Sample data table:

Sales2005

Audi

10000

14000

BMW

14000

15000

Volvo

10000
