Selecting a Chart Type

There are a number of chart types to choose from to best represent your information, including:

  • Column: compares values displayed as columns

  • Bar: compares values displayed as bars

  • Line: compares values displayed as points connected by lines

  • Area: compares values displayed as shaded areas

  • Pie: compares values displayed as slices of a circular graph


By default, the Reports Editor creates a column chart. However, you may select a different chart at any time.
