Line Chart

A line chart displays data as a series of data points ordered by value and connected by lines. Therefore the line chart is used to visualize a trend in data over intervals of time.

../_images/NW_Orders_Line_Chart_Freight_by_Month.png

Fig. 262 Line Chart Freight by Month

For example, table Orders in Northwind database stores the OrderDate together with the Freight cost of each order. From that data, a report such as the trend of total Freight cost over each month would be best visualized using a line chart.

  1. “Each month” means using “Month” format for OrderDate field to get the month numeric value, then using the Group function to group data with the same month numeric value together.
  2. Then “total Freight cost over each month” means applying the Sum function for Freight value within each month group.

To configure the report like above:

  1. Select “Line” as the Chart Type in General Info group, two boxes will appear in Configuration section: “Labels (X-axis)” and “Values (Y-axis)”.
  2. Add the field OrderDate into Labels box (drag the field from Middle Panel or use the Add icon +).
  3. The field will be given the alias “Group(OrderDate)”.
  4. Select the field in Labels box to open the Field Properties box.
  5. Check to confirm that in Data Formatting group, “Group” is selected for the Function and “Month” is selected for the Format.
  6. Add the field Freight into Values box (drag the field from Middle Panel or use the Add icon +).
  7. The field will be given the alias “Sum(Freight)”.
  8. Select the field in Values box to open the Field Properties box.
  9. Check to confirm that in Data Formatting group, “Sum” is selected for the Function.

Bar Chart and Column Chart

A bar chart displays groups of data as rectangular bars with lengths proportional to the values that they represent. Therefore the bar chart is used to show comparisons among different groups.

The column chart is the same as the bar chart, except for being displayed vertically.

../_images/NW_Suppliers_Column_Chart_Supplier_Count_by_Country.png

Fig. 263 Column Chart Supplier Count by Country

For example, table Suppliers in Northwind database stores the list of suppliers specified by SupplierID together with the Country. From that data, a report such as comparing the number of suppliers per country would be best visualized using a column chart.

  1. “Per country” means using the Group function to group data with the same country text value together.
  2. Then “the number of suppliers per country” means applying the Count function for SupplierID value within each country group.

To configure the report like above:

  1. Select “Column” as the Chart Type in General Info group, two boxes will appear in Configuration section: “Labels (X-axis)” and “Values (Y-axis)”.
  2. Add the field Country into Labels box (drag the field from Middle Panel or use the Add icon +).
  3. The field will be given the alias “Group(Country)”.
  4. Select the field in Labels box to open the Field Properties box.
  5. Check to confirm that in Data Formatting group, “Group” is selected for the Function.
  6. Add the field SupplierID into Values box (drag the field from Middle Panel or use the Add icon +).
  7. The field will be given the alias “Count(SupplierID)”.
  8. Select the field in Values box to open the Field Properties box.
  9. Check to confirm that in Data Formatting group, “Count” is selected for the Function.

Area Chart

An area chart displays graphically quantitative data. It is based on the Line Chart. The area between axis and line are commonly emphasized with colors, textures and hatchings. Commonly one compares with an area chart two or more quantities.

For example, this area chart compares the amount of Product units in stock versus the amount on order.

../_images/Report_Chart_Area_UnitsInStock_UnitsOnOrder.png

Fig. 264 Area Chart UnitsInStock vs UnitsOnOrder

Another example with Range Only option.

../_images/Area_Chart_Range_Only.png

Pie Chart

A pie chart displays data in a circle, divided into slices to illustrate numerical proportion.

../_images/NW_Orders_Pie_Freight_by_Country_City.png

Fig. 266 Pie Chart Freight by Country

For example, a pie chart will compare proportions of the freight cost among different countries.

../_images/NW_Orders_Pie_Freight_by_Country_City_in_France.png

Fig. 267 Pie Chart Freight by City in France

This pie chart also drills down data to freight cost among different cities in a selected country.

To configure the report like that:

  1. Select “Pie” as the Chart Type in General Info group, two boxes will appear in Configuration section: “Labels (X-axis)” and “Values (Y-axis)”.
  2. Add the field ShipCountry into Labels box (drag the field from Middle Panel or use the Add icon +).
  3. The field will be given the alias “Group(ShipCountry)” (Group function is used as expected).
  4. Add the field ShipCity into Labels box (drag the field from Middle Panel or use the Add icon +).
  5. The field will be given the alias “Group(ShipCity)” (Group function is used as expected).
  6. Add the field Freight into Values box (drag the field from Middle Panel or use the Add icon +).
  7. The field will be given the alias “Sum(Freight)” (Sum function is used as expected).

Funnel Chart

A funnel chart displays values as progressively decreasing proportions. Ideally the funnel chart shows a process that starts at 100% and ends with a lower percentage where it is noticeable in what stages the fall out happens and at what rate - the funnel chart illustrates where the biggest bottlenecks are in the process.

Data like this sales pipeline data is best displayed using the funnel chart:

../_images/SalesPipeline_Funnel.png

Fig. 268 Funnel Chart

Stage Amount
Prospects 500
Qualified prospects 400
Needs analysis 200
Price quotes 150
Negotiations 100
Closed sales 50


Donut Chart

Donut Chart displays data in a ring, divided into slices to illustrate numerical proportion.
