Using the Chart Expert

Reflecting back on the sample reports used in Hours 5 and 7, you might find that there are opportunities for enhancement through the addition of meaningful charts. As reviewed in Hour 6 with groupings, it is quite easy to summarize the data we collect for a report into meaningful categories or groups. Hour 6 reviews some examples of grouping based on fields such as country and customer name. By hiding or suppressing the detail sections of reports, you learned how to bring the meaningful summarizations around these types of groups to the forefront. (Do you remember how to hide/suppress the detail sections? Hint: use the right-click menu.) To further bring this aggregated data to the business user's attention, you can create a chart on this grouped data using the Chart Expert.

To open the Chart Expert, either click on the Chart icon located on the Insert Toolbar or select the Insert Chart option under the main Insert menu. Figure 11.1 displays the Chart Expert.
