Creating Graphs and Charts with Microsoft Graph 97

Microsoft Graph 97 (called in this book by its Registry programmatic ID, MSGraph8) is a 32-bit OLE 2.1 miniserver application. MSGraph8 is the 32-bit replacement to MSGraph5; MSGraph8 is an OLE mini-server that provides graphing capabilities to all Microsoft productivity applications. The sections that follow describe how to use the Graph Wizard to add MSGraph8 graphs and charts to Access 97 forms and reports.
