Creating Graphs and Charts with Microsoft Graph 2000

Microsoft Graph 2000 (called in this book by its file name, Graph9) is a 32-bit OLE mini-server application (Graph9.exe) that's identical to version 8 supplied with Access 97. An OLE miniserver is an application that you can only run from within an OLE container application, such as Access. All Office 2000 members use Graph9, which originated as the charting component of Microsoft Excel. The sections that follow describe how to use Access's Chart Wizard to add graphs and charts to Access 2000 forms and reports. The "Using the Chart Web Control in Pages" section, later in the chapter, explains how you add charts and graphs to Data Access Pages (DAP).

Creating the Query on Which to Base the Graph

Most graphs required by management are the time-series type, as noted at the beginning of this chapter. Time-series graphs track the history of financial performance data, such as orders received, product sales, gross margin, and the like. In smaller firms, this data comes from tables that store entries from the original documents (such as sales orders and invoices) that underlie the summary information.
