Chapter 19. Adding Charts and Graphics t... > Using the Chart Web Control in Pages

Using the Chart Web Control in Pages

The Chart Office Web Control is a lightweight version of Graph9 with its own lightweight Office Chart Wizard (OCW). Charts you generate with the OCW are very similar to corresponding Graph9 charts. The Chart control is an ActiveX control, not an OLE miniserver, so you don't have the benefit of grafted menus to set chart properties. After you've created a chart with the OCW, you can alter only a few of its properties. If you want to create with Access dynamic charts and graphs for Web pages, the Chart control is your only choice; Graph9 doesn't work in the HTML environment. The only way of displaying a Graph9 object in a Web page is to use a screen capture utility to take a .gif or .jpg shapshot of the graph or chart, and then add a link to the static graphic.

The OCW doesn't accommodate conventional crosstab queries; instead, it wants two- column (for a single series) or three-column (for multiple series) aggregate query result sets. The OCW also accepts data from PivotTable and Spreadsheet controls.
