Where QMF report data appears on a chart
To understand how to present and label data in a chart, review where the report data appears in the chart.
Compare the report in Figure 1 and the bar chart in Figure 2 to see how QMF displays report data on a chart. Both were created using the default report form.
You specify the following parts of a chart using a QMF form:
- Chart heading
- X-axis data labels
- Y-axis data labels
The following table shows the correspondence between report and chart data.
|This part of the report:||Corresponds to this part of the chart:|
|Report heading||Chart heading|
|First (left-most) column of the report. If you define a GROUP or BREAK column, the data in that column appears on the X-axis||X-axis data|
|Values in the left-most column, or the GROUP or BREAK column||X-axis data labels|
|Remaining numeric columns||Y-axis data|
|Values in the remaining numeric columns||Y-axis data labels|
|Column headings for the Y-axis data||Legend|
