Displaying your report as a chart

You can display your tabular data in a wide variety of charts. You can change QMF chart formats, or create new chart formats.

QMF can send your report data to the Interactive Chart Utility (ICU), which displays the data as a chart. You do not need to learn everything about the ICU to create charts. You can create many basic charts by using only the QMF interface to the ICU.

Your site might not support the use of charts. Check with your administrator before you try to create charts. You cannot chart data or tables that contain columns defined as BINARY, VARBINARY, or XML. You can chart data or tables containing DECFLOAT data only when the processor on which QMF is running supports decimal floating-point instructions.
