Enabling charting functions

QMF creates charts using the Interactive Chart Utility (ICU) supplied by the GDDM-PGF product.

About this task

From a single report, users can specify different chart formats, such as scatter charts, pie charts, and bar charts. When the user enters a QMF DISPLAY CHART or EXPORT CHART command, the chart format and the data are merged to produce graphics data file (GDF) data. Users can use IBM-supplied chart formats or create their own. In addition, they can save newly created chart formats, provided they have libraries in which to store them.
