The Graph/Chart facility is a powerful utility for representing data held on the databases. Either predefined or use defined (customized) graphs and charts can be produced. A graph can be produced in a large range of graph types (eg. bar, line, pie, scatter etc) and practically any element on the graph can be customized. Powerful printing options are available to output the graph onto paper. The graph can be exported in a number of different formats (image, text, HTML, XML and Excel) for incorporation into other computer applications. The Chart columns can be repositioned, sorted and the chart can be printed.

A number of graphs are pre-defined for instant access or can be customised using a new Graph Customisation interface .

Favourite graph customisation settings can be saved and re-used later in the current database or any database of the same type

Graphs can be saved and loaded later

Graph is interactive allowing the scrolling of graph data if it does not fit on one screen, rotation, zooming and calling up the very powerful Chart Editor
