What is the best way to generate a graph from data in an Access database and put it on a VB form or print it from VB?  Is there an OCX for viewing a graph from Access?  Is there a better designer/control?  Should I use Crystal 5.0?

From access directly you can use MSGRAPH but it sucks.  I've seen a tool from a company called First Impression (forget the product name) that looked good.  Also graphics server is good too

Try FIrst Impression.  You can look a them on the web at:
www.vbxtras/vb/firstimpression.asp.  Another good option is the Graphics Server from Pinnacle Publishing.  Both these guys will set you back $200 plus change, but they are worlds beyond the MSGraph control.

I am working on a graph module which i use Chartfx from software FX company . You can download demo version and use the component
as active in Vb. The component is very useful to draw graph and have a lot of features such as 3d view , rotation and many more.
check it out. you will surprise to see the function you got from the software.
