Hi
  I wish to plot a 3D Bar Chart onto a Web page and I did this :

    Const xl3DBarClustered=60
    Const xlWorkSheet = -4167
       
    ' -- Create an instance of Excel Application
    Set xlapp = Server.CreateObject("Excel.Application")
    ' -- Create a new workbook
    Set wb = xlapp.Workbooks.Add(xlWorksheet)
    ' -- Grab the first worksheet of the new workbook
    Set ws = wb.Worksheets(1)
   
    ' -- Insert the data the user requested
    ' -- First, the title
    ws.Range("A1").Value = "Some Histogram Plot"
   
    ' -- Then the data in two vertical columns
    For i = 1 To 12
       iDay = i
       ws.Range("A" & i + 1).Value = i+1
       ws.Range("B" & i + 1).Value = iDay & "-08-2001"
    Next
   
    ' -- Set our source range
    Set SourceRange = ws.Range("A2:B13")
    ' -- Create a new Chart Object
    Set crt = ws.ChartObjects.Add(20, 20, 600, 400)
   
    crt.Chart.ChartWizard SourceRange, 4, , 2, 1, 0, 2, "Histogram Plot"    

    ' -- Configure the Chart
    crt.Chart.ChartType = xl3DBarClustered
    crt.Chart.SeriesCollection(1).Name = "=Sheet1!R1C1"
    crt.Chart.HasTitle = True
    crt.Chart.BarShape = 3
    crt.Chart.Axes(1, 1).HasTitle = True
    crt.Chart.Axes(1, 1).AxisTitle.Characters.Text = "No of Postings"
    crt.Chart.Axes(2, 1).HasTitle = True
    crt.Chart.Axes(2, 1).AxisTitle.Characters.Text = "Time Period"
   
... continue


    By doing so, the chart is horizontal. Also I can't seem to rotate the Chart by calling crt.Chart.rotate = 90. Does anyone have a clue on this?

Thanks

tigresz,

Try change :

crt.Chart.ChartType = xl3DBarClustered

To:

crt.Chart.ChartType = VtChChartType3dBar

Hi guys,

I know Excel has very good chart presentation. Can I ask a few questions?

1. With the embeded Excel chart, will every user be able to view Excel chart even if he/she hasn't installed Excel on PC?

2. Is Excel chart browser compatible on Netscape as well?

3. What's the advantage of using Excel chart, compared with some chart components, such as Dundas, JPowered, etc?

I will pass points if necessary.

Thanks in advance!!!

This is no possible, in netscape is no support ActiveX this is the main problem.

If you want do the chart, i suggest using the flash or some graph components.
