My application is a Win32 application written using Borland C++ Builder 6.0. The application is required to produce a report in html format. Apart from text and table, the report includes some graph/bar. How do I put graph/bar into the report ?

you can use microsofts Office web components to do this. its fairly exhaustive and good.
another way is to use office automation and save the graph as an image (office automation allows this) and use the image in the html

I am trying out ChartFX activeX. Anyone has any idea how I can export it to a jpeg file ? I didn't see any method (in chartFX) that allows me to do that.  Does microsoft office web components require MS Office to be installed in order for it to work ? I am supposed to distribute my app to client.
