Charting in MSAccess

Hi there

I want to drop a chart in my MSAccess application. Charts will be displayed on my form and output on a sperate report. I'll need to put in some programming (especially in the printed report) to handle the charting, e.g. adding series, choosing the chart type depending on the data that's being displayed, etc. Each chart could look very different for each record in the underlying table.

When I choose a chart component to insert I have three choices: Graph Control Object, MS Chart Object and MS Office Chart Object.
My question is, which is the best to use given my need for programmatic control? Or indeed, should I be using another component that would be better suited?

Thanks in advance.

Are you using MSGraph to insert the graph object into your form? By inserting a MSGraph Instance in your form, you'll have more control over the elements of the graph you want to control:

- type
- series
- colors

etc.

Re: the printing, you may want to look at this: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;200551 - it details how to create a graph in Powerpoint  Good luck with that. I've gotten pretty far, controlling graph types, series, some colors, titles, and the like, but there aren't any manuals I've found for it.

Thanks for that useful info pendeb. I will probably head down the MSGraph route as it looks like it might cater for what I need.

Before I close this question, does anyone have any opinion on the best programmable graphing/charting component to include in MSAccess out of:

- MSGraph
- Graph Control Object (not  sure what this is - it's in my list of available ActiveX controls)
- MS Chart Object
- MS Office Chart Object
- any other control

Thanks.
