Hi,
I'm creating a windows application in vb.net and I'm using a Pivot table to access a local cube(sales.cub) and a chartspace object to view the graph.

My question is how to populate the chartspace in VB.NET. In other words, how do I bind the chart to the Pivot table, so that each time the pivot table changes the charting objects changes too.

Thank you.

Sukhdev.

looking at this KB you can use an xml file as an intermediate strucutre for the datastorage

source : http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;315695

couldn't find a direct way of sharing the data between the 2 components through a  datasource property on both but maybe someone else will

Hi guys... I've found the solution...

Let me share it... maybe someone else might be looking for the same thing.

There's a slight difference in binding charts to pivot table in vb6 and vb.net

Below is the solution for binding a chartspace to a pivot table in VB6
In VB6
--------
myChartspace.Datasource = myPivotTable


Below is the solution for binding a chartspace to a pivot table in VB.NET
In VB.NET
-----------
myChartspace.Datasource = myPivotTable.GetOcx


Reason: In VB6 the datasource property of the myChartspace has a default value as myPivotTable
Whereas, in VB.NET, the OWC component DOES NOT support early binding, so therefore there is no default property for the DataSource.

We must manually use GetOcx method, to return the object that reprsents the ActiveX Control.

Cheers!!
Sukhdev.
