Not in standard Notes (you can create a bar chart, using some tricks)

You could use an applet to do this, or create an Excel sheet and embed that in a document ...

You can also embed a Java-applet that does the drawing/charting for you. Works like a charm.

In one of my view, I have 2 columns.
1 column is Category which consists of Daily, Others, Trouble, Project, Misc, Upgrade.
2nd column is a total of how many cases for Daily, Others, Trouble, Project, Misc, Upgrade.

I would like to show this data in a bar chart whereby the x-axis is the category and y-axis is the no. of cases.

Thus, how am i going to implement?
Pls advise?

In any case, you have to implement it using a form with a lot of code in the QueryOpen or PostOpen event. That code will get the data of the view, process it and place it in the graph. Ask Tom how to do this in Excel (I dunno :-$). The Java-applet you'd have to construct yourself, unfortunately.
