In the chart control, right click for properties. There is a chart type property. What's in that, are your only options.

If you need more, google for the Dundas Reporting Services Chart controls. It's not cheap though!

FYI There is a Database Reporting topic under MS SQL 2005 which is more relevant for RS questions.

We actually have Dundas...unforunateley Dundas doesn't support stacked bar - Pareto, already contacted their tech support.

With the new era of mobile computing, smartphones and tablets, wireless communications and cloud services, the USDA sought to take advantage of a mobilized workforce and the blurring lines between personal and corporate computing resources.

Bummer!

As an aside, how have you found the full Dundas control? Is it much better than what ships with RS (which I know is Dundas as well).

To tell you the truth, I would do it a dis-service in critique, I rarely if ever use it.  A colleague of mine deals with report development, I'm more back-end, I was only stepping in to see if there was a code based solution I could offer.  I will ask him though and post his response to get you some accurate feedback.

Hey Chris,
  I was actually able to create a Pareto with Reporting Services 2005 using the RunningValues() function and an empty Series Group, unfortunately I'm still unable to create this same chart with a stacked bar as it is creating 3 pareto lines as I expected it would since a stacked bar requires two Series groups.  If you have any ideas please let me know.

Hi Ryan, the chart control is quite weak and there really is nothing you can do about it.
I was hoping that the full Dundas control was going to be much better.

I'll keep my eyes peeled if there any other 3rd party add-ons.

Cheers
Chris
