Chart shows in designer, but not in InfoView or CMC
Posted on 2010-11-29
The Environment is Business Objects 12.1.
We have a report that has a chart graph displaying some information. When designing it using the application "Crystal Reports 2008" (also version 12.1), the chart shows up, and looks great.
When the report is saved, we're saving it under Enterprise, after authenticating.
The report is then available to be ran from InfoView (or CMC, if you wanted to do it that way). The report runs fine, without error messages. The data on the report is there, showing all the numbers that we want it to report on... but the graph is blank.
There IS a graph, it's in the report, but the bars are not being drawn into the graph. It's a mystery!
Why would the graph not be drawn/rendered? The only hint I have that's leading me nowhere is that when using the designer application, when I right-click on the chart and go to "chart options", the preview says "There is more than 400 data points, preview not available!". But if I refresh the report, the full-blown preview shows the chart. So I'm right now looking to see if there's something that looks into data points for rendering graphs on reports on demand.
