I have a set of data as follow:

set     type     value
1         D          6
1         T           7
1         B           9
2         D           10
2         T            11
2         B           15
3         D           20
3         T           21
3         B           28

I want to use "set" as x-axis, draw 3 lines based on "type" and "value" as y-axis
Which Crystal Reports chart can I use and how to do it? Thanks!

I haven't done much with charts, but I think a regular line chart may do.  You presumably want one chart per report, in the report header or footer.  You'd add the Set field under "On change of" to make that the X-axis, and then _also_ add the Type field under "On change of", to get a separate line for each Type.  Add the Value field under "Show value(s)" to make that the Y-axis.  If you only have one value for each Set and Type, you can check the "Don't summarize" option (although if there's only one value, I don't know if it matters one way or the other).

 That was all based on CR 10.  If you're using a different version, the options may be a bit different, but they'll probably be similar.

That seems to be the way to do it.

Here is a quick sample in CR 2008
