How Do I Chart This in Microsoft Access?


I have the following simple data:

Company              Monthly Sales              Percentage OF Total
-------------               --------------------
Bakery                  $50,000                       0.50
Carpenter              $25,000                       0.25
Plumber                $25,000                       0.25

I would like to create some sort of a graph or chart in Microsoft
Access that will show all three fields.  When I try to create a pie
chart or column chart it just gives me either the "company and the
monthly sales" or the "company and the percentage of total sales".

I would like to display all three columns of data on a graph of some

How do I do that?  Seems it should be quite simple but I can't see it.

Can someone point me to an example online or send  me some code?

Access to a series, when it is assigned to an empty range

So, if I assign the series to a range with values I can change the series to another range afterwards. But if I once have assigned a series to an empty range I do not have access to the chart series any more. The error message is:"unable to set the values property of the series object" O...

On the chart, format these green, red, and grey respectively. Now, go back and change the static values to formulas similar to this: =IF(B2>A2,B2,NA()) =IF(B2<A2,B2,NA()) =IF(B2=A2,B2,NA()) If ...

Camera destroys Charts
Dear Group, you have a chart (no matter which type) and you create a camera (Picture Link) which shows the chart by referencing to the range behind the chart. Then you print (or print-preview) the camera. Under certain conditions you can see that the plot area of the chart looses height with each print. This happens when the chart is smaller than a critical minimum size. The minimum size seems to depend on the default printer driver. This effect can be reproduced with Excel 2003. Has anyone experiences with this ? Thanks in advance, Holger. Holger, This bug has existed in Excel for m...

How do I change the ruler to inches in access
It's generally considered polite to put your question in the body of the post, rather than strictly post a subject. As well, details such as what version of Access and of Windows can be useful. That having been said, Access gets its unit of measure from the operating system. The only way to have the ruler in Access be in inches is to choose U.S. rather than Metric for the Measurement Units in Regional Settings in the Control Panel. -- Doug Steele, Microsoft Access MVP http://I.Am/DougSteele (no private e-mails, please) "Johnotaker" <

Lines on chart don't correlate to values being charted
I'm having a strange problem with a chart done in Excel 2003 (on a workbook prepared by someone other than myself, so I'm not sure of all that has happened with it before.) There are three lines drawn on the chart, and one is normal - that is, the line drawn correlates to the values being charted. But the other two lines don't correlate to the numbers they should be charting. When you hover over these two lines and it tells you the values for the data point, the data point values are fine - but that isn't what the line is drawing! For example, one series is charting ...
