Business Objects 4.0 Line Chart

Hi,

Need your help guys about line chart.

I have this sample data.

Customer Demand month1
Demand month2 Demand month3 Cust1 2000 200 4000 Cust2 3000 1000 4000 Cust3 5000 6000 4000 Total 10000 7200 12000

When I tried to transform it to line chart, the measures (Demand month1, 2 and 3) was automatically assigned in value axis.

The dimension (Customer) was for category axis.

Is there a way to change to what axis they will be assigned?

Also, tried the cross table, didn't work either.

Thanks

Dan

    switch to structure view of the chart and you can reposition the objects to change axis.

    Hi Dannilo,

    You can move measures from one axis to another using "View Structure". I would suggest to go through following Quick Tutorial developed by SAP, as it will explain all the features for charts which could be very helpful:

    Danilo,

    Right mouse click on your chart and take the option for Assign Data. You get to choose then what dimensions and value fields go where.

    With regards

    Hi,

    In addition to Gill yes you can assign data to line chart. But only measure will assign to value axis and dimesnion will assign to category axis.

    Best Ragards,

    Hardik / Arijit,

    I was not able to find the solution in the link.

    Don't know how to view structure of the chart. that I can't move anything inside the chart.

    If I try to move, the whole chart moves.

    I have tried these also:

         1. right clicking the chart

         2. viewing the report in design mode (Structure Only)

          3. using the document structure and filters on the left side of the window.

    Kindly help.

    Btw, I'm using ver4.0

    Thanks.
