For Scatter chart both x and y axis should be expressions, but date is a dimension.


Instead of using Scatter you can go for either Bar or Line chart..

Hello..

I got the solution, we can create a combo chart wherein in the expression tab select Symbols (any symbol as per your choice) and it works perfect.

Thanks for all your support.

Hi,

Did you ever find a solution for this?

I too am looking for a way to have a date value on the x-axis....

not quite a new thread, but a solution might be:

table1:

LOAD RecNo() as ID,

    Timestamp(Today()-Rand()*10) as Date,

    Ceil(Rand()*100) as Value,

    Ceil((Rand()+0.5)*100) as Momentum

AutoGenerate 30;

hope this helps

regards

Hi Marco,

This really looks like the solution I need - although I can't get it to fit my data.  I've attached a sample app where I am trying to achieve this in a GridChart (which probably isn't the best solution).  I need the month_year on the x-axis, the minimum cost on the y-axis and the size of the bubble on relating to the QTY purchased...

If you selected 'Gilmour D' as a salesperson, I would like to be able to see an equal spread on the y-axis :

where the values would start on £14 going up in .50 increments £14.00, £14.50, £15.00 upto £19.50....

Is this possible?

Thanks again for any help/advice.

Phil
