Clustered Bar Charts

You can change your chart perspective so that the Z-axis data extended in the third dimension is shown as clusters displayed in the foreground. This charting option is useful when Z-axis bars are hard to distinguish in standard bar formats.

You can use clustered bar charts to juxtapose categories in one label item. For example, use clustered bars to compare stores of different types. Alternatively, cluster bars can be used to compare two different value items, such as Amount of Sales and Units Sold.

*

Note   You can only display clustered bar charts in vertical format.

To cluster bars representing divisions in label items (Z-Categories pane for values):

  1. Select Vertical Cluster Bar from the Chart drop-down list.
  2. Drag a fact item from the Catalog pane to the Z-Categories pane and label items to the X-Categories and Y-Facts panes in Outliner.

To cluster bars representing two different value items (Y-Facts pane for values):

  1. Select Vertical Cluster Bar from the Chart drop-down list.
  2. Drag two fact items to the Y-Facts pane and a label item to the X-Categories pane.
