Reporting Services & Charting

February 11, 2004 22:56 by matthaw

I'd like to proclaim that I HATE the charting capabilities in SQL Reporting Services.  I spent about an hour trying to figure out how to do a basic scatter graph with a very small set of data.  Well, after trying about 50 gazillion ways, I cannot get the graph to work.  Just to make sure I wasn't crazy, and actually knew the data I had could be graphed...I copied the  data into an Excel spreadsheet.  After that I inserted a chart, and 2 minutes later I had a scatter graph the way I wanted it.

Why is it so freaking hard in Reporting Services? Why can't they have an easy to use tool like Excel?  Why did I spend so much time to get a chart that didn't work?  I just don't understand it.  I hate it! ARRH!

Okay, now that I'm done ranting & raving, does anyone know how to properly chart things using SQL Reporting Services?

Look for the hands on labs for Reporting Services. I followed it and I could indeed make a graph very simple with Reporting Services
