Summary of Graphing Capabilities

This section summarizes what graph images are possible with input data formatted as described in the section Data Input Tables and How They Are Interpreted.

For data in multiple tables (multiple pages):

  • In a 3D graph:

You can represent all the data at once (for all pages) by using a stacked graph.

You can display all values for a particular page. The name of that page is appended to the main title for the graph.

You cannot represent less than a full page of values in a 3D graph.

  • In a 2D graph:

You cannot represent all the data at once (all pages) in a 2D graph.

You can represent all values from a particular page; the page name appears as part of the main title of the graph. This graph must be either a stacked or side-by-side graph.

You can represent all values in a given row or column, when they all occur on the same page. The name of the page occurs in the main title. The name of the row or column appears as a sub-title.

For data in a single table (with rows and columns):

  • In a 3D graph:

You can represent all rows and columns simultaneously. You cannot use a stacked graph, since the data contains only a single page.

  • In a 2D graph:

You can represent all rows and columns at once by using a stacked or side-by-side graph type.

You can represent values from a single row or column. The name of the row or column appears in the title for the graph.

For data in a single list (a table with only rows):

  • In a 3D graph:

You cannot generate a 3D graph for data values occurring in a list.

  • In a 2D graph:

You can represent the entire list of numbers.
