Interpolating Values

Select Options ® Global options to call up the Global Options dialog window.

The Interpolate option causes SAP Business Graphics to generate and display values for rows or columns where values are missing from the data.

Data values are also interpolated for zero values if you have simultaneously turned on the Suppress zeros option (see the above figure).

The interpolation takes the average of the two neighboring values. If a missing (or zero) value has no neighbor on one side, the graph simply stops with the existing neighbor.

There is some interplay between the Interpolate and the Suppress zeros options. See "Suppress Zeros," earlier in this section for more information.

This option applies only to the Lines graph type (for 2D graphs) and the Walls, Wedges, Strips, and Surface graph types (for 3D graphs).
