Walls Graph

This graph type represents data values as a set of walls, one wall for each column.

Each wall is divided into segments, and the edge between wall segments corresponds to a given row value. As a result, the number of segments in a wall is one less than the number of rows in the table of input values.

Select Options ® 3D options to call up the 3D Options dialog window.

The contents of the selection bars (in the Selection view) has no effect on whether the walls are displayed for rows or columns. To get walls for each row, instead of each column, do the following:

  1. Use the Mirror dimensions option to change the direction of the walls.
  2. Use the Dimension order option to swap the rows and the columns on the graph axes.

The Mirror dimensions option and the Dimension order option are described later in this section.

This graph type can depict negative values. You can set the width of the walls using the Object size indicator (in the 3D Options menu). The Number of sides indicator has no effect on the Walls graph type.

With the Walls graph type, you cannot always click on the 3D frame border (around the base of the graph) to request particular 2D graphs. (See "Using the Selection Bars" in Using the Selection View for more information.)
