Time Units

SAP Statistics displays a special time line for scaling reference axes where scale values along the axis are times or dates. The time line appears along the x-axis and is divided into an upper and lower half.

The Time units option in the Global Options dialog box allows you to select the time unit that is used in the time line.

When you choose a time unit, it appears as the unit of measure in the bottom half of the time line. The upper half is used to show a more inclusive time unit. For example, if you choose the Days time unit, the bottom part shows days and the top half shows months.

The time units you can choose are:

  • Minutes
  • 6-minute intervals
  • Hours
  • Days
  • Weeks
  • Cal. weeks (Calendar weeks)
  • Months
  • Quarters
  • Years

The Time Units option is available only in the Layout menu that appears for reference axis graphs with time line scaling.
