Combo Chart

The Combo Chart is versatile charting type, which allows you to specify a series type per each values data grouping, which is displayed in the combo chart area. The series type needs to be manually specified per each values data grouping and is by default set to Bar with Clustered group mode.

The combo chart has only one setting - its subtype, which defines the chart dimension types and also determines whether the series displayed in the combo have explicit or automatic X positioning:

Sub Type

X Dimension Type

Z Dimension Type

Data Requirements

Description

Categorical

Categorical

Series defined values

Each series defines a set of values.

XY Scatter

Series defined values
X

Besides the series defined values, each series data point has an additional X coordinate at which it is positioned.

For example, if you want to display a bar and area combo chart follow these steps:

  1. Ensure that you have two values data groupings.
  2. Open the Chart Properties Dialog.
  3. In the Chart > Chart Areas > Chart Type list box - select the Combo item.
  4. In the Data > Groupings > Values list box - double click on the first values data grouping. In the Values Grouping editor set Series Type to Bar.
  5. In the Data > Groupings > Values list box - double click on the second values data grouping. In the Values Grouping editor set Series Type to Area.
The Series Type combo box is visible in the Values Grouping editor only if the selected chart area - chart type is set to Combo. If you do not see the Series Type combo box, then the selected chart area - chart type is not set to Combo.

Depending on the currently selected series type the Values Data Grouping editor will automatically update the Data tab (which shows the supported data point values for the current series type) and the Options tab (which shows options specific to each series type). The following table summarizes the topics you can read for the specific data/options for each series type:

Series Type Topic

Float Bar Float Bar Series
Area Area Series
Smooth Area Smooth Area Series
Line Line Series

Step Line Step Line Series
