Vertical Bar Charts in the Report Builder

Vertical bar charts display data in a series of bars that run from the bottom to the top of the chart. Vertical bar graphs use the x-axis for labeling categories, while numeric data is measured along the y-axis. This type of chart is useful if one axis does not have numeric data.

Drop Y-Axis

In a vertical bar chart, the y-axis includes numeric information, such as the number of client computers or jobs in each status.

Drop X-Axis

In a vertical bar chart, the x-axis includes text-based categories, such as client computer names or job statuses.
