Chart List Data

  Asked By: Greggory    Date: Aug 22    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1756

Do you guys know of a Web Part or a function that will allow me to
create a bar or pie chart based off a list that you create in
sharepoint? I want to have a list that certain people update and it
will automatically populate that data into a graph on the home page.

Office Web Components have pivot charts, tables and views. It can do
exactly what you described.

That looks good but for some reason I don't see the new web  parts
after I installed it on the web server. Did I do something wrong or
do I need to import the web parts after installing the exe?

Also will this cause a big problem if a majority of our users are
still on Office XP?

Once installed, the web  parts are listed in the Virtual Server Gallery.
Did you look there yet?

There shouldn't be an issue with your Office XP users as these are web
parts used on the SharePoint server, not on the client.

I have been working non-stop the last 2
days getting this site up for our united way campain and I think my
brain is starting to disolve.

I created a new data  source by creating a new data retrieval service.
The problem is that it saves that connection in "My Data Sources" and
every time I access the page  it says "This Website uses a data
provider that may be unsafe. If you trust the Website, click OK,
otherwise click Cancel."

The connection I set up was directly to the list  in sharepoint. Is
there another way to do it to not have it under my connections and
possibly a connection on the web  server or somehting. I could be
doing it completely wrong.

Once again I can't find a guide over these web parts.

I have gotten that message anytime the list  with the data  is stored on
another site. Do you have the list and the chart  on the same web  site?
Does the connection string list the URL of the site (as opposed to maybe
a location on your local box)?
