Grouped Bar graphs are Bar graphs in which multiple sets of data items are compared, with a single color used to denote a specific series across all sets. As with basic Bar graphs, both vertical and horizontal versions of Grouped Bar graphs are available.
Powering Grouped Bar graphs
Grouped Bar graphs require three columns or rows of data from your DataSet—one for series, one for categories, and one for values. If you have more than two series, each additional series is implemented as an additional bar. For information about value, category, and series data, see Understanding Chart Data.
In the Analyzer, you choose the columns containing the data for your Grouped Bar graph. For more information about choosing data columns, see Applying DataSet Columns to Your Chart.
For more information about formatting charts in the Analyzer, see KPI Card Building Part 2: The Analyzer.
The following graphic shows you how the data from the series, categories, and values columns in a typical column-based spreadsheet is converted into a vertical Grouped Bar graph:

Customizing Grouped Bar graphs
You can customize the appearance of a Grouped Bar graph by editing its Chart Properties. For information about all chart properties, see Chart Properties .
