      Help with Graph Calculation

      Post

      I'm trying to create a graph that totalizes the amount (field) spent in each category (field) and have that display on the X-axis.  So I assume I need a calculation to go in the X-Axis but I don't know how to write that.  I'd also like to limit the graph only to expenses (negative amounts).  Any help is greatly appreciated!

          Without much to go on the simple answer is when designating the x axis you can use a calculation to only show if it is negative.  Remembering the Y axis, unless you first do a search to eliminate the positive values you will get a blank space.  If I understand you correctly the best approach would be to Find only negative values and then use them to graph your results.

            When creating a chart where each point on the chart is a value computed from a group of records in your found set, specify a summary field for your Y-series value, select the "summarized values" data source option and be sure to sort to group your records into the groups you need for your chart.
