Charts and graphs often communicate the meaning of your data better
than columns of names and numbers do. (What’s the difference
between a chart and a graph? Actually, the two words mean the same thing,
so we’ll call them both charts from now on to save ink.) You can add a chart
to any report by using the chart control. Access 2013 has a feature called
data bars, which are little bar charts that can appear as part of any report.
Pulling Up a Seat at the Data Bar
You’ve probably heard of a bar chart, but who ever heard of a data bar?
Microsoft coined this term to describe little horizontal bars that you can
display on a report. If you display a bunch of data bars one below another,
you make a bar chart. Figure 3-1 shows a report with data bars showing the
number of each product sold. The data bar displays both a horizontal bar
and the quantity as a number.
