SAP BO Analysis - Charts
To show the trend in your data, you can add charts to make the analysis more interactive. Charts are used for graphical representation of data. You can emphasize on the business performance indicators of your data.

Crosstabs and charts are linked in the form of analysis and sub-analysis. First a crosstab is added in the form of a new analysis in the workspace and the chart is added as a subanalysis to the main analysis. When the data is changed, both the analysis and subanalysis gets changed with data.
To add a chart to your analysis, navigate to the Insert tab at the top of the screen and select the required chart type in the workspace.
Adding Data to a Chart
When you select a chart, it is added to the right or below the existing component. It is also possible to add multiple charts in a single analysis that can focus on multiple areas.
You use a crosstab for main analysis and chart for the sub-analysis to focus on certain points.
Note − It is also possible to unlink or disconnect a chart sub-analysis from its current analysis, converting it to a new, separate analysis.
