Introduction

The Bar Chart displays data of one or more series as bars:

By changing the chart typ to Horizontal Bar Chart the chart changes to the specified type. No other changes, besides optionally changing the Number Formatter Y-Axis settings to the Number Formatter X-Axis settings and vice versa:
Horizontal Bar Chart

Expected Data and Graph Designer

The Bar Chart expects data in a two (or more) column format such as:
Date
Revenue
Cost
23 January
38
24
24 January
39
24
25 January
40
24
26 January
40
24
In the Graph Designer you can then select the column you want to use for your x-axis (for the Horizontal Bar Chart the selected x-axis will be the y-axis):
Graph Designer X-Axis
Hence, the x-axis column does not need to be the first column. However, for consistency purposes it is recommended to always use your first column for the x-axis.
For each column, besides the one used by the x-axis one bar will be displayed.
