grouped bar charts are Bar charts 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 charts, both vertical and horizontal versions of grouped bar charts are available.
Powering grouped bar charts
Grouped bar charts 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 chart. For more information about choosing data columns, see Applying DataSet Columns to Your Chart.
For more information about formatting charts in the Analyzer, see Visualization Card Building Part 2: The Analyzer.
