Create A Graph Classic

To create a BAR GRAPH, you must supply a value for (each) bar. It is also a good idea to provide: a name for each bar, title of graph (60 characters maximum), and title of x and y axis. Default options are set for (although you can change them): number of bars (1-31), min and max values, color of bars (gray scale choices available), 3D option, graph direction, graph size (TIP: more bars display best in larger graph sizes), background color, and image file type (if you are using an older browser or are having difficulty seeing the image select jpeg.)

First select the number of bars you would like to display, then complete the rest of the information below and, be sure to use no more than 7-digit values (between 1 and 9999999) for the best results (decimal points count as a digit).
