Cannot create a chart with date/times

Post by garybentley » Tue Nov 30, 2010 2:08 am

Hi,

I'm trying to create a line chart using date + time for the X axis however it truncates all of the dates to 00:00:00 and thus you do not get any differentiation between the times.

The attached test file shows the problem. There doesn't seem to be any way to "force" PlanMaker to separate out the dates.

Thanks,

Gary

I tried to reproduce this issue with your file but all dates are shown correctly in the chart. I work with rev. 591 (latest service pack) and attached an screenshot.

Yes but it's not what I want/expect. I would expect there to be multiple values along the X axis whereas there is a single one. If I have 9 values then I would want to see those as 9 points along the X axis not a truncated one for a single date, otherwise I've no way of plotting a chart across a set of date/times.

Please find attached a file with the fixed chart (it should contain what you probably want). There are some more problems with that file which our developers fixed (next service pack).

Thanks, it's close but of course I'd like to have multiple date/times across different dates as well. I'm trying to chart the change of something over the course of a number of days and see how it varies throughout those days.
