Saved Charts

Once you have saved a Chart:

  • it will appear in the Queries display in the Database Explorer window. You can easily view all the charts that you have developed and saved
  • you can define a Chart as a Favorite
  • the data behind the chart can be refreshed by right-clicking the chart and selecting Refresh
  • a saved Chart is contained within a file. This includes the definition of the Chart plus the query that was run to populate the data. Chart files can be manipulated like normal files - you can move them around on your machine or distribute them to your colleagues. A chart can operate both as snapshot of your data at a particular time, and as a pre-built query that you can deploy to other people.
  • charts can be created in an unattended batch script
