Excel would be your tool to make charts out of data in Excel spread sheets (you can probably read the db2 table into Excel if you've got the ODBC or a more sophisticated adapter). Use the Excel chart tool and then publish it as a web page using the "save as". If you want fully dynamic web charts from data anywhere... then you need tools like WebFOCUS (from Information Builders), Cognos, Crystal Reports, etc... those are Enterprise Business to Business Packages that produce reports and graphs on the web. rose ----------------- c:/dos c:/dos/run run/dos/run >> ----------------- > -----Original Message----- > From: thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist- > bounces at lists.evolt.org] On Behalf Of Joel D Canfield > Sent: Wednesday, December 29, 2004 5:20 PM > To: thelist at lists.evolt.org > Subject: [thelist] dynamic charting tools? > > What tools do you use to create online charts on the fly? > > Our environment is totally Microsoft, and I need to create a number of > charts from databased data.
