how to install hi-chart excel


  • Reports, presentations, and dynamic dashboards can be created using Hichert-IBCS charts and tables.
  • Chart-me charts and tables can be linked to Excel cell ranges. SAP Analytics For Excel cell ranges are also detected automatically.
  • These basic types are available:
    • Unstacked columns and bars
    • Scatter (point) and line charts
    • Stacked columns and bars
    • 100% stack
    • Waterfalls
    • Tables
    • Deviation chart types
    • Columns and bars for delta deviations
    • Waterfall columns and bars for cumulative deviations
    • Needle chart type for percent deviations
  • Charts and tables can be supplemented generically with any number of subcharts, data series and table columns.
  • Tables can also be supplemented with charts as deviation columns.
  • Charts can also be copied via the Windows clipboard and pasted elsewhere.
  • Chart-me object properties can be edited in a properties dialog.
  • All objects, such as pages, charts, subcharts, rows, columns, data points, highlights, … are displayed in a structure tree and can be selected there.
Unified visualization
  • Scenarios (AC, PL, FC) according to IBCS are integrated and applicable to data series and axes.
  • Previous years are presented brighter.
  • Headings can be displayed in standard widths for period types (years, quarters, months, …) or in user-defined widths.
  • Highlighting is available to focus the presentation, such as
    • Difference indicator,
    • Value indicator,
    • Scaling indicator,
    • Commentary references as well
    • custom colors for columns, bars, lines, points, and labels.
  • Common scaling can be easily implemented with scaling groups and scaling indicators.
  • A distinction is made between different measures that are commonly scaled.
  • Due to the font size concept, the display can be scaled larger or smaller only by changing the font size.
  • Labels can be separated into measures (values, volumes, shares) in thousands, millions, billions.
  • Multi-nested hierarchies for tables and charts (waterfalls) are possible..
  • Drilldowns in charts and tables are possible.
  • Hierarchies can be modeled freely as parent-child relationships.
  • Daten werden so dargestellt, wie sie in den Excel-Zellen angeordnet werden.
  • Es können auch Datenquellen zu externen Systemen definiert werden, die nicht im Zellbereich abgebildet sind. Das kann SAP BW oder IBM Cognos TM1 sein.
  • Objekte können dynamisch ineinander überführt werden, z.B.
    • Horizontale Achse (Zeit) in vertikale Achse (Struktur),
    • Diagramme in Tabellen,
    • Absolut- in Prozentabweichungen,
    • Szenarien (AC, PL, FC) können gewechselt werden,
    • Beschriftungen können ein- oder ausgeblendet werden
  • Die Anzahl Unterdiagramme, Datenreihen und Rubriken kann dynamisch durch die Elemente einer Dimension angepasst werden.
  • Definable click interactivity for interactive dashboard solutions.
  • Rows, columns, charts, subdiagrams, data points, and axis labels can all be defined as clickable and highlighted during hovering.
  • Click event handling can be programmed with scripting.
  • Integrated full Javascript scripting.
  • Scripting editor with intellisense, text completion and parameter display.
  • The entire object hierarchy of the charts and tables can be controlled by scripting.
  • Objects can be dynamically interlaced by scripting, e.g.
    • Horizontal axis (time) in vertical axis (structure),
    • Charts in tables,
    • Absolute in percentage deviations,
    • Scenarios (AC, PL, FC) can be changed,
    • Labels can be shown or hidden.
  • These formats can be exported:
    • JPEG images,
    • PDF files and
    • PowerPoint presentations.
  • All exports have an impressively high graphic (ready-to-print) quality.
    Here are examples:

  • With Chart-me projects can be exchanged between different platforms.
  • The exchange is easy via the clipboard or as a file.
  • Charts and pages can be exchanged between Chart-me projects in Excel, Web and SAP Lumira.
