Suggestions about a graph control

P: n/a
Does anyone have any suggestions about a good third party graph control. The
one in Access seems confusing to use.

Is there a control that could be said to be an industry standard?

I've used the MSGraph object and it does a half decent job. What is your
problems with it? (Benefit: it comes with Office and doesn't require
additional setup).

I like Excel graphs for most simple tasks.

That is a great benefit and why I would prefer to stay with it. However, the
customer requested I make this enquiry after a couple of problems with
graphs over time.

A problem recently, and I posted this, is with the graph not setting the
minimum and maximum values correctly so the graph looked okay. Even though I
have this set to auto it doesn't change these so the graph is easier read.
By this I mean this graph has 4 series with value between 75 and 95. The
graph gets displayed with a minimum of 0 and a maximum of 100, what it sets
it to in design mode. The lines all get bunched together and it is hard to
distinguish each series. I can't set it to those values as sometimes the
range of values is different. It needs to deal with this automatically, but
doesn't.

I wanted to change this in code, once I determined the values, but can't
find a way to do that for an MDE.

This is in my other post 'Changing graph axis min max on report'.
