    How do I create a graph using a third party control like Graphic Server or MSCharts in my report. On my report I get an ADO recordset and I want to use data from this recordset to plot the graph. There are multiple records in the recordset and I want just one graph.

    Is there any sample code available?

    The Custom Preview sample has a report called "Employee Sales" that demonstrates the MSChart functionality. The Custom Preview sample is included in the Program Files product directory when ActiveReports is installed. It's also accessible from the ActiveReports Start Menu group.

    Thanks I figured that out by doing a file search for "Chart" in the Samples folder. The activereports help ambiguously points to EmployeeSales report that does not exist. Saying CustomPreview in the help would make it easy to find the project file.
