I have been a developer since version 1.0 uin 1992. With all the different apps I have designed and data analysis, I have only used Graphs and Charts in two of them - one was 97 and we used DDE - and the graphs were in excel using a link to Access data, the other was using the MS-Gragh object - which was fairly simple. When the Object Web Components came out - I was blessed by not having any development specs that called for charts.

My question is - now that I have a evolved a system that made it's way to upper management - the need for graphs and charts has reared it's ugly head.

Is there a 3rd part add-in that makes dahboarding with graphs and chart representation easy yet professional looking - not opposed to buying the right application.

thank you in advance for reading this post.
