Histograms in WebIntelligence

Every once and a while I run across a reporting technique that makes me say:  Wow – that was really clever.

In going through the new charting in BusinessObjects v4.0, I noticed that there was no histogram available.  After doing a Google search I found a great article by Alastair Gulland.

Alastair uses  a combination of straight-forward formulas and out-of-the-box thinking.  A brilliant combination.  He also introduces a way of making the histogram dynamic by using a Input Control.  Very nice.  It’s definitely worth checking out.

    It didn´t worked for me. When I try to turn the Range variable into dimension the Webi recalculate it and it returns one value only. Afterwards, when I deleted the first two columns from the table, it returns only one row and at range column it returns #MULTIVALUE.

    Any tip?
