Using a bullet chart

A bullet chart is in fact a bar or column chart with a lot of extra options. It can serve as a replacement for gauges and meters. Besides visualizing a data point as bar and column charts do, a bullet chart is able to show a target and two or more qualitative ranges. These ranges can indicate whether a value can be considered bad, satisfactory, good, and so on.

This recipe will show you how to configure a bullet chart. SAP BusinessObjects Dashboards has two bullet chart components: horizontal and vertical. Both components have exactly the same configuration options and work in the same manner. This recipe will use the horizontal bullet chart.
