re: 2/16/2001 12:47 pm &#039;line graph vs bar chart creation ..." <BR>thanks Steve for your help. You gave a 6 item menu <BR>response to my question. item 4: "you may want to trigger<BR>the graph drawing by a button click or <BR>UserContol_Initialize" was exactly what I needed to know. I didn&#039;t have a clue otherwise.You were on my wave length (ie) seemed to know where I was coming from experience wise. good job, and much appreciated.<BR>joe miller
