OpenOffice.org can display data as a chart, which creates graphical representations of numerical data in the form of bars, pie charts, lines or other elements. Data can either be displayed as 2D or 3D graphics, and the appearance of the chart elements can be individually adapted in a way similar to the process used for drawing elements.
Charts are not treated as independent documents in OpenOffice.org, but as objects that are embedded in an existing document.
A chart may contain its own data or may display data from the container document. For example charts in spreadsheets can display data obtained from the cell ranges and charts in text documents can display data obtained from writer tables.
