1388291 - how to use the bubble chart for large data rows

Symptom

When we have a 100 series data in Xcelsius and we use the bubble chart to display the data, manually entering the data in series takes a long time. When Data by Range (either Rows or Columns) is selected to automatically get the data by series, we find that Xcelsius doesn't add all the 100 data series. Also the chart displayed isn't correct and the chart displays each bubble by the series name eg: Series 1, Series 2 and not by the actual series name shown in the data.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Use Bubble chart to display the 100 series data
  2. Use the data by Range feature in the bubble chart properties.
  3. Now under the Data by Range, select the Data in Rows and specify the range.
  4. The Chart doesn't populate the data correctly

Cause

Data used is in Range.

Resolution

  1. Use Bubble chart to display the 100 series data
  2. Use the data by Series feature in the bubble chart properties.
  3. The Chart populates the data correctly.
