This article describes how to go from a table containing multiple variables:
To a state where you display the table in a stacked area chart:
You will need one of the following:
- A Multiway table. To create a multiway table select Table > Multiway from the toolbar. From the object inspector, go to Inputs and select the Rows, Columns, and Numeric inputs.
- A crosstab, which is a table that shows the relationship between two or more variables.
- A table of data pasted from a spreadsheet.
Method 1 - From the visualization menu
- In the toolbar, go to Visualization > Area > Stacked Area.
- From the object Inspector, you have 3 different methods for providing input data to the area chart. In the DATA SOURCE section, use one of the following:
- Output in 'Pages' - select a table output.
- Variables in 'Data' - select an individual variable from the Data Sets tree. Once an item is selected a second drop-down called Groups will appear in the object inspector. Here you can select a second variable to create a crosstab.
- Paste or Type data button - copy and paste data from Excel or some other source directly into a spreadsheet object in Displayr.
Method 2 - From an existing table
- Select the multiway table or crosstab on the page.
- From the object inspector, go to Visualization > Area > Stacked Area.
Important information about editing captions:
Visualization caption edits may not be retained when a visualization with a nested table is switched back to table. Normally, this only occurs when you double-click the caption and edit the text directly. As a workaround, we recommend using Properties > CAPTION > Edit caption to edit your captions.
