The Create > Charts menu contains options for creating charts and visualizations.

The Create > Charts > Chart option creates a new item in your Report which is similar to a table in that you choose which questions should be used to create the chart. Using the Show data as menu above a table will also convert an existing table into a chart. For more information on formatting options, click here, and for information on the chart types that are available, see this page.

The options in Create > Charts > Visualization instead require you to link them up to an existing table of numbers that are to be visualized. The input could also be a Q Table, but it could also be tabular data from an R Output, and there is also the option to simply paste in a set of numbers that you want to display. All options in this menu are created with R (RLogo.png).

Both charts and visualizations export as images. If you would like to export editable Excel-style charts, you should instead create a Table, and export it to Office using one of the Excel Chart format options.
