7.5. Area Graphs

Applies to: @RISK 5.x–7.x

Can I smooth out a histogram to create an area graph, as I could in older versions of @RISK?

Yes, you can, though you have to go through a dialog box because you get more choices.

When you have the results graph displayed, follow this procedure:

  1. Right-click the graph and select Graph Options.
  2. Select the Curves tab.
  3. In the list at the left, select the histogram that you want to smooth if it's not already selected.
  4. Change Style to either Line or Solid. (The Automatic box will uncheck itself.)
  5. For Interpolation, select Spline Fit for a smooth curve or Linked Midpoints for a polygon. If you wish, you can also change color and style.
  6. Click OK and you will see your smoothed graph displayed as you wish.
