    When I try to make a BAR chart , I get an error message The type of column with name ... is not numeric. The data source for the chart is retrieved from SQL 2005 using this query:

    SELECT DepartmentName, COUNT(*) AS departmentSummary FROM DimEmployee GROUP BY DepartmentName

    which give me 2 coloums - one contains department name, one contains the number of employee in department name (please see attach image).

    Hi vinh le,

    The screenshot shows numerous series, each one corresponding to a record in the query result. Actually, it  would be expected that ChartSeries correspond to a column where the each record's value in that column corresponds to a ChartSeriesItem. So in this case I would expect a single ChartSeries with DataYColumn set to departmentSummary. That should not trigger such error.

    Hi Vladislav,

    When databinding the chart, you can populate the chart.PlotArea.XAxis.DataLabelsColumn property with the name of the column, which holds the strings you need to show. E.g. looking at the image attached to the initial message in this thread, the value for DataLablesColumn should be "DepartmentName".
