If you want to change the default type of graph that ACL generates, enter an appropriate SET GRAPH command on the command line.

To change the graph type:

  1. Click Graph Type .

    If the results you are graphing contain a single item, ACL dims the stacked and 3-D layered options. If the results contain multiple items, stacked and layered options are available but pie chart options are unavailable.

  2. Click one of the available graph formats.
  3. Click OK.

    To separate the sections of a pie graph, right-click on a section and select Explode Pie.
