Hi Mark,

First of all thanks for your great work in PHPExcel library.

I have a set of complex excel files having complex XY scatter charts inside.I need to render these charts as pictures.

An example of this kind of chart is attached with name 'scatter_complex_chart1.png' in issue tracker list.

I wish just to know if PHPExcel is able, at this moment of development, to render these complex charts, using jpgraph library.

(note I tried to render these charts but results are bad; I am not sure the reason is on PHPExcel side or in jpgraph side; errors becoming from PHPExcel side I will try to show in separated threads here)

Thanks in advance,

Is that a scatter chart? It looks more like some form of timeline to me, and I'd have no idea how to create it in MS Excel at all, let alone using PHPExcel

Thanks for the answer, Mark

It is identified by PHPExcel as scatter chart. Also, PHPExcel it's strong enough to read it and to pass it data to the jpgraph and rendered picture it's closed to the chart.
