Editor's Note: This article's code has been updated to work with the final release of the .Net framework.
Reports are an integral part of many applications. Business activities like monthly sales, collected receivables, etc., are usually presented in reports. All to the good, then, if the reports can be presented in a graphical format - graphs allow us to take in data more quickly and spot trends more easily. In this article, we will take a simple but fully functional example of a business web application to create the scenario for displaying such reports.
Our application will be a 3-tier model. We will be using ASP.NET with C# code behind pages to accomplish our task, with a Visual Basic .NET middle tier component and SQL Server database.
