Hi everyone,

I have four sets of data in Microsoft Excel that I would like to plot on a Bar Chart or similar to provide a means of comparison. However I have 719 columns of this data. What I would like to do is to have an 'active' Bar Chart which cycles through the 719 columns of the four sets of data. 

My thoughts are that I should be able to find software that will enable me to produce a Bar Chart that is capable of being set up to cycle through the data and thus provide an 'active' Chart.

Is there a way of using Matlab or Simulink to do this?, or is there an alternative software you suggest that would be better suited?

I hope this makes sense if not please let me know and I will try to clarify, any help with this would be much appreciated.

Many Thanks,
