Add chart items from a data source
After you find information of interest in a data source, you can add corresponding items to your chart. The new information extends the intelligence that the chart contains, and you can use the analysis capabilities of Analyst's Notebook on the information.
Some data sources provide the facility to configure the appearance of data source items when they are charted.
If the item from the data source has the same database identity as an item that is already present on the charting surface, then a duplicate item is not added. Depending on the data source, Analyst's Notebook adds properties to the chart item, and updates the data that is stored in other properties. Some data sources provide the facility to select which chart item properties Analyst's Notebook copies data to.
