Line charts display information as a series of data points joined with straight lines. They are usually used to demonstrate a comparison of data values over time, for example, the sales of a product or the number of visitors to a website.
If the variation between data values is quite small, a line chart may be easier to read than a bar or column chart. Line charts are also easier to read where there are a number of data categories to compare.
Zero values, at the end of a data set, are not displayed on Line charts. Handling zeros or no data explains how Anaplan deals with null and zero values when generating charts
