Welcome to Visual Analytics for Aqua Data Studio. Visual Analytics lets you pull data from your Query Results into visualizations within Worksheets and Dashboards so you can save and share them with colleagues and customers. This Wiki Book contains all of the Visual Analytics documentation. See what the tool can do and explore the Visual Analytics Workspace to understand its environment and layout. Work through some examples and build views after learning how to connect to data sources.
Launching Visual Analytics: Learn how to launch Visual Analytics from within Aqua Data Studio.
Connect to Data: Learn how to connect to Data Sources and how to generate Data Extracts.
Build Views: Learn how to drag and drop Dimensions and Measures to build a view, with examples of different Chart Types.
Visualization: Learn how Visual Analytics' intelligent Visualization Menu can suggest and even generate charts for you based on what it detects in the Columns and Rows decks.
Visual Analytics Studio is divided into the Toolbar (containing the Menu and Toolbar Buttons), the Data Sources (the Data Pane), Decks (where you drag data source Dimensions and Measures to make Data Views) and the Data View. A single Workbook can contain many Worksheets, each with its own tab displayed at the bottom of the workspace. Each Sheet can display a Worksheet or a Dashboard (collection of Data Views from multiple Worksheets). You can resize a Sheet's decks and views by locating their handles and dragging them. You can also rearrange the decks of the Visual Analytics window by dragging their title bars into different locations.
The following table contains the toolbar icons and their descriptions.

The Menu contains the [File], [Data], [Worksheet], [Dashboard], [Analysis] and [Window] menus.
The [File] Menu allows creating a new Workbook, opening an existing Workbook, saving the current Workbook, saving as, exporting as a Packaged Workbook and closing the current Workbook.
A list of recently opened workbooks appears underneath the [Export Packaged Workbook] menu item to make finding and opening your previous work easy.
For pulling in and extracting data, the [Data] Menu allows you to connect to data, take action on the data sources you've already established, and refresh all of the extracts for your current Workbook.
Worksheets are the basis for all of Visual Analytics charts and views. The [Worksheet] Menu allows you to create new Worksheets, copy pivot grid to RTF and HTML formats, export Worksheet to Image, HTML, PDF or Excel, clear Sheets, show/hide Decks and duplicate Worksheet as pivot.
Dashboards are where you can display multiple worksheets contents at once in on one screen. The [Dashboard] Menu allows you to create new Dashboards, share color or shape legend highlight, export Dashboard to Image, HTML or PDF, clear Dashboards, or show a Dashboard title.
The [Analysis] Menu allows displaying/hiding Row Grand Totals, Column Grand Totals, swapping Rows and Columns, showing Data Labels, showing aggregate measures and trend lines, adding reference line, fixing map location, setting chart legend, filters and parameters properties, and creating calculated field.
The [Window] Menu allows setting rserve connection and log, swapping focus between the different Workbooks that may be open.
The Status Bar is at the bottom left of Visual Analytic's frame and displays a [Data] button when the Data Pane has been hidden by after clicking it's maximize/minimize button in the Data Pane title header.
