Click the Home | New Graph | Statistical | 3D Vertical Histogram or Home | New Graph | Statistical | 3D Horizontal Histogram command to display data in groups or bins. Each 3D bin represents a range of values on the X axis. The height of a bin represents the number of data points that fall within that bin’s range. If there is one Y value for each X value in the data set, use the bar chart rather than the histogram.
Click the 3D Vertical Histogram or 3D Horizontal Histogram buttons to create 3D histograms.
