Description 7qia0tp02 2014-08-17 00:00:58 UTC
We should be able to create histograms of a column of data just by selecting that column and creating a chart.  The bin number and log/linear spacing of bins, etc can be set in the plot options window.  Currently it's possible to make histograms using the FREQUENCY() command, but it requires extra plot-only things being added to the spreadsheet.

Please, could you elaborate a bit? I use histogram charts and I never used FREQUENCY() command.

Set status to NEEDINFO. Please set it back to UNCONFIRMED once you have provided requested informations. Thank you for your understanding.

Best regards. JBF

Can you please describe how to do it without FREQUENCY() command?

For example, if data is 

1
2
3
11
12
13
45

and the bins are 0-10, 11-20, 21-30, etc, then the histogram would have a height of 

 0-10: 3
11-20: 3
21-30: 0
31-40: 0
41-50: 1
51-60: 0

Ok, with complete information it is easier to understand what you mean. For many users who are not statisticians histogram could be understand as bar chart.
Valid enhancement request.

Changed source and target: this enhancement explain what is expected, while bug 74665 is very cryptic.
