Overview

You can use the mini chart in table and value components, provided that the data is formatted as a comma separated list. If it is not, you can format it using the JOIN function or the CONCAT function (see below). The example shows the raw values in addition to the 3 mini chart formats:

To create a comma separated list (JOIN Function)

If the values from your data source are in adjoining cells (A1 | A2 | A3), then you can use the JOIN function to create a comma separated list.

JOIN ("A1:A3") –> (1, 2, 3)

To create an array of comma separated lists, wrap the JOIN function in an ARRAY function

ARRAY (JOIN ("A1:A3"), JOIN ("B1:B3"), JOIN ("C1:C3"))

To create a comma separated list (CONCAT function)

If the values in your data source contain an unbounded range, such as A:A, then you can use the CONCAT function.

CONCAT ("A:A") –> (1, 2, 3, 4, …)

To create an array of comma separated lists, manually insert a comma between data selections.

CONCAT ("A:A", ",", "B:B", ",", "C:C")
