How to Weight the Entire PowerPoint Report Data

While with the Global Weight function, you can apply the same weight variable to many charts (displayed on the same slide) at once. It will save your time by automatically updating multiple charts in your PowerPoint presentation with one click.

Note* The Global Weight variable will be applied to the charts created from the same dataset.
