What are Tally Marks
Tally marks keep track of numbers in groups of five. We add one similar line for each of the first four numbers within a group. The fifth number is represented by a diagonal line across the previous lines.
We have three styles of Tally Marks:
- Handwriting Marks
- Vertical Marks
- Horizontal Marks
Steps to Add Tally Marks
Start Visual Xtractor or Data Xtractor. Connect to a database. Create or design a SQL query. Run the query and check the results.
- Display and enable the Inline Chart query builder.
- Set a numeric column to one of the Tally Marks – Handwriting Marks, Vertical Marks or Horizontal Marks settings.
- The numeric values will now be replaced with their graphic display in tally marks.
Tally Marks Demo Query
Look for the ready-to-use Tally Marks generated query under the Queries > Demo Queries > Inline Charts > Images folder. Click on the “add demo queries” command link, if not there.
- Adding Tally Marks in Data Xtractor or Visual Xtractor is fast and trivial: select on a numeric column one of the Handwriting/Vertical/Horizontal Marks settings, to display dynamic images with tally marks instead.
