Under SharePoint 2010, I'm looking into using the Chart Web Part but it is missing.

According to the site http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/sp2010devtrainingcourse_developingbiapplicationslab_topic2.aspx it appears that I should enable SharePoint Server Enterprise Site features which is already enabled.

However, we only have SharePoint Standard.

We obviously aren't able to enable Enterprise without a license, so I'm curious if anyone knows why the option to enable Enterprise features is available if it doesn't actually do anything?

Should this actually do something, or is it just a placeholder that doesn't work until an Enterprise license is entered?

  • Intriguing, while I don't have an answer for this, I'm guessing you may have been activated under enterprise in a previous life, or that the site was migrated from an enterprise install to a standard install. My take is the enterprise features would never work anyways.

    That's probably it. We went from 2007 enterprise to 2010 standard.

Chart Web Parts are only available with enterprise.

If you are looking for a free solution, Amrein offers a free Google Chart Web Part. http://www.amrein.com/apps/page.asp?Q=5749

I have experience using a few of the 3rd party charting tools for SharePoint, my favorite are the charts offered by Collabion.
