ExpressGraph is an easy-to-use business graphics program. Numbers
can be analyzed much more easily and quickly when they are displayed
in graphic form. ExpressGraph allows you to display numbers in a
variety of graphic formats. Then you can choose the display you like
best, and print your graph.
Here are some examples of how people use ExpressGraph:
* Graphing sales dollars and gross profit on a weekly basis, using
line graphs and bar charts.
* Displaying financial data graphically, to see how a company is
changing, or to compare two or more companies' financial status.
* Analyzing budgets and expenses with a pie chart: which expenses
are most significant? Which ones are increasing?
* Spotting trends amid a "sea of numbers". A graph can make a
strong trend easy to identify, while the same data may go
unnoticed when displayed numerically.
* Providing summarized data in graphic form to accompany financial
statements, for quick analysis and trend spotting.
Graphs created with ExpressGraph (GRAPH) can be displayed in one of
ten graphic formats, altered in various ways, and printed out. The
data for the graph can be saved on disk and reloaded later for further
changes or review.
And if you want to add some finishing touches to your graph, just move
the cursor around on the screen and enter additional text in small,
medium and large sizes.

If you are running ExpressGraph on a Tandy 1000 with a hard disk, Morrow
Pivot, Zenith 171, or similar computer, you may get the message: "Cannot
execute as child of BASIC". This happens because DOS does not always
initialize a certain memory location to a zero when it should be. To
remedy this problem, you can run a program called FIX.COM which is on the
Program disk. You only need to run it once each time you turn on or reboot
