Now I discuss how to add an expression to a chart. So let's start with the procedure.

Step 1: Go to the properties of the chart.


Step 2: Select the expression tab in the properties window.

Then the properties window is opened. Then select the expression tab and select the add button for adding the expression to the chart.


Step 3: Edit expression window

Now after clicking on the add button this window will be opened and here we declare an expression and click on the OK button.


Step 5: Now after clicking on the Ok button you will see another expression that we declare in the edit expression.


Step 6: Now you can see in the chart another expression represented by a red line.

Step 7: If you select any data then it is shown with both the salary and empid because we added another expression as a total sum of empids.
