Whether it can be switched depends on the data cycle selected at the ① ”Data Change” menu and the indicator currently selected at the ⑦ Indicator selection menu. When selecting multiple indicators, if all the indicators do not have a “✔” in the “Data holding status for each indicator linked to the chart” table as shown in ② Chart title labels, switching will not be possible.
