## Separate by Factor

SeparateByFactor() will separate the chart into a grid of subcharts based on the bar groups. It takes in an integer as the number of columns in the grid. If empty, it results in a single-column grid.

Unfortunately, there are some limitations to the usage of this function. The Separate by Factor function can be used with a certain amount of columns and/or factors. And that number is unique to each chart. The following chart displays some of the possible combinations of factors and/or columns. It has the column input with numerical and nonnumerical data and the factor input columns.

And that number is unique to each chart. The following chart displays some of the possible combinations of factors and/or columns. It has the column input with numerical and nonnumerical data and the factor input columns.
