Hello, not exactly sure where I should post this on the forum,

Basically, I would like to include charts on my website. I really do not know where to start, but to give an idea of what I want, consider those charts you find on yahoo.finance: they chart the progress of stocks+shares. I would like also a little interactivity - for example, the ability to change to a different time frame (6 months, 1 year, 5 years etc).
The chart must also be able to take its data from a database, because the database+chart must update twice a day.

Any thoughts?

There's some charts I've seen that are .swf files that gets data from xml.
A google search for 'flash piechart' should give you many options. What environment (php, asp etc) are you going to run this from?
