    I am trying to create a preference list of 11 items that can be charted or made into some visual report. Orderable list will not chart.

    If the orderable list is not able to be made into a chart, is there some other type of widget or type of survey question that I can use that is able to be tracked and charted. Thanks.

    Since the orderable list does not have specific selected answers, it cannot be properly displayed in a chart.  It would be rather difficult to display the order in which the list was sorted compared to the sort order of other entries.  The chart would end up being rather confusing. 

    Radio button fields, check boxes, text boxes, number fields, generally any fields that have a definitive answer would work in a chart.  You could use a set of number boxes and have the user rank each choice from 1-11.  Something of that nature would be better suited for creating reports of your data.
