Beware that your counters start per default at 1. If you set your counters to start at 0, your chart rows will not match the number of rows of your global counter.

Add a new counter for charts

You can also create a new counter to link to your chart. Make sure you select the correct part of your project again. If you don't need a highlighter for your columns, you don't need to link a counter. Counters for columns will automatically reset once the number of columns is reached.
