This is for a monthly inforgraphic update. I've set the document up with a bar chart and pie chart for 8 services each with 5 points of data that will change month over month. Not a fan of working with XMLs.

For bar graphs and pie charts, you'll need to save your CSV file as a text (.txt) file. Then you can import the data for the bar graph and again for the pie chart. If the pie chart doesn't look right, as in it makes multiple circles in sizes relative to the data, then you'll want to click the transpose button in the Graph Data window. Here's more information on graphs in Illustrator.
