The example below demonstrates how to create a histogram chart and display the overflow bin for all points that are above a value defined by the HistogramSeriesOptions.OverflowValue property.

// Create a histogram chart and specify its location.
Chart chart = worksheet.Charts.Add(ChartType.Histogram, worksheet["B2:B21"]);
chart.TopLeftCell = worksheet.Cells["D2"];
chart.BottomRightCell = worksheet.Cells["K18"];

// Specify histogram series options.
var options = chart.Series[0].LayoutOptions.Histogram;
options.BinType = HistogramBinType.BinWidth;
options.BinWidth = 20;
// Create the overflow bin
// for all values that are above 90.
options.OverflowType = HistogramOverflowType.Fixed;
options.OverflowValue = 90;

// Specify the gap width.
chart.Series[0].GapWidth = 10;

// Add the chart title.
chart.Title.Visible = true;
chart.Title.SetValue("Exam Score Distribution");
