Base has no charting capabilities, but Calc does. Open a Calc spreadsheet and press F4 to open the Data Sources dialog. You can select tables, views and queries from registered Base databases and drag the data onto a spreadsheet. Select the spreadsheet data and then select Insert>Chart.

Calc is a very good report engine.

The report builder extension provides charts in reports.
