Is there anyway to set the overview use results as different pie and column charts?! I could see these charts in the openstudio results of my simulation but after I changed the input to see the impact, the second reports just give them in a table view format.

@FN, based on your comment in @Avi's answer, my guess is that you didn't have an internet connection last night, but that you do today. The charts in the OpenStudio results measure use dimplejs and will only show up when you have an internet connection. When you are offline you can still see the tables but not the charts.

In order to see the OpenStudio results report (The colorful one with all the charts) and not only the default EnergyPlus results, you need to download and activate the OpenStudio Results Measure as described in this post.

If you did that already then all you have to do is select the report type in the upper left corner of the Results Summary Tab as depicted in that picture: image description

In order to activate the OS Results measure for that run you need to go to the Measures tab, then on the right side select the lIbrary tab>Reporting>QAQC now drag the OpenStudio Results into the Reporting Measure window on the center of the measure Tab and you are done.

After the run you can find both of the reports not only in the Results Summary Tab but also in the folder with the name of your model under subfolder ../run/ddd_OpenStudio Results. Where the dots represent the name of your model and ddd represent three digits. The file of the EnergyPlus report will be in the run folder named eplustbl. Both files are HTML format.

@Avi : Thanks, but like I said my new openstudio report Only has "view table" to review annual and monthly use data, while, the first report ( before changing few input and running OS again) the reports had both charts + tables! I guess I have to export the results into the excel, but I was not sure there is no other way to set and see those charts automatically in OS report again.
