Output a Query Column

Hi,
     I've created a crosstab query which uses a Date field as column headings. I was able to output the column names OK using listgetat(theQuery.ColumnList,1). However, I am unable to output the data for the list. Here's my query:

<cfquery name="crossTMResults" datasource="TM">
     TRANSFORM Count(ACTIVITIES.ACTIVITYID) AS CountOfACTIVITYID
     SELECT ACTIVITIES.TM_RESULTS
     FROM ACTIVITIES
     WHERE ACTIVITYDATE BETWEEN #createodbcdatetime(StartDate)# AND #createodbcdatetime(theenddate)#
     GROUP BY ACTIVITIES.TM_RESULTS
     PIVOT ACTIVITYDATE;
</cfquery>

I've tried using evaluate, but I get an error, for example that says that it doesn't know what crossTMResults.7/16/02 is. I also tried crossTMResults.[7/16/02] and a few others. Does anyone know how I can specify the query column I want the data for?

TIA,

:) David

what does it give you when you output like this?

<cfoutput query="crossTMResults">
#TM_RESULTS#
</cfoutput>

CFXPERT,

I get the row values:

Bad Number,Voice Mail,No Answer,No longer with Company, etc.

anandkp,

There is no column in the query results for ACTIVITYDATE. The only columns are, for example:

"7/16/02","7/17/02","7/18/02","TM_RESULTS"

The question is how to refer to the columns that have a date as the column name queryname.7/16/02 doesnt work.
In that regard, how do you refer to columns that have a space in them? If you have a field called "Num Employees" you couldn't use queryname.Num Employees. How would you refer to that. Your help is, and will be, greatly appreciated.

Hi there,

I doubt if u can create columns with spaces in b/w them
but ne-ways if u have them - the u can try this.

<cfset spacefield = "num employees">

<cfset x = Evaluate("VALUELIST(crossTMResults.#spacefield#)")>

then u can use this list as u want.

let me know

K'Rgds

I guess I solved the dilemma myself by using a format in the query. Here's what I ended up with:

<cfquery name="crossTMResults" datasource="TM">
                         TRANSFORM Count(ACTIVITIES.ACTIVITYID) AS CountOfACTIVITYID
                         SELECT ACTIVITIES.TM_RESULTS
                         FROM ACTIVITIES
                         WHERE ACTIVITYDATE BETWEEN #createodbcdatetime(StartDate)# AND #createodbcdatetime(theenddate)#
                         GROUP BY FORMAT(ACTIVITIES.TM_RESULTS,'zmmddyyyy')
                         PIVOT ACTIVITYDATE;
                     </cfquery>

I was then able to to refer to the column, by using evaluate and a listgetat on the query.Columns list. Thanks anyway, I'll probably have this question deleted if there are no objections.

Sounds fine to me.  Good job in figuring this one out on your own.
