repeat regions..ASP..MSSQL and NOT repeating

Posted on 2004-09-01

I've queried two tables as such
SELECT dbo.tutee.idratuteeid AS idratuteeid,  
 dbo.tutee.firstname AS tutee_fisttname,        
dbo.tutee.lastname AS tutee_lastname,        
dbo.tutee.mi as tutee_mi,      
  dbo.tutee.gradelevel as gradelevel, as room,    
     dbo.tutee.elemteacherid as tutee_elemteacherid,        
dbo.elemteacher.elemteacherid as teacher_elemteacherid,    
    dbo.elemteacher.firstname as teacher_firstname,      
  dbo.elemteacher.lastname as teacher_lastname,
 dbo.studentdemo.idrastudentid as studentdemoidrastudentid,  
dbo.tutee.idrastudentid as tuteeidrastudentid,  
dbo.studentdemo.firstname as tutorfirstname,
 dbo.studentdemo.lastname as tutorlastname

FROM dbo.tutee, dbo.elemteacher, dbo.studentdemo

WHERE dbo.elemteacher.elemteacherid=dbo.tutee.elemteacherid  AND dbo.tutee.idrastudentid=dbo.studentdemo.idrastudentid  AND dbo.tutee.teachercoordid = MMColParam

And This works for lots of different things....bnut
Now I'm looking for to make a repeated region where the tutorfirstname that is associated with several tutees ONLY shows up once as the repeated region is populated
Right now it just gives me a list like this

tutee tuteeinfo tutorone
tuteeone tuteeinfo tutorone
tuteetwo  tuteeinfo tutorone

tutee tuteeinfo tutortwo
tuteeone tuteeinfo tutortwo
tuteetwo  tuteeinfo tutortwo

What I would like to see is

tutee tuteeinfo
tuteeone tuteeinfo
tuteetwo  tuteeinfo

tutee tuteeinfo
tuteeone tuteeinfo
tuteetwo  tuteeinfo

I figure that this is an ASP question and not really a SQL question but I included the SQL statement
Is there any way to simply tweak Dreamweaver's repeated region behaviors...or am I just high

typed all this in yesterday then clicked accidently clicked back and lost it GRRR

Hi hbojorquezgeek,

You will have to get into the code a tiny bit rather that relying on DW's inbuilt functions (to the best of my knowledge anyhows)

First thing add to the end of your SQL (after MMcolParam) so this will work the following:
& " ORDER BY dbo.studentdemo.firstname"
this will ensure the info comes out in the correct order for this to work

at the moment you have something akin to:
 <% While ((Repeat1__numRows <> 0) AND (NOT recordset1.EOF)) %>
replace it with the following should work:
 <% While ((Repeat1__numRows <> 0) AND (NOT recordset1.EOF)) %>
 <% if temporaryVariable <> recordset1.fields.item("tutorfirstname").value then %>
        #### this will only display for the first instance of a new tutorfirstname
        ####in the first case temporaryvariable  will be nothing in all subsequent cases temporaryvariable will be the previous record
      <tr><td colspan="2"><%=(recordset1.fields.item("tutorfirstname").value)%></td></tr>
 <% end if %>
 <!-- #### all this will display regardless - edit to suit, edit what needs to be displayed -->

  '#### this is where we set the temporary variable so the check can be done at the top
  temporaryVariable = recordset1.fields.item("tutorfirstname").value

If I have missed anything paste the resulting generated HTML (view source in browser) and I will take a peek
