Hi,

For this example I have a table called "Results" with three columns Call, Status and Result

I will have input some dummy rows of data

CALL     Status     Date
123       1             01/08/10
124       1             01/08/10
125       2             01/08/10
126       2             02/08/10
127       1             02/08/10
128       2             02/08/10
129       2             02/08/10

In a graph in crystal reports (bar chart), I want to show the total number of calls per day and also the number of calls with the different status's.

therefore the first bar on the 01/08/10 should show the total calls (3) and then 2 further bars for the two status's showing (2 for status 1) and (1 for status 2)

on the 02/08/10 the first bar should show 4 calls and then 2 further bars again for the two status's showing 1 call and 3 calls respectively

My question is how do I get the values of the different status's on each day, so that I can show them in the graph.

Thanks

You have to create groups for each dimension you want to chart.  For your example, you would need to first group on the date selecting day as the time unit.  Next, create a group for status.  Ensure that the group for status is inside the group for date(day).  You should at that point be able to use the chart wizard to create the desired results.

Good luck!
