Can you create a chart based on calculated fields? I have some calculated fields showing total spend and net spend as a percent to sales by month that I want to represent graphically but can't figure out how to do it with calculated fields...

Hi

Yes you can do that and one way of doing that is adding extra row in your table and placing the graph in there (you create connection between table and graph) so when you drag and drop any fields into 'drop data fields here ' on the graph you will be able to change it to expression (copy paste should work).

I hope that helps.

Emil

I don't believe I understand that...also, grand total comes (spend) come from one data set as where sales and transbilling come from another...

also, my source data tables are setup where I pivoted the months into columns...dont know if that makes a difference

locations | year | cost | jan | feb | mar | etc....

Sorry I thought the table uses only one dataset. It is difficult to answer it without playi with it. Is there a way you could upload the rdl file? (remove anything you want I just want dataset fields and calculation on report)

Would you consider returning the data in a separate dataset and using it to create the chart?

here is the rdl file......I'd be open to any new ideas as I've only started picking up SSRS a few weeks ago some I'm fairly new rookie at this....but it is kinda similar to crystal reports which i've used before

Hi

Hmmm I though it will be easier.... you might want to add an extra row below net cost and add subreport. (see picture).

What should work is passing parameters. So you can pass X/Y and legend. Not sure if this will help but SSRS has two function split, join which might help.

I think if you pass parameter and then fire stored procedure you should be able to get 'clean' dataset in subreport and construct the chart.

Sounds overcomplicated but I cannot think about easier way of doing that currently..

Hope that helps
