Hello,
I am trying to create a report so that on the left hand side, it shows me sites and job types.
Along the top, it needs to show me every day of a particular month.
When a site has a job on a particular date, a 1 is in the relevant place.

I can get a matrix to display the dates which have been selected in the database but I need every day of the month.

Could anyone please help.
Thanks

A typical solution to this sort of problem involves using a "calendar" table that is prepopulated with all of the dates you would be interested in, and then linking to that table with an outer join in your SQL statement.

You could also change to a standard table (not Matrix) and setup  your detail row to show all the days of the month per job site and job types by grouping the job site.

The way I did this,
I created a table in SQL with an int. field
I then created a variable in variable in my report query called start day and end day
The start day is 1 and the end day is set through an if statement.
It is either 28, 29, 30 or 31 depending on the month the report is running for.
The date is then set using convert(month, numbefromsql, year).
I used an outer join to match the days together with my data which left me with all the days of the month.
Thanks for your help guys
