Hello. Using Business Objects. I don't have authority to edit the SQL, so I'm limited to using the built-in query builder tools.
I'm running a query that returns all transactions within a date range. One of the fields in the table is a date field. By creating a variable using the function editor, I can get a total record count by doing the following:
Is there any way I can modify it or drag it into my report to give me a monthly record count? For example, let's say the date range I choose is 1/1/2010 through 3/31/2010. Let's say during January, there were 100 transactions, February there were 50, and March there were 200.
Right now my report is displaying all of the detail records (using my example above, that would be 350 detail records). I'm trying to be able to achieve something like this:
instead of or in addition to displaying the detail records. Like I said, I can get a TOTAL record count using the function editor but I don't know to modify it (if possible) to give me a count by month. Again, I CANNOT edit the SQL directly, so I can't type in SELECT statements or anything like that.
