CF Grid Data

I have a query returning some columns as:

colum1,colum2,column3,column4,column5 - These columns are coming from DB.

Now i want to o some extra processing and display their results in the cfgrid as:

colum1,colum2,column3,column4,column5, column6, column7, column8

column6, column7, column8 - should be calculated as

column1 - column2 as column 6
column3 - column4 as column 7
column1 - column5 as column 8

ZCurrently i am oing in cfquery, but i want to get the data which comes from tables as and do calculation on coldfusion side and return the data using

QueryConvertForGrid(), because my query will return data using this tag in cfgrid

Easily you can do it from SQL itself...

select c1, c2, c3, c4, c5, c1-c2 as c6, c3-c4 as c7, c1-c5 as c8
from......

and pass this query results to grid...

just do it in sql its quicker and easier.

select
colum1,
colum2,
column3,
column4,
column5,
(colum1 - colum2) as colum 6,
(colum3 - colum4) as colum 7,
(colum1 - colum5) as colum 8

where etc etc

This will display the extra collums that you need and get your database to do the calculations.

right i know, i am currently doing in sql. But the issue lies in performance and when i export all the data to excel it throws me java heap error

so bring data which sql gives, and store using a loop in variables and store the data which is converted also in variables and pass in cfgrid. that is my question!

aslo i calculate the colum 7 as percentage sobring from sql as %tage will be cumbersome and suppose if thereis a diviosn by zero. That will be an issue

Free Tool: Subnet Calculator

The subnet calculator helps you design networks by taking an IP address and network mask and returning information such as network, broadcast address, and host range.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

If you dont want to do it using sql. you will have to use a cfc and ajax to get the data into the grid.

see tutorial

you get java heap error while retrieving the data from database or while generating the excel?

If it is while generating excel, then try increasing JVM memory....

mustang83Commented:
thats only a basic example.

It is the only way you can mess around with your query before you submit into the grid.

I spent days with grids and queries. I ended up not using them and outputting into standard html tables and setting up pagination because i want to play with the data when i was outputting it line by line.

are you using cf9 cfspreadsheet or any other third party excel generators?..
one best you can use is jexcel library  http://jexcelapi.sourceforge.net/

no CF9 Spreadsheet

In one of my previous project I was facing same problem, then we used this jexcel library..
pass the record set from coldfusion as a hashmap to the java function that creates the excel. that solved my issue...

You can make templates and access that templates to create the download.

you will have to create a new query and then pass that back to your grid. but if u are getting performance issues in SQL i doubt CF will do a much better job. i'm guessing ur data size is massive. i'll take u through the process anywaz

<cfquery name="orgQry">
SELECT colum1,colum2,column3,column4,column5
</cfquery>

<cfset myNewQry = queryNew("colum1,colum2,column3,column4,column5,column6,column7,column8")>

<cfloop query="orgQry">
    <cfset queryAddRow(myNewQry)>
    <cfset querySetCell(myNewQry,"column1",column1)>
    <cfset querySetCell(myNewQry,"column2",column2)>
    <cfset querySetCell(myNewQry,"column3",column3)>
    <cfset querySetCell(myNewQry,"column4",column4)>
    <cfset querySetCell(myNewQry,"column5",column5)>
    <cfset querySetCell(myNewQry,"column6",column1-column2)>
    <cfset querySetCell(myNewQry,"column7",column3-column4)>
    <cfset querySetCell(myNewQry,"column8",column1-column5)>
</cfloop>

//pass back ur new query now to your grid

<cfreturn QueryConvertForGrid(myNewQry)>

if your page times out try increasing the timeout for the page at the top like so,

<cfsetting requesttimeout="500">

That's Great..

Also i had to perform a calculation on my Last Column as a-b/*100 - Gives result in Percentage..

Can you Show me how to do that

Gurpreet Singh RandhawaWeb DeveloperAuthor Commented:
in the above if there is a division by zero or negative number, it should not through an error and if value comes as decimal, it should show upto 2 decimal points

devilJinKazamaCommented:

sure mate

last column

  <cfset querySetCell(myNewQry,"column8",numberFormat((column1/iif(column5 EQ 0,1,column5))*100,"___.__") & '%')>

adding the '%' symbol at the end will make it look good but it will convert it to a string value , so u may not be able to sort real time properly in the grid, leave it out and it'll work

Gurpreet Singh RandhawaWeb DeveloperAuthor Commented:
so the above reads as if Division by zero, Display 0% else display 22.33% right
0
 
devilJinKazamaCommented:

this should work for u, we can do it in a simpler way

<cfif listFind("-1,0",sgn(column5)) NEQ 0>
 <cfset querySetCell(myNewQry,"column8",numberFormat(0,"___.__") & '%')>
<cfelse>
 <cfset querySetCell(myNewQry,"column8",numberFormat((column1/column5)*100,"___.__") & '%')>
</cfif>

that just sets column 8 as 0.00% if column5 is 0 or a negative number, else calculate the percentage

so final version :

<cfquery name="orgQry">
SELECT colum1,colum2,column3,column4,column5
</cfquery>

<cfset myNewQry = queryNew("colum1,colum2,column3,column4,column5,column6,column7,column8")>

<cfloop query="orgQry">
    <cfset queryAddRow(myNewQry)>
    <cfset querySetCell(myNewQry,"column1",column1)>
    <cfset querySetCell(myNewQry,"column2",column2)>
    <cfset querySetCell(myNewQry,"column3",column3)>
    <cfset querySetCell(myNewQry,"column4",column4)>
    <cfset querySetCell(myNewQry,"column5",column5)>
    <cfset querySetCell(myNewQry,"column6",column1-column2)>
    <cfset querySetCell(myNewQry,"column7",column3-column4)>
    <cfif listFind("-1,0",sgn(column5)) NEQ 0>
        <cfset querySetCell(myNewQry,"column8",numberFormat(0,"___.__") & '%')>
    <cfelse>
        <cfset querySetCell(myNewQry,"column8",numberFormat((column1/column5)*100,"___.__") & '%')>
    </cfif>
</cfloop>

//pass back ur new query now to your grid

<cfreturn QueryConvertForGrid(myNewQry)>
