How can I pull site views from my table from the last 30 days and display it in a specific format...

Last Modified: 2021-04-21
Please see attached code for what I'm trying to do.



<!--- Loop back 30 days from today --->
<cfloop index="d" from="1" to="30" step="1">
   <cfset myDate = "#dateFormat(dateAdd('d', -(d-1), now()), 'yyyy-mm-dd')#" >
   <!--- pull data from the "myDate" value  --->
   <cfquery name="getViews" datasource="#request.dsn#" username="#request.dsnUsername#" password="#request.dsnPassword#">
		SELECT days, views
        FROM site_views
        WHERE days = '#myDate#'  
   <!--- An example of a formatted input value for "days" : 2011-10-20 23:44:24 --->	   

I'm trying to output my data into 2 separate lists. 

List 1: Days starting from beginning of 30 days ago.. = '2011/10/25', '2011/10/24', '2011/10/23',... '2011/11/06' (last 30 days worth)

List 2: The views and if there isn't any value for "days" meaning there were no views then it would = '0' but the overall list would be...
0, 1, 5, 6, 7.... 9 (last 30 days worth)
