Create an arrayList or temp db table at runtime so I can create a graph with data not related
Posted on 2013-01-29
I have a problem were I need to create a graph from 24 fields of data which are not related in any way apart from that they come from the same table. There does not seem to be any way I can do this. What I want to do is create a stacked bar graph in ReportBuilder3 and compare 12 items. Each item would have a value A or B. However since the information is not related e.g. Field1.1ItemA, Field1.2ItemB, Field2.1ItemA, Field2.2ItemB, etc, ...Field12.1ItemA, Field12.2ItemB.
They have been created in one table. Normally this would be created over two tables but due to the way the sofware works this could not be done. I am accessing data via an odbc to an SQLServerdb.
My current sql query is
Select Field1.1ItemA, Field1.2ItemB, Field2.1ItemA, Field2.2ItemB, etc, ...Field12.1ItemA, Field12.2ItemB.
How can I create some sort of relationship so that I can a graph 12 items A vs B in a stacked graph. At moment I am looking to either create an ArrayList or create a temp db at runtime and load them in. I don't know how to do either of these. Any guidance or examples I can view to see how to do this would be very much appreciated!.
