Displaying number of records depdning on table contents - classic asp

Hi all,

I want to start messing around with KPI's in my system. I know how to do a simple record count (code displayed below).

I have a task management system where my users have a lot of control concerning system behaviour. For instance, when a task is created it gets the status recieved and when it's done it gets the status Completed. However - in between these types of status, the user can freely define as many status types as they want. So what I want to accomplish is this:

I want my code to run through my Task table counting the number of records per task status - i.e. Tasks completed = 58, Tasks Received = 32, Tasks under review = 23, Tasks waiting on repair = 12 etc. I wont know beforehand what type of status's are present in the system (besides Received and completed) and they may change. How do I accomplish this? Current code below which doesn't solve the issue as it oly looks for one type of task.

Dim objconn,objRSM,strSQL

Set objconn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
objconn.Open strConnect

	  strSQL = "SELECT Count(*) as Numrecords FROM Fejlmelding order by Status ASC"
	     set objRSM = objconn.Execute(strSQL)
             set objRSM = objconn.Execute(strSQL)
         
Modtaget = (objRSM("NumRecords"))

how's your table design looks like? in general, you need to group by with the status text, like:
SELECT Status , Count(Status ) as Numrecords
FROM Fejlmelding
group by Status
order by Status ASC

That returns the number 5 which puzzles me as there in that particular database only exists 4 types currently (Received, Completed, See comments & rejected). How do I display the status text next to the number(s)?

if we are querying same source (same table in same database) with same query, it should return the exact number of records, either as you claimed it 4 or 5 records in total.

>>How do I display the status text next to the number(s)?
do you want to do it in query or in asp ?

Just to clarify:

I'm looking for code, that can display thinsg like this (in this particular database):

Recieved = 12
See comments = 3
Completed = 7
Rejected = 3

(And any other status type found in that table)

see if this is what you need?
SELECT concat(Status, ' = ' , Count(Status )) as Numrecords
FROM Fejlmelding
group by Status
order by Status ASC

We are getting close. This returned:
Completed = 713

However the other types of status are missing. I probably need a loop of some sort? I'll just post the code as it looks now.

<!--#include file="db/database_read.inc"--><%
Dim objconn,objRSM,strSQL

Set objconn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
objconn.Open strConnect

	  strSQL = "SELECT concat(Status, ' = ' , Count(Status )) as Numrecords FROM Fejlmelding group by Status order by Status ASC"
	     set objRSM = objconn.Execute(strSQL)
             
         


Records = (objRSM("Numrecords"))



%>
<br><%= Records %><br>

you need to do a loop in your asp codes... like:
<!--#include file="db/database_read.inc"--><%
Dim objconn,objRSM,strSQL

Set objconn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
objconn.Open strConnect

	  strSQL = "SELECT concat(Status, ' = ' , Count(Status )) as Numrecords FROM Fejlmelding group by Status order by Status ASC"
	     set objRSM = objconn.Execute(strSQL)
             
do while objRSM.eof = false
    Records = (objRSM("Numrecords"))
   response.write "<br>" & Records & "<br>"
   objRSM.movenext
loop
%>
