help with chart please - newbie

hello everyone

have the following fields: these are months from an excel spreadsheet

month query.jpg

I am trying to compile a bar chart to show the fluctuation of attendances per month. i think i should be containing these fields into something else like month but i am unsure on how to do this

any guidance would be greatly appreciated

Let Date be your datefield..and Attendence is field with 0 for Absence or 1 for presence

Now while loading..........




--------new aliase field-----------------

Month(Date) as Month


Now you can use month as Dimension...and Expression=sum(Attendence)

Any other issue let me know.

Many Thanks

I would have done as you have mentioned but the data i am using has the following layout (i have removed the figures)


I am thinking the script needs to be changed to categorise all the dates into one field but i am unsure about the correct way to do this?

Load the script using the wizard (when you click on the table files button at the bottom of the edit script box it prompts you to open a file and then opens a wizard) go through the process and choose the enable transformation process option. When you get to the File Wizard option view it gives you the option to put your data into a Crosstable - this will help you to put all the dates into one data field.

Hope this helps
