Hi

on your application you use

let varMinDate = Num(Peek('OrderDate', 0,'Orders'));

do you have OrderDate filed on table call Orders. if not you should replace it with the filed you need to build your calender base on it. Smiley Happy

And also what's is the temporary table and why I have to create means what is benefits of it.

time and date

Hi there,

The point of the temporary table is to get a list of all possible dates between the earliest and latest dates in your data. This will allow you to plot a line graph over time with the time axis being correct (rather than being skewed by missing values).

If you do not require the missing dates to have the various permutations worked out for you can just do the various functions directly to the OrderDate field in the Orders table.

If you are only wanting dates within a specified range then replace the two peek statements (which are getting max and min) with hard coded date values.

Hope that helps.

Regards,
Steve
