Discontinuous data for chart

Discontinuous data for chart

Discontinuous data for chart

I am using CR 2016

I am pulling in bank balances every day and need to chart the trends and do have a working report/hart

The issue I have is that the data is only captured on business days not weekends or bank holidays so my chart looks like a sine wave!

I cant modify the database so I need to modify the detail line in the crystal report I think to :

1. Show continuous days from a start date parameter
2. test balance on each of these days and if null (not zero!) then bring into that row the last non null balance - this needs to carry on every row, you may have weekend with bank hoidays straddling either side etc

I think from there I can create a decent chart :) but the question is how do I do this?

Another method maybe for the chart to ignore null dates which is my plan B as not strictly correct but how could you do this also?

RE: Discontinuous data for chart

Add a calendar table to the database (one record for each date).
Outer join from that table to your daily balances table.

view, export, burst, email, and schedule Crystal Reports.
