  • ColdFusion Query Of Queries Odd COUNT(*) Behavior

    Posted on May 2, 2013 at 2:06 PM

    To follow up.. what this does is not generate a random number.. the bar chart actually creates a value halfway between the values on both sides of the sFullName. So if user1 has 10 cases and user3 has 20 the chart assumes that with no value user2 should have a bar of 15 ... whacky.... read more »

    Ben... while this approach seems to work for single counts, how would you recommend a query-of-queries utilizing grouping that feeds a chart?

Ron's solution works (thanks Ron) and got me through a weekend of coding, but like many XML features in CF, and as part of your second que... read more »

  • Building A ColdFusion XML Document From Scratch

    Have there been any improvements to the treatment of XSL in CF's XML cfscript functions? It seems like such an obvious oversight. I just finished conversion of a bunch of nasty cfset calls that built up XML to a more elegant XMLnew() scripted solution only to find that now I can't seem to jam the ... read more »
