I need to show time distribution in the form of a pie chart. I am relying on people allocating 40 hours a week of time, however time can be left unallocated. The pie chart can show that 100% of 30 hours was allocated, however this is misleading as it is
not 100% allocated in terms of 40 hours.
The records are compiled in a sql view and are made up of many entries making up a week. I can pin it down to a 7 day date range, and assume that it will always be 40 hours. How to i calculate the missing time and show it seamlessly as just another section
on the pie chart?
I'm working on an idea of creating a 'command' under database expert, which will be a summarised version of the original view, complete with subqueries to make up the time, creating a (sql) union query of sorts to the view also under database expert. If
it allows me to do such a thing.
Also I have a requirement to keep the colours consistent in subsequent pie charts. One chart for each person is shown on the same report. To do this I need to 'create' records with a value of 0% to act as a place holder for that colour. This will make the
charts more user friendly as it would be more easy to compare the distribution at a glance.
I believe fixing one will give me the key to fix the other.
Any ideas? Surely someone has had these problem before.
