[SOLVED] New record from SYSTABLE
Hi Folks,
My problem is that I need to show some zero records for a few labels. Its hard to describe but its stuff we've all come across...
 
DAY     COUNT
Monday     10
Tuesday    22
Friday     38

But I would also like to show the other days with zero records/counts:
  
DAY     COUNT
Monday     10
Tuesday    22
Wednesday   0
Thursday    0
Friday     38

Now, I've inherited code where the coder is doing exactly this. He is making a hold file with the 0 data, and appended it to another table (the table with the non-zero data) via the MORE command. I've tried to use that code as a template, but I'm having problems. I am getting FOC1175 (NO REFERENCE TO FIELD DATA) when I try to create the zero record. This is the code:
  
TABLEF FILE SYSTABLE
SUM	
	COMPUTE TESTME/I1 = 0;
WHERE READLIMIT EQ 1
WHERE RECORDLIMIT EQ 1
ON TABLE HOLD AS ZERO1
END

Any tips?

I also wanted to add that this dude seems to have went this way but he never posted the code.

Oh... I'm using SQL Server

I think this should work for you:
 
SET HOLDLIST=PRINTONLY
TABLEF FILE SYSTABLE
SUM NAME NOPRINT
    COMPUTE TESTME/I1 = 0;
WHERE READLIMIT EQ 1
WHERE RECORDLIMIT EQ 1
ON TABLE HOLD AS ZERO1
END

That seems to have worked... thank you... doing a little more testing...

As a possible alternative, when you are a reporting a set of logical and unchanging categories (like days of the week), you may consider skipping the blank data generation and simply defining your rows or columns explicity:

 TABLE FILE CAR
SUM CNT.SEATS
BY SEATS ROWS 1 OVER 2 OVER 3 OVER 4 OVER 5 OVER 6 OVER 7
ON TABLE PCHOLD FORMAT HTML
END 


This might be a more elegant solution in some circumstances - useless in others. Best of luck!
