So, a Telerik Reports newbie here and I have a question about all of my charts doing this funny little thing with grouping and returning multiple pie/bar/line charts.
So lets start with the basics, I have a Pie Chart that has two columns from the stored procedure... Age Group, and PeopleServed. The RecordSet should look something like this:
Age not Know 12
In SSRS in Visual Studio this is a really simple Pie Chart and completed in seconds. X= AgeGroup, Y=PeopleSever, done! One pie chart, not one for every AgeGroup repeating the same data over and over again. However in the stand alone Report Designer I get the attached photo instead.
I have to admit in my version of the Report Designer (Report Designer Q2 2014) that when I tried to add the data source of a stored procedure from SQL, I couldn't add it. It simply would not let me add that data set even after I tested it and it had the same number of columns and was indeed retuning data. I had to add a 'test' data source with two 'dummy' fields of the same name just to get the pie chart added and change the Data Source after. So on top of that headache, when I do add the correct live data I get this mess of multiple charts.
So I assumed the issue was with the grouping somewhere, so I followed the instructions found on Telerik's website (http://www.telerik.com/help/reporting/graphhowtocreatepiechart.html
) on how to set up the seriesGroup, categoryGroup and Series which can be seen in my second file attached.
So, assuming at this point that one of those groups was causing the issue I started to remove them. All of them at one point. I even tried to dumb the report down to just an X and a Y axis and I STILL get this grouping of the pie chart showing up 5 times no matter what settings I fix/change/alter.
So I am calling on the experts here... why is this happening? What did I do wrong with this and many reports to get these multiple charts to repeat?
