    Unanswered: Chart based on 2 fields

    I need to create a pic chart based on two fields and I haven't been able to figure it out.

    I have a field that shows the job number, Hours Completed, and hours remaining.

    Here is my sql

    SELECT [Job #] ,TimeCompleted,TimeRemaining FROM dbo_vw_ReleasedJobStatusTimeRemaining
    When a user selects a job # I want to display a chart that shows a pie chart with one slice showing the timecompleted and the other showing the timeremaining.

    I guess normally with a pie chart all the data comes from one field. In this case I have data in two fields so I'm not sure how to get the result I need.

    Can someone please help me?

    I'm using access 2010

    You need to create three Queries to prepare the Data suitable for the PIE Chart. The SQLs are given below, copy and paste them into SQL Editing Window of new Query.

    Query Name: Query1
    SELECT [Job #], TimeCompleted FROM dbo_vw_ReleasedJobStatusTimeRemaining;
    Query Name: Query2

    SELECT [Job #], TimeRemaining FROM dbo_vw_ReleasedJobStatusTimeRemaining;
    Query Name: UnionQuery

    SELECT Query1.[Job #], Query1.TimeCompleted FROM Query1
    SELECT Query2.[Job #], Query2.TimeRemaining FROM Query2;
    The result set in UnionQuery is a two column value and suitable for PIE Chart.
