SSRS chart grouping

Hi, I'm trying to convert a Crystal Report report to SSRS. In CR I've added a chart to a group, and in the output the chart is repeated once per group.

For example if I have sales figures for a number of regions I would group by region name and display product vs sales in the chart. The result would be a chart of product vs sales for each region.

How is this done in SSRS? I can use 2008 or 2008r2...

2 answers: sort voted first

  1. You have to create a table on the report
  2. In the table you define groups of your needs
  3. In the detail of the table you put Rectangle
  4. Put chart inside the Rectangle

In this way you will have one chart per a group.

The way it worked for me (impossible without Pavel's excellent contribution):

  1. Add a Tablix to your report (this example assumes it’s a matrix);
  2. Drag the field you want to have in your chart category onto the first row area
  3. Right click the same cell and add a row group for the same field - be sure to tick the "add group header" box.
  4. Add the field you want in your chart data field to the matrix data area
  5. Add a rectangle to the group header cell (second along, second down)
  6. Drag a chart object to the new rectangle
  7. Drag the category field to the category drop zone for the chart
  8. Drag the data field to the data field drop zone for the chart and choose the appropriate aggregation
  9. Delete, or render invisible the matrix cells you don't want
  10. Preview :-)
