I want to extract data for graphing from a table, but the field containing the
data (value) is a text field as it has both numbers and text (that's how it
is delivered to me but I have created a view which from which I can know
which fields have the numbers and I can select the type of number I want (in
this case a pathology result hba1c, by one of the keys in that view).
I want to end up with a result containg the label for the x-axes of a graph,
the count of the type of value I'm after and the order to display the bars
If I use this syntax within the query it returns the text as a number:
select count (to_number("value",'9D9')) as the_number where fk_lu_request =
But I want to be able to split up all the results into ranges eg <6, 6-7, 7-8
I want to do the equivalent of this sort of concept.
'6-6.5' as XAxes_text, count (value) as count, ,'1' as display_order
From clin_requests.vwResults where fk_lu_request = 872
and to_number("value",'9D9')) between 6-7;
but this dosn't work, and I've obviously got the syntax wrong. I've read the
docs and tried dozens of permutations to no avail.
Any help appreciated.
