Charts Fail with Path image

Charts Fail with Path image

I am trying to create a simple pie chart with dynamic data from a SQL server database. I have IIS 6, configured the site to use ASP Vbscript and tested the database connection using simple dynamic text statement. This is a link to a test page:

FASTU.asp

As you can see the database is responding to the simple query with a table of values. The pie chart I want should show the portion of students from each college, such as 20% CLAS, 40% COE and 40% CAP, for an example.

I used the most simple approach I could think of, and I still just get the path to the dataparser.asp! These are the settings I used in the wizard:

Chart Tab:
Only edit to default values on this tab is the change to Type: Pie

Data Tab:
Edits to default values are --
Choose dynamic
Choose connection, data source from the drop-downs
X Label: set to "College" from the drop-down
Group by: set to Value
Y Value: set to "unique" (a unique integer identifier) from the drop-down
Calculation set to Count

No other edits are made in the wizard.

I have installed, uninstalled, reinstalled, deleted WinCache.dat.

Can you help me to understand what I need to do?

Thanks!

Sue

if I browse directly to the data file:
FASTU_data1.asp


I see the following error:
Active Server Pages error 'ASP 0131'

Disallowed Parent Path

/DynamicWebCharts/Data/FASTU_data1.asp, line 2

The Include file '../../Connections/GIS.asp' cannot contain '..' to indicate the parent directory.



thin]\s means your host has configured the asp server not to allow document relitive paths.

to work around this, edit you Dreamweaver site, On the Local Info tab, set the "Create Links Relative To" to Site instead of Document, then recreate your chart.

Charts Fail with Path image

Hello Jason,

I did set links relative to Site Root at the local info entry. It was set to document, and I changed it when I saw a similar problem in the forums. Is there something I should do at the server level? I am admin for this web server ...

Thanks,

Sue

you could enable parent paths in the IIS Settings:

Charts Fail with Path image

Hi Jason,

Thanks for the pointers.

1) I enabled the parent paths in IIS
2) Set Dreamweaver to use relative to document
3) Re-created the webassist chart

It still doesn't show a chart. Am I still doing it wrong?

Thank you so much!

the data page gives a new error:
FASTU_data1.asp

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server error '80040e14'

Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'unique'.

/DynamicWebCharts/Data/FASTU_data1.asp, line 12


can you send a copy of your DynamicWebCharts/Data/FASTU_data1.asp page so i can examine the code?

Hi Jason,

It works! I edited Count(unique) to Count ([unique]).

THANKS!!!

yes, unique is an SQL Reserved word and should be avoided as a column name.
