Editor's Note: Monsoon Season?

"Summer" has been surprisingly cool and very, very wet here in Toronto; of course, this makes it easier to stay inside and work on cool things, but I can't help but feel like we're missing something…

One of our support crew spent some time updating the code for the How can I group the data in my chart? article, which should make it work better. The article shows you how to group categorizable data using an example with customer satisfaction scores for products by company, by year.

We continue to post useful links related to Dundas products (such as dashboarding and charting) to our official Twitter account. You can follow us at http://twitter.com/DundasData!
