Hi, first time posting here and I have a report requirement that I cannot seem to find any solution for.
I have a matrix with two datasets. The report will show current day data so it will be 5 rows. I've added a second row to the report, inserted a sparkline and the sparkline needs to reference the 2nd dataset in order to provide a 5 day trending for each metric. My problem is everytime I run this report, it comes up blank on the sparkline with no data. I've tried to reference the 2nd dataset under series properties, but that doesnt do anything.

I've attached some sample data broken into 2 tabs which goes into more detail. I'm starting to think this is not possible to do, but just need to see if any anyone has a solution.

Thanks,
Please let me know if I need to provide any additional information.

Something like this?

Design the spark line as a sub report with the second data set in it and use a parameter for the metricname and it should work and a little where clause in the data set to take the parameter and work out the dates needed. (Image attached)

This should work. You really have no choice but to use a additional report (in this case, the above mentioned subreport) with its own data region as you can only attach a single dataset to any of the data regions.
