How to count the number of items within a given category (group by) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a request to count the number of item whin a particular category along with the following conditions:

    1. Dose not show the deail items.
    2. The count number appears next to the category name
    3. The view is sorted by the highest count in decending order

      - Joe = 5
      - John = 4
      - Tim = 3
      - ...

    The default list view does not allow me to sort the the highest count.  If I convert the dataview to XSLT in SPD, the count would disappear. 

    Basically, I just want a summary of all the categories (Group By) of a list with the number of item counts next to it  and sorted.  Not sure if this is possible in SPD to accomplish.

    Thanks in advance.
