I have a table with transactional data in it. Each row represents one transaction and has a field (dCreated) which identifies when it was created.

With the following syntax I can count how many transactions occurred per minute:

SELECT COUNT(*) AS [count],
DAY(dCreated) AS d,
{ fn HOUR(dCreated) } AS h,
{ fn MINUTE(dCreated) } AS m
FROM tblAuditUploadAppProfile
GROUP BY DAY(dCreated), { fn HOUR(dCreated) }, { fn MINUTE(dCreated) }
ORDER BY DAY(dCreated), { fn HOUR(dCreated) }, { fn MINUTE(dCreated) }

But if a minute passes with no transactions it doesn't show up here. How do I 'show the zeros'?

You will have to create a table with all the minutes in it and outer join from it.

You can use a derived table too.

Also you could put this result into a temp table then fill in the gaps with 0's.

Cursors are useful if you don't know sql.
DTS can be used in a similar way.
