foreach (var item in byyear_data.Entities)
Int32 aggregate11 = (Int32)((AliasedValue)item[“year”]).Value;
System.Console.WriteLine(“Year: ” + aggregate11);
Int32 aggregate11a = (Int32)((AliasedValue)item[“opportunity_count”]).Value;
System.Console.WriteLine(“Count of all opportunities: ” + aggregate11a);
decimal aggregate11b = ((Money)((AliasedValue)item[“estimatedvalue_sum”]).Value).Value;
