In a Query component I have a SQL string :
select sum(price) from customer
What do I write to add one field more?
I have tried many ways like:
select date sum(price) from Customer
and
select date and sum(price) from Customer

Hello,

I think you should try this:

Select Date, Sum(price) from Customer

select date, sum(price) from customer does not work.

I want to sum the field Price and it's OK with
select sum(price) from Customer
But when writing
select Date, sum(price) from customer group by date
the SumOfPrice shows the value of the current record and not the sum of all.

hi rainbowsoftware,

you cannot have fields and the sum of all in a normal sql-statement but in a nested subquery should it go :

select date, sumoverall from customer, (select sum(price) as sumoverall from customer)

but each line holds now the total sum
