Can anyone tell me why this statement is not working.  I keep getting a

ORA-01427: single-row subquery returns more than one row  

error

UPDATE tmp10110191
   SET mnth_sales_amt =
          (SELECT   SUM (dlycsh.sales_amt)
               FROM tmx.dlycsh, chgdata.tmp10110191
              WHERE dlycsh.tran_dt >= TO_DATE ('01/01/03', 'MM/DD/YY')
                AND dlycsh.tran_dt <= TO_DATE ('10/22/03', 'MM/DD/YY')
           GROUP BY dlycsh.site_no)

Thanks,

jms

I think that there are more dlycsh.site_no (GROUP BY dlycsh.site_no) than one there.

Could you post us the table tmp10110191 structure!

If tmp10110191 table has site_no column, SQL below will do
UPDATE tmp10110191 t
   SET t.mnth_sales_amt =
          (SELECT   SUM (dlycsh.sales_amt)
               FROM tmx.dlycsh, chgdata.tmp10110191
              WHERE dlycsh.tran_dt >= TO_DATE ('01/01/03', 'MM/DD/YY')
                AND dlycsh.tran_dt <= TO_DATE ('10/22/03', 'MM/DD/YY')
                AND dlycsh.site_no = t.site_no)

Your subquery is returning multiple rows, maybe you should test first the subquery alone and see how many rows it retrieves you, if you receive more than one row you have to use an "any" or "all" clause for comparisons

like

UPDATE tmp10110191
   SET mnth_sales_amt > any
          (SELECT   SUM (dlycsh.sales_amt)
               FROM tmx.dlycsh, chgdata.tmp10110191
              WHERE dlycsh.tran_dt >= TO_DATE ('01/01/03', 'MM/DD/YY')
                AND dlycsh.tran_dt <= TO_DATE ('10/22/03', 'MM/DD/YY')
           GROUP BY dlycsh.site_no)


that is talking about syntax but to make your statement to work properly we need to know the logistic

regards!
