Please help me with this SUM function with a GROUP.  I am trying to add the 'ArticleReviewCreditsClaimed'.   I have it displaying with the article name and its credit value, but I cannot get the credits to total.  Please help.


<cfset TempIDs = 0>
<CFSET Total = 0>

<cfquery name="getEvals" datasource="#DataTables#">
Select * FROM ArticleEvalQueue
Where ArticleQueueStatus = 0
</cfquery>

<cfoutput query="getEvals">
<cfset TempIDs = listappend("#TempIDs#","#ArticleQueueID#")>
</cfoutput>


<cfquery name="getProgram" datasource="#DataTables#">
SELECT     ArticleEvalQueue.*, Articles.ArticleName, Articles.ArticleCMECredit, ArticleEvals.*, Articles.ArticleID,
                      SUM(ArticleEvaluations.ArticleReviewCreditsClaimed) AS Total, Visitors.*
FROM         ArticleEvalQueue INNER JOIN
                      ArticleEvals ON ArticleEvalQueue.ArticleQueueID = ArticleEvals.ArticleQueueID INNER JOIN
                      ArticleEvaluations ON ArticleEvals.ArticleEvalID = ArticleEvaluations.ArticleReviewID INNER JOIN
                      Articles ON ArticleEvaluations.ArticleID = Articles.ArticleID INNER JOIN
                      Visitors ON ArticleEvalQueue.ArticleQueueVisitorID = Visitors.VisitorID
WHERE ArticleEvals.ArticleQueueID in(#TempIDs#)            
Order by  ArticleEvals.ArticleQueueID ASC
</cfquery>

<table width="100%">
<cfoutput query="getProgram" group="ArticleQueueID">
<tr>
<td>
<STRONG>#VisitorFirstName# #VisitorLastName#</STRONG>
<cfoutput>
<li>#ArticleName# (#ArticleID# - #ArticleQueueID# - #ArticleReviewCreditsClaimed#)</li>

</cfoutput>
</td>
</tr>
 <tr><td>#total#</td></tr>
</cfoutput>
</table>

I wonder what has * got to do with group attribute in CFQUERY ???

Jeffmace : if ur query was giving out the correct output - all u had to do was sum up the total inside the inner output tag !

I am assuming this based on the previous question - something like this MIGHT have worked for u
[keeping ur query as it is]

<TABLE WIDTH="100%">
      <CFOUTPUT QUERY="getProgram" GROUP="ArticleQueueID">
            <TR>
                  <TD><STRONG>#VisitorFirstName# #VisitorLastName#</STRONG>
                  <CFSET THISTOTAL = 0>      
                  <CFOUTPUT>
                        <LI>#ArticleName# (#ArticleID# - #ArticleQueueID# - #ArticleReviewCreditsClaimed#)</LI>
                        <CFSET THISTOTAL = (THISTOTAL + TOTAL)>
                  </CFOUTPUT>
                  </TD>
            </TR>
            <TR>
                  <TD>#ThisTotal#</TD>
            </TR>
      </CFOUTPUT>
</TABLE>

dont know if this is what u were looking for ... but thought wld give it a try !

Well I just took the correct answer as to say that I could not use the SUM function in this instance which made me look for another solution.  So now if someone comes to this thread they will see that they can not use the SUM function here and then will see your answer as another method.  So its actually helps in 2 different ways
