Hello,

My last columns are trying to find the percent of items that contain a L or an R, you get the idea.  However, the only percent im coming up with is 0, any suggestions?

Thank You

SELECT
      LINNBR As "Number",
      COD As "Code",
      Convert(varchar, DAT, 101) As "Date",
      Left(CAGE, 2) As House,
      DateDiff("d", DAT, VAL) As "Age",
      Sum( Case When NBR <> 0 Then 1 End) As "Total_Count",
      Avg(BW) AS "Weight",
      Avg([BW]/DateDiff("d", DAT, VAL)) As "ADG",
      Avg(BC) As AvgBC,
      Avg(FE) As AvgFe,
      Sum( Case When Stat1 = 'E' Then 1 End) As "Elites",
      Avg( Case When Stat1 = 'E' Then (BWT1) End) As "Avg_Weight_E",
      (Sum( Case When Defects1 like '%L%' Then 1 else 0 End)) As "%L",
      100*(Sum( Case When Def like '%T%' Then 1 else 0 End)/Sum( Case When NBR <> 0 Then 1 End)) As "%T",
      100*(Sum( Case When Def like '%K%' Then 1 else 0 End)/Sum( Case When NBR <> 0 Then 1 End)) As "%K",
      100*(Sum( Case When Def like '%R%' Then 1 else 0 End)/Sum( Case When NBR <> 0 Then 1 End)) As "%R",
      100*(Sum( Case When Def like '%V%' Then 1 else 0 End)/Sum( Case When NBR <> 0 Then 1 End)) As "%V",
      100*(Sum( Case When Def like '%D%' Then 1 else 0 End)/Sum( Case When NBR <> 0 Then 1 End)) As "%D",
      100*(Sum( Case When Def like '%S%' Then 1 else 0 End)/Sum( Case When NBR <> 0 Then 1 End)) As "%S"
FROM
      PSBRLEVLP
WHERE
      VAL <> ''
GROUP BY
      LINNBR,
      COD,
      DAT,
      Left(CAGE, 2),
      DateDiff("d", DAT, VAL)

You probably have some nulls, which sets it all null. Try substituting:

NULLIF(NBR, 0)

for

NBR
0

the SUM returns int, so SLQ treats the calculation as integers. You are dividng numerator by denom then multiplying by 100
e.g. 100 * ( 1234 / 1500) will give 100 * ( 0) = 0
try casting as floats (you can get away with only the numerator)

.....
   100.0 *( cast( Sum( Case When Def like '%T%' Then 1 else 0 End) as float) /Sum( Case When NBR <> 0 Then 1 End)) As "%T",
.....
0

Possibly SQL Server's implicit conversion on the data type--try this:

100*(Sum( Case When Def like '%T%' Then 1 else 0 End)/Sum( Case When NBR <> 0 Then 1.00  End)) As "%T"
0
