!!! Calendar / Date / Array / Query problem

Here's the app def:  
Its an approval site for time. User enters how much hours they worked overtime.
Manager logs on and can approve or reject.

Current Situation:

I need to be able to add the number of hours for each day and print it out for that day for each employee

I have the following query:

<!--- grabs all approved users info --->
<CFQUERY DATASOURCE="lieu" NAME="lookup">
      SELECT to_char (zdate, 'mm/DD/yyyy hh24:MI') as zdate,
                  to_char (time, 'mm/DD/yyyy hh24:MI') as zTime,
                  title, id, comments, status, type, user_id
      FROM lieu_events
      WHERE zdate LIKE '%#UCase(DateFormat(ThisCalMonth, "mmm-yy"))#%'
      AND status='APPROVED'
</CFQUERY>



How do I alter the SQL statement so that it sums up the number of hours entered (zdate - time) per day for each user_id??

That should do it.

If you still need other columns just add them to both the select and group by....

you might want to try this
SELECT to_char (zdate, 'mm/DD/yyyy hh24:MI') as zdate,
               to_char (time, 'mm/DD/yyyy hh24:MI') as zTime,
               (datediff(minute ,zdate,time) )* 60 as totalHours
               title, id, comments, status, type, user_id
     FROM lieu_events
     WHERE zdate LIKE '%#UCase(DateFormat(ThisCalMonth, "mmm-yy"))#%'
     AND status='APPROVED'

Thx for responding mrichmon.
Btw, there is also a type table field.
This indicates what kind of request. Overtime or Taking time off.

How would that change, like so?

<CFQUERY DATASOURCE="lieu" NAME="lookup">
     SELECT SUM(Datediff(h, zdate, time)) AS hoursum, user_id, type
     FROM lieu_events
     WHERE zdate LIKE '%#UCase(DateFormat(ThisCalMonth, "mmm-yy"))#%'
     AND status='APPROVED'
     GROUP BY user_id, type
</CFQUERY>

Would give results like:
user_id          hoursum          type
123643            10                 overtime
123643            7                   taking time off
658354            5                  taking time off
967562           8                   sick
993422             17               overtime
999231            24               taking time off
etc...

I mean, if on one day within the month .... the user - for whatever reason - decides to input two requests for time taken off or overtime then i'd like to sum up the hours of time taken off separately and overtime worked separately within one particular day for each user.


is that too cryptic?  i hope someone can figure out what im trying to say

Here's the table definition:

 Name                                      Null?    Type
 ----------------------------------------- -------- ----------------------------
 ID                                                 VARCHAR2(8)
 USER_ID                                            VARCHAR2(6)
 ZDATE                                              DATE
 TIME                                               DATE
 TITLE                                              VARCHAR2(75)
 COMMENTS                                           VARCHAR2(200)
 STATUS                                             VARCHAR2(50)
 TYPE                                               VARCHAR2(25)


Im' getting the following error:

ORA-00904: invalid column name

SQL = "SELECT SUM(Datediff(h, zdate, time)) AS hoursum, user_id FROM lieu_events WHERE zdate LIKE '%OCT-04%' AND status='APPROVED' GROUP BY user_id"

kkhippleAuthor Commented:
mind you, I also would like it so that it sums up the hours for each day.  

is the query doing that?

<CFQUERY DATASOURCE="lieu" NAME="lookup">
     SELECT SUM(Datediff(h, zdate, time)) AS hoursum, user_id, type
     FROM lieu_events
     WHERE zdate LIKE '%#UCase(DateFormat(ThisCalMonth, "mmm-yy"))#%'
     AND status='APPROVED'
     GROUP BY user_id, type
</CFQUERY>


from what it seems, its summing up the hours for whatever zdate im passing it. which in this case, is the first of the month.

KDK
p.s.  i couldn't get the group by thing going for my particular problem... so used an array to store unqiue user_id ... and then looped thru and added the hrs ...  if anyone wants to see the code... let me know
