ADO and Aggregate Fields

Hi,

I would like to display an aggregate field using ADO.

I have an ADOTable which is the 'Item' table in my DB with primary key the "Item No". I also have another table in my DB called 'Item Ledger Entry' containing the fields "Item No", "Quantity" and primary key is the "Entry No".

I would like to display in a DBEdit the Sum of "Quantity" from the 'Item Ledger Entry' group by "Item No". My form displays the 'Item' table so all I want to do is to add this DBEdit displaying the sum of quantity for information.

Which is the quickest way to achieve this? I have thought of creating a ADOQuery having as Parameter the "Item No" which will be obtained by the DBEdit displaying this field from the 'Item' table however I am not sure this is the best way. Could u pls help me with this?

Hi,

I would go the same way. And the query would be something like:

SELECT Sum(Quantity) FROM 'Item Ledger Entry' WHERE 'Item No' = :Param;

You may add an event handler with the query above in Item table OnScroll or if you're displaying it record by record (not in a grid) in a next/prev button click.

Thanks Geo. I thought there was a way to avoid the query and all the fuss.
Actually my code is the one following however it does not work with the message "delphi parameter object is improperly defined". Any ideas?

  anADOQuery := TADOQuery.Create(Self);
  anADOQuery.Connection := DBConnection;
  anADOQuery.Parameters.CreateParameter('SelectedItemNo', ftString , pdInput, 10, Null);
  anADOQuery.Parameters.ParamByName('SelectedItemNo').Value := DBEdit1.Text;
  anADOQuery.SQL.BeginUpdate;
  try
    anADOQuery.SQL.Clear;
    anADOQuery.SQL.Add('SELECT [Item Ledger Entry].[Item No_], Sum([Item Ledger Entry].Quantity) AS SumOfQuantity ');
    anADOQuery.SQL.Add('FROM [Item Ledger Entry] ');
    anADOQuery.SQL.Add('GROUP BY [Item Ledger Entry].[Item No_] ');
    anADOQuery.SQL.Add('HAVING ((([Item Ledger Entry].[Item No_]) =: SelectedItemNo))');
  finally
    anADOQuery.SQL.EndUpdate;
  end;
  anADOQuery.Open;

Hi,

I cannot test anything right now but:

= :SelectedItemNo))');

there was a space between the : and the name of the parameter.
