SQL 2000: Nested Case/Where Statement for summing withing date ranges

Posted on 2006-10-24

I have a table containing financial transactions (stran). I need to create an 'age of debtors' summary query which groups on the customer reference (st_account) and gives the total sum of transaction balances (sum(st_trbal) and then balances within date (st_trdate) range dependant values within 30 days and older than 30, 60, 90 days ie. (sum(st_trbal)) where st_trdate > GETDATE()-30 As AmtCurrent, (sum(st_trbal)) where st_trdate Between GETDATE()-60 And GETDATE()-30 As Amt30, Between GETDATE()-90 And GETDATE()-60 As Amt60, < GETDATE()-90 As Amt90.

I have come up with the following, but the syntax seems all wrong and SQL Server 2000 query builder does not like case so I am writing direct in Query Analyser:

SELECT     st_account AS CustomerRef, SUM(st_trbal) AS TotalBalance, sum(st_trbal) where st_trdate > GETDATE()-30 As AmtCurrent, sum(st_trbal) where st_trdate Between GETDATE()-60 And GETDATE()-30 As Amt30, sum(st_trbal) Where st_trdate Between GETDATE()-90 And GETDATE()-60 As Amt60, sum(st_trbal) Where st_trdate < GETDATE()-90 As Amt90
FROM         dbo.STRAN
GROUP BY st_account

I realise I could build and link views of the Current, 30, 60 and 90 day balance but I'm sure it should be possible to do this as one query on one table using Case or something - I may need to include data from more tables later but this is the basis of the report/query.

Please Help

righto.. that looks like a mess..

first off, the order in sql statements:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/tsqlref/ts_sa-ses_9sfo.asp?frame=true

second,
this grouping is not as straightforward as you might think.
you need to create seperate columns for each agegroup,
and the easiest way to achieve that is probably a self-join for each group.

you can then sum over those groups.

Hi bcarrolluk,

Try this

-- code start

SELECT     st_account AS CustomerRef,
sum(case when  st_trdate > GETDATE()-30 then st_trbal else o end)  As AmtCurrent
sum(case when  st_trdate Between GETDATE()-60 And GETDATE()-30 then st_trbal else o end)  As Amt30
sum(case when  st_trdate Between GETDATE()-90 And GETDATE()-60 then st_trbal else o end)  As Amt60
sum(case when  st_trdate < GETDATE()-90 then st_trbal else o end)  As Amt90

FROM         dbo.STRAN
GROUP BY st_account

-- code end

HTH

R.

bcarrolluk,


oops missed the commas and o instead of 0

-- code start

SELECT     st_account AS CustomerRef
,sum(case when  st_trdate > GETDATE()-30 then st_trbal else 0 end)  As AmtCurrent
,sum(case when  st_trdate Between GETDATE()-60 And GETDATE()-30 then st_trbal else 0 end)  As Amt30
,sum(case when  st_trdate Between GETDATE()-90 And GETDATE()-60 then st_trbal else 0 end)  As Amt60
,sum(case when  st_trdate < GETDATE()-90 then st_trbal else 0 end)  As Amt90

FROM         dbo.STRAN
GROUP BY st_account

-- code end

select CustomerRef,sum([30]) as [30],sum([30-60]) as [30-60],sum([60-90]) as [60-90] from
(select st_account AS CustomerRef,case when datediff(d,st_trdate ,getdate())<30 then st_trbal else 0 end as '30',
case when datediff(d,st_trdate ,getdate())>=30 and datediff(d,st_trdate ,getdate())<60  then st_trbal else 0 end as '30-60',
case when datediff(d,st_trdate ,getdate())>=60 and datediff(d,st_trdate ,getdate())<90  then st_trbal else 0 end as '60-90'
