'COUNT' does not work

I do have following tbl 'GFArchiv'

Symbol   ....    DatumBerechnung .....   Technik ....... Investitionsliste ..... Unterbewertung ...

2001 JP           10.11.2006                   True             True                       False
3541 JP           10.11.2006                    True            False                      True
...
2001 JP           11.11.2006                     True            True                       True
3541 JP           11.11.2006                     True            True                       True


I would like now to count how many at each day have been 'true' on Investitionsliste, but only the ones who had 'True" in Technik like:

Date                         CountTechnikTrue          CountInvestitionslisteTrue  
10.11.2006               2                                   1        
11.11.2006               2                                   2

I've tried this with

SELECT     CONVERT(smalldatetime, CONVERT(char(10), DatumBerechnung, 104), 104) AS Date, COUNT(Investitionsliste) AS Expr2
FROM         dbo.GFArchiv
WHERE     (Technik = 1)
GROUP BY CONVERT(smalldatetime, CONVERT(char(10), DatumBerechnung, 104), 104)
HAVING      (COUNT(Investitionsliste) = 1)

but it runs forever. Seems something wrong but what?

Can I count in the same step also the one where 'Unterbewertung' is true, but only the ones where 'Investitionsliste' is true as well?

thx

Hi,

The query that you supplied did not give both counts.

If you did

SELECT     CONVERT(smalldatetime, CONVERT(char(10), DatumBerechnung, 104), 104) AS Date, sum(case when Investitionsliste = true then 1 else 0  end) AS countInvestitonsliste, sum(case when Technik = true then 1 else 0  end) AS countTechnik,
FROM         dbo.GFArchiv
WHERE     (Technik = 1)
GROUP BY CONVERT(smalldatetime, CONVERT(char(10), DatumBerechnung, 104), 104)
HAVING      (COUNT(Investitionsliste) = 1)


it should give you the count of each

Try this:

SELECT
Date, SUM(CASE Technik WHEN 'True' THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) CountTechnikTrue, SUM(CASE Investitionsliste WHEN 'True' THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) CountInvestitionslisteTrue
FROM dbo.GFArchiv
WHERE Technik = 'True'
GROUP BY Date

the fields 'Technik', 'Investitionsliste', 'Unterbewertung' are bit-fields and I get an error saying can't convert 'True'. I now changed true into 'CASE WHEN  Investitionsliste= 1....

but now I don't get the error anymore but it runs again forever?

I inted to use the results for a diagram in MS Access front-end, shall I export data first in a table and use them after for the diagram or take the procedure as a source as it looks more complex than I thought?

I use now imran_fast latest version but wait now 6'+ and QA is still running. Actualy there are 6 millions rst in the tbl, so I assume this should be no problem for SQL.

I've now changed DatumBerechnung into CONVERT(smalldatetime, CONVERT(char(10), DatumBerechnung, 104), 104)  but still takes very long. Do you see a way to improve? I have more complicated calculations which take not that long.

yeah create this index

Create index IX_GFArchiv on GFArchiv(DatumBerechnung)

I had already an index (Symbol, Variante, DatumBerechnung) on this tbl. But DatumBerechnung ist like 10.11.2005 14:23:21. Shall I or can I convert this into 10.11.2005 meaning is there a easy way to convert all entries in the tbl at once and than proceed after with a more easy date?

updating 6 million rows will take hell of time.
try this if you dont succeed in speed up then add a new column in yourtable CustomDate update that column to have the value and then create index on that column
but first try the one below.

SELECT      convert(varchar(10),DatumBerechnung, 102)
          sum(case when Technik = 1 then 1 else 0 end) countTechnik,
          sum(case when Technik = 1 and Investitionsliste = 1 then 1 else 0 end) countInvestitionsliste,
FROM         dbo.GFArchiv

GROUP BY   convert(varchar(10),DatumBerechnung, 102)

KongtaAuthor Commented:
ok, doesn't improve that much. Let me try to solve by adding a new column.

I'll close this Q as the initial problem has been solved. Thx to all. I award Raynard7 & aneeshattingal  with 100 points as their solution was correct as well & imran_fast with the 250 as he gave me the follow-up.
