SQL - Stored Procedure Help - MS SQL SERVER

I am using MS SQL Server.

I have a single table [Items] the fields are as follows:

ItemId
ItemRating
Name
DisplayCategory


I need a stored procedure that pulls all items that have an [ItemRating] of 3 (this is really a parameter @ItemRating) or if they don't have an [ItemRating] of 3 I need to see if they have an [ItemRating] of 2 IF and only if they have the same [DisplayCategory]. And-so-on 2 to 1 and 1 to 0(ONLY IF THEY HAVE THE SAME [DisplayCategory])

So in short it would select the highest [ItemRating] per [DisplayCategory] that was not greater than the @ItemRating parameter.

Thanks

Wait... you want it by DisplayCategory right:

SELECT DisplayCategory, MAX(ItemRating)
FROM Items
WHERE ItemRating <= @ItemRating
GROUP BY DisplayCategory

Or you can group by Name and DisplayCategory:

SELECT Name, DisplayCategory, MAX(ItemRating)
FROM Items
WHERE ItemRating <= @ItemRating
GROUP BY Name, DisplayCategory

ksaul,

I only want it to return a single row for each [DisplayCategory], the sql above returns multiple rows for each [DisplayCategory]

Thanks

This will give you one row per DisplayCategory

SELECT DisplayCategory, MAX(ItemRating)
FROM Items
WHERE ItemRating <= @ItemRating
GROUP BY DisplayCategory

I'm not sure.  Can you have different names for the same Rating?

Try:
SELECT i.DisplayCategory, i.Name, i.ItemRating
FROM Items i
INNER JOIN
  (SELECT DisplayCategory, MAX(ItemRating) MaxRating
  FROM Items
  WHERE ItemRating <= @ItemRating
  GROUP BY DisplayCategory) g
  ON i.DisplayCategory = g.DisplayCategory AND i.ItemRating = g.MaxRating

A problem is if you can have
ItemId ItemRating Name DisplayCategory
1        3               'a'       'cat1'
1        3               'b'       'cat1'

The join to the subquery will get the rating levels you want, but you'll still get two rows and then you would have to use another aggregate query to decide which name to display (a or b).  If you want b:

SELECT i.DisplayCategory,MAX( i.Name), i.ItemRating
FROM Items i
INNER JOIN
  (SELECT DisplayCategory, MAX(ItemRating) MaxRating
  FROM Items
  WHERE ItemRating <= @ItemRating
  GROUP BY DisplayCategory) g
  ON i.DisplayCategory = g.DisplayCategory AND i.ItemRating = g.MaxRating
GROUP BY i.DisplayCategory, i.ItemRating

Thanks you got me close. Here is the actual SProc I am using; do you see anything I am doing Wrong. Thanks for the help:

CREATE PROCEDURE dbo.ListItemsByItemRatingPlus
(@HomeID as Int, @ItemRating as Int)
 AS

Declare @Temp1 table (
ItemID Int NULL,
ItemRating Int NULL,
DisplayCategory varChar (255) NULL,
RoomCategory varChar (255) NULL
)

Declare @Temp2 table (
HomeID Int NULL,
ModelNumber varChar (255) NULL,
Bedrooms varChar (255) NULL,
Baths varChar (255) NULL,
SqFt varChar (255) NULL,
ComponentQuantity Int NULL,
ItemID Int NULL,
Description varChar (255) NULL,
ItemRating Int NULL,
MSRP float NULL,
THDSku varChar (255) NULL,
ShrtModelNumber varChar (255) NULL,
RoomCategory varChar (255) NULL,
DisplayCategory varChar (255) NULL
)

INSERT  @Temp1(ItemID, ItemRating, DisplayCategory, RoomCategory)

SELECT     MAX(ItemMaster.ItemID) AS ItemID, MAX(ItemMaster.ItemRating) AS ItemRating, ItemMaster.DisplayCategory, BOMComponents.RoomCategory
FROM         HomeMaster INNER JOIN
                      BillOfMaterials ON HomeMaster.HomeID = BillOfMaterials.HomeID INNER JOIN
                      BOMComponents ON BillOfMaterials.BillSequenceID = BOMComponents.BillSequenceID INNER JOIN
                      ItemMaster ON BOMComponents.ItemID = ItemMaster.ItemID
WHERE     (HomeMaster.Active = 1) AND (HomeMaster.HomeID = @HomeID) AND (ItemMaster.Quotable = 1) AND (ItemMaster.ItemRating <= @ItemRating)
GROUP BY ItemMaster.DisplayCategory, BOMComponents.RoomCategory

INSERT @Temp2(HomeID, ModelNumber, Bedrooms, Baths, SqFt, ComponentQuantity, ItemID, Description, ItemRating, MSRP, THDSku, ShrtModelNumber, RoomCategory, DisplayCategory)

SELECT  HomeMaster.HomeID, HomeMaster.ModelNumber, HomeMaster.Bedrooms, HomeMaster.Baths, HomeMaster.SqFt, ComponentQuantity,
                      ItemMaster.ItemID, ItemMaster.Description, ItemMaster.ItemRating, PriceListings.MSRP, ItemMaster.THDSku, ShrtModelNumber, RoomCategory, DisplayCategory
FROM         HomeMaster INNER JOIN
                      BillOfMaterials ON HomeMaster.HomeID = BillOfMaterials.HomeID INNER JOIN
                      BOMComponents ON BillOfMaterials.BillSequenceID = BOMComponents.BillSequenceID INNER JOIN
                      ItemMaster ON BOMComponents.ItemID = ItemMaster.ItemID INNER JOIN
                      PriceListings ON ItemMaster.ItemID = PriceListings.ItemID
WHERE    ( ItemMaster.ItemID IN(SELECT ItemID FROM @Temp1)) AND (HomeMaster.HomeID = 1)

SELECT *
FROM @Temp2
ORDER BY RoomCategory ASC, DisplayCategory ASC
