Hi, I am trying 2 sum the total value of 2 columns from seperate tables.

I can get the result if both tables have a value, but if my second table named savedorders has no value then i get no value at all returned.

I tried it with union as well, but could work out how to sum the 2 results at the end.

here is my code so far

SELECT (select SUM(grandtotal) AS Total  FROM   dbo.savedorders  WHERE DATEDIFF (d, orderdate, getdate()) = 0 AND cardvaild ='y')  +  (SELECT SUM(grandtotal)
FROM dbo.orders
WHERE DATEDIFF (d, orderdate, getdate()) = 0 AND cardvaild ='y')  as today

unsure i think


SELECT (select SUM(grandtotal) AS Total,
(SELECT SUM(grandtotal)
FROM dbo.orders
WHERE DATEDIFF (d, orderdate, getdate()) = 0 AND cardvaild ='y')  as today)

  FROM   dbo.savedorders  WHERE DATEDIFF (d, orderdate, getdate()) = 0 AND cardvaild ='y')

Try this
Select Sum(Total) From (
select SUM(grandtotal) AS Total  FROM   dbo.savedorders  WHERE DATEDIFF (d, orderdate, getdate()) = 0 AND cardvaild ='y'
Union
SELECT SUM(grandtotal) As total
FROM dbo.orders
WHERE DATEDIFF (d, orderdate, getdate()) = 0 AND cardvaild ='y' ) A

I think you would have to use a union and do a subquery,

select sum(Total) from
(SELECT (select SUM(grandtotal) AS Total  FROM   dbo.savedorders  WHERE DATEDIFF (d, orderdate, getdate()) = 0 AND cardvaild ='y')  
UNION SELECT SUM(grandtotal)
FROM dbo.orders
WHERE DATEDIFF (d, orderdate, getdate()) = 0 AND cardvaild ='y') as derivedtable

thanks all, asvforce solution was 1st to appear on my screen for some reason and worked just as I needed. It took me a couple of hours getting to where I was, I see now where I went wrong with the select union I was using earlier today.

thanks for all your help
