Hey

How do i add multiple rows to get a total that i can insert into a diffrent table eg

If i have a table called stat with the structure:

Uid Votes  Views
1     4         5
1     5        5
1     5       5
2     6      6
2     5     6

how can i use SQL to add up the rows and  insert them into another table.

Ie

Ranktable

Uid  Votes  Views
1     14         15
2    11          12


Thanks

Aaron:)

Pls try this

insert into Ranktable values (select sum(Uid) as Uid,sum(Votes) Votes, sum(Views) Views from stat )

Err - surely you forgot a group by clause?

Actually you are not grouping in that statement. The statement would be:

insert into Ranktable values (select Uid, sum(Votes) Votes, sum(Views) Views from stat group by Uid)

Do you really need an actual Ranktable table? I would just use CJ_S query in a view...because as a separate table, think of this scenario:
1. Record gets inserted into stat table for uid = 1
2. insert into Ranktable
repeat steps 1 and 2 a few times

Ranktable is now inaccurate for uid = 1 unless you
1. Delete from Ranktable before you do the insert every time...or
2. Have some kind of autonumber field and query Ranktable with a MAX autonumber where uid = 1 or something....why not just use a view?

CREATE VIEW dbo.Ranktable
AS
SELECT     Uid, SUM(Votes) AS TotalVotes, SUM(Views) AS TotalViews
FROM         dbo.stat
GROUP BY Uid

Then when you do:
SELECT * FROM Ranktable
it would be accurate
