Hello EXPERTS! What am I doing wrong on this query? I would like to be able to compute the counts column for AVG, MIN, MAX and SUM.

SELECT DATEADD(mi, -15, dtcompleted) as Timeframe, count(1) as counts

from sds (nolock)

where dtcompleted between '2006-06-26' and '2006-06-27'

group by dtcompleted

order by dtcompleted, 1

compute AVG(counts), SUM(counts), MAX(counts), MIN(counts)

Compute is used to do stuff like a subtotal when a sum is used above in the query:

Try this:

SELECT dtCompleted,AVG(counts), SUM(counts), MAX(counts), MIN(counts)
from sds (nolock)
where dtcompleted between '2006-06-26' and '2006-06-27'
group by dtcompleted

Is this what you're looking for?

WITH sds_tmp (Timeframe, counts) AS
(
  SELECT DATEADD(mi, -15, dtcompleted), count(1)
    FROM sds (nolock)
    WHERE dtcompleted between '2006-06-26' and '2006-06-27'
    GROUP BY dtcompleted
    ORDER BY dtcompleted
)
SELECT AVG(counts), SUM(counts), MAX(counts), MIN(counts)
  FROM sds_tmp

Sorry, I forgot to remove the ORDER BY clause from my previous post.

WITH sds_tmp (Timeframe, counts) AS
(
  SELECT DATEADD(mi, -15, dtcompleted), count(1)
    FROM sds (nolock)
    WHERE dtcompleted between '2006-06-26' and '2006-06-27'
    GROUP BY dtcompleted
)
SELECT AVG(counts), SUM(counts), MAX(counts), MIN(counts)
  FROM sds_tmp

You can't use the column alias in the query. Also best to avoid COMPUTE, which is deprecated. Try the following.

Notice I've changed the date range because your version would have excluded any rows with times after midnight on the 27th.

SELECT DATEADD(mi, -15, dtcompleted) as Timeframe,
 SUM(cnt) cnt,
 MIN(cnt) min_cnt,
 MAX(cnt) max_cnt,
 AVG(cnt) avg_cnt
FROM
(SELECT dtcompleted, COUNT(*) as cnt
 FROM sds
 WHERE dtcompleted >= '20060626'
  AND dtcompleted < '20060628'
 GROUP BY dtcompleted
) T
GROUP BY dtcompleted
WITH ROLLUP;

I think I mistated one little detail AARONAKIN I'm using SQL 2000 not 2005. So I can't use the WITH clause.

Ah, sorry I should have asked.  I saw that you posted in the 2005 zone, and I just assumed.  My bad.

In that case, I'd go with dportas's solution.

Again I apologize for that mistake AARONKIN. And DPORTAS everything looks good but when I run the query I get this.

Timeframe                               cnt   min_cnt    max_cnt   avg_cnt
2006-06-20  00:00:00.000        1          1                1              1


I was looking to see total total numbers for the counts. So total counts for each cnt column for the stated time period

Any ideas?

Try this then...

SELECT SUM(cnt) cnt,
 MIN(cnt) min_cnt,
 MAX(cnt) max_cnt,
 AVG(cnt) avg_cnt
FROM
(SELECT dtcompleted, COUNT(*) as cnt
 FROM sds
 WHERE dtcompleted >= '20060626'
  AND dtcompleted < '20060628'
 GROUP BY dtcompleted
) T

I think you must have run my query without the WITH ROLLUP clause. You should get the totals as well if ROLLUP is included.
