Hello, I was wondering how I can modify the sql query I have below so that instead of setting @StatCode manully each time It would select all of the StatCodes in a table and complete the operation below for each one.

The table and field which contains the StatCode values is StatSource.StatCode.


Thanks!
Declare @StatCode int

Set @StatCode = 8

select (select COUNT(Distinct(VisitorID))+.0 

		from OutboundTraffic 

		where VisitorID in(select VisitorID 

						   from InboundTraffic 

						   where StatCode = @StatCode))/(select COUNT(*) from Stats where StatCode = @StatCode)

something like this:
SELECT s.StatCode
     , ( select COUNT(Distinct(ot.VisitorID))+.0 
            from OutboundTraffic ot 
            where ot.VisitorID in ( select it.VisitorID 
                                       from InboundTraffic it
                                       where it.StatCode = s.StatCode
                                  ) 
       ) /  (select COUNT(*) from Stats where stats.StatCode = s.StatCode) as perc
  FROM StatSource s

An approach like this may work.  May have to tweak the join type to your liking, but hopefully you get the point of the derived tables.
SELECT t1.StatCode,

	CASE ISNULL(t2.sCount, 0) WHEN 0 THEN 0 

	ELSE ISNULL(t1.oCount, 0) / t2.sCount

	END AS StatCount

FROM 

(

	SELECT i.StatCode, COUNT(Distinct(o.VisitorID))+.0 As oCount

	FROM OutboundTraffic o INNER JOIN InboundTraffic i

	ON o.VisitorID = i.VisitorID

) AS t1

INNER JOIN

(

	SELECT StatCode, COUNT(*) AS sCount 

	FROM Stats

) AS t2

ON t1.StatCode = t2.StatCode

mwvisa1: I got error:
Column 'InboundTraffic.StatCode' is invalid in the select list because it is not contained in either an aggregate function or the GROUP BY clause.

angelllll
what if (select COUNT(*) from Stats where stats.StatCode = s.StatCode) as perc = 0?

Thanks!

You'll have to account for it:

SELECT s.StatCode
     , case when (select COUNT(*) from Stats where stats.StatCode = s.StatCode)  = 0 then 0 else ( select COUNT(Distinct(ot.VisitorID))+.0
            from OutboundTraffic ot
            where ot.VisitorID in ( select it.VisitorID
                                       from InboundTraffic it
                                       where it.StatCode = s.StatCode
                                  )
       ) end /  (select COUNT(*) from Stats where stats.StatCode = s.StatCode) as perc
  FROM StatSource s

Sorry I forgot the group by statement.
SELECT t1.StatCode,

	CASE ISNULL(t2.sCount, 0) WHEN 0 THEN 0 

	ELSE ISNULL(t1.oCount, 0) / t2.sCount

	END AS StatCount

FROM 

(

	SELECT i.StatCode, COUNT(Distinct(o.VisitorID))+.0 As oCount

	FROM OutboundTraffic o INNER JOIN InboundTraffic i

	ON o.VisitorID = i.VisitorID

         GROUP BY i.StatCode

) AS t1

INNER JOIN

(

	SELECT StatCode, COUNT(*) AS sCount 

	FROM Stats

         GROUP BY StatCode

) AS t2

ON t1.StatCode = t2.StatCode

And you can change my alias StatCount to be StatPercent or something more appropriate.
