I want to make a subtotal colum that would consist of the last value from the subtotal plus the actual row value from 'qtd_venda'.

Example:

qtd_venda , subtotal

20, 20
20, 40
20, 60
35, 95
10, 105

Thanks.
SELECT NF.nro_nota, VI.qtd_venda
FROM SCGE_venda_item_tb VI 
    LEFT JOIN SCGE_venda_tb V ON V.id_venda = VI.id_venda
    LEFT JOIN SCGE_nota_fiscal_tb NF ON NF.id_venda = VI.id_venda

So a running total?

The problem I can see with your query is that your subtotal comes from VI but your first column comes from NF which is in the right part of a left outer join.  You will end up with ALL items without nf.nro_nota being grouped into one.

I need to know the order in which your records appear.  You can't give a running total without knowing the order in which the records should appear.  Is there a date column, or an ID column somewhere?  

It's an easy query once I have that.

Actually I solved this problem creating a function to calc on-the-fly the running total. Don´t know if it is the best solution or the best one, but solved my problem.

Oh and the order is by nro_nota
GO
CREATE FUNCTION dbo.Calc_Subtotal (@nNota int)
RETURNS int
 BEGIN
   RETURN (
   SELECT SUM(VI.qtd_venda)
     FROM SCGE_venda_item_tb VI 
       LEFT JOIN SCGE_venda_tb V ON V.id_venda = VI.id_venda
       LEFT JOIN SCGE_nota_fiscal_tb NF ON NF.id_venda = VI.id_venda
   WHERE NF.nro_nota <= @nNota)
 END;
GO
SELECT NF.nro_nota, VI.qtd_venda, dbo.Calc_Subtotal(NF.nro_nota) as Subtotal
FROM SCGE_venda_item_tb VI 
    LEFT JOIN SCGE_venda_tb V ON V.id_venda = VI.id_venda
    LEFT JOIN SCGE_nota_fiscal_tb NF ON NF.id_venda = VI.id_venda
GO
DROP FUNCTION Calc_Subtotal;

Will that really do what you want?  You have no filtering to say what records in vi or v should be summed.  This will sum all records with a lower scge_nota_fiscal_tb.nro_nota value.

This is along the lines of what I was going to do, without a function though, but I needed to know what field was the "sorting field" which appears to be scge_nota_fiscal_tb.nro_nota.

I think that http:#22851562 points out that the query has a problem in that it's not limiting to the original join criteria.  The author never posted back about this, but I'm sure of it.
