Below is my select statement. I need to sum the three EST* columns, the the same for the thee ACT* columns, then create the difference. I must be missing something, I keep getting errors.

Help Please.


SELECT     BASE_ID, STATUS, PRODUCT_CODE, SCHED_START_DATE, EST_MATERIAL_COST, EST_LABOR_COST, EST_SERVICE_COST, ACT_MATERIAL_COST,
                      ACT_LABOR_COST, ACT_SERVICE_COST
FROM         WORK_ORDER

If you want to produce these calculations for each row then you can try the code below.

SELECT     BASE_ID, STATUS, PRODUCT_CODE, SCHED_START_DATE, (EST_MATERIAL_COST + EST_LABOR_COST + EST_SERVICE_COST) AS ESTIMATED_COST, (ACT_MATERIAL_COST +
                      ACT_LABOR_COST + ACT_SERVICE_COST) AS ACTUAL_COST, (EST_MATERIAL_COST + EST_LABOR_COST + EST_SERVICE_COST) - (ACT_MATERIAL_COST +
                      ACT_LABOR_COST + ACT_SERVICE_COST) AS DIFFERENCE  
FROM         WORK_ORDER

but if you want to produce total cost for two or more rows then you must use aggrate functions

SELECT     BASE_ID, STATUS, PRODUCT_CODE, SCHED_START_DATE, (sum(EST_MATERIAL_COST) + sum(EST_LABOR_COST) + sum(EST_SERVICE_COST)) AS ESTIMATED_COST, (sum(ACT_MATERIAL_COST) + sum(ACT_LABOR_COST) + sum(ACT_SERVICE_COST)) AS ACTUAL_COST, (sum(EST_MATERIAL_COST) + sum(EST_LABOR_COST) + sum(EST_SERVICE_COST)) - (sum((ACT_MATERIAL_COST) +
                      sum(ACT_LABOR_COST) + sum(ACT_SERVICE_COST)) AS DIFFERENCE  
FROM         WORK_ORDER
WHERE some condition
GROUP BY  BASE_ID, STATUS, PRODUCT_CODE, SCHED_START_DATE
