Can someone tell me how to divide the results of the two "types" in this query?
I need the result to be Terminated/Budgeted.  Right now, I get this:
51314.81      Budgeted
192      Terminated

I another row to show .04% as the percentage.
SELECT  SUM(ISNULL(ApprovedHrsPerPeriod, 0)) AS Hours, 'Budgeted' AS TYPE
FROM     PpPositionDictionary
WHERE  (Payroll = 'reg') AND (Active = 'y')
UNION
SELECT  SUM(ISNULL(HoursPerPeriod, 0)) AS Hours, 'Terminated' AS TYPE
FROM     PPPEREmpPositionFields
WHERE  (StatusDate BETWEEN @From AND @Thru) AND (Status = 'TERM') AND (PositionNumber LIKE '%B')

I think that you want to do something like this, instead of union.  Just make sure both values are decimal, not integer.

SELECT 
(SELECT  SUM(ISNULL(HoursPerPeriod, 0)) AS Hours, 'Terminated' AS TYPE
FROM     PPPEREmpPositionFields
WHERE  (StatusDate BETWEEN @From AND @Thru) AND (Status = 'TERM') AND (PositionNumber LIKE '%B')) /
(SELECT  SUM(ISNULL(ApprovedHrsPerPeriod, 0)) AS Hours, 'Budgeted' AS TYPE
FROM     PpPositionDictionary
WHERE  (Payroll = 'reg') AND (Active = 'y')) AS Percentage

matthewspatrick -tried this one and get an error : Unable to parse query text...
Incorrect syntax near '/'
JestersGrind - get this error:  Only one expression can be specified in the select list when the subquery is not instroduced with EXISTS.
I am writing in Visual Studio 2005 - not sure I can use EXISTS there???
