I the query below, 14) gives me a total and 15) gives me a total.

I did not write the query.  How can I now show the difference between 14) and 15), say as '16) Positions Filled' ?

Thanks
(SELECT x1.measure,

        x1.tally1 + x2.tally2 AS tally

 FROM   (SELECT '14) Total WIA positions created' AS measure,

                Sum(positionsavailable)           AS tally1

         FROM   jobtitles

         WHERE  (keyemployerid > 200910201)

                AND employername NOT LIKE '%xxx%'

                AND (employername NOT LIKE '%xx NONE xx%')

                AND (employername NOT LIKE '%zz NONE zz%')

                AND positionsavailable IS NOT NULL) x1,

        (SELECT '14) Total WIA positions created'       AS measure,

                Sum(txtworksitejobtitlepositionsnumber) AS tally2

         FROM   jobtitles

         WHERE  (keyemployerid > 200910201)

                AND employername NOT LIKE '%xxx%'

                AND (employername NOT LIKE '%zz NONE zz%')

                AND positionsavailable IS NULL) x2

 WHERE  x1.measure = x2.measure)
 

UNION

       Sum(txtworksitejobtitlepositionsnumber)    AS tally

Msg 205, Level 16, State 1, Line 2
All queries combined using a UNION, INTERSECT or EXCEPT operator must have an equal number of expressions in their target lists.

I'm not sure where to fix this...

It's probably just a character somewhere.

Msg 102, Level 15, State 1, Line 5
Incorrect syntax near 'x1'.
Msg 102, Level 15, State 1, Line 15
Incorrect syntax near 'x1'.
Msg 102, Level 15, State 1, Line 23
Incorrect syntax near 'x2'.
Msg 102, Level 15, State 1, Line 36
Incorrect syntax near ')'.

Also, I apologize, I should have remove all the garbage, "AND NOT LIKE '%xxx%'" crap that's in there just to filter out my test records.

That worked perfectly, but when I tacked it onto the bottom of the rest of the query it didn't like the " ; " after that UNION

because you cannot "UNION" a CTE query (the one that starts with "WITH") like that. You can try something like this though.

I didn't realize you could not "UNION" a CTE query (I just learned that term).

I moved that whole section to the top so it started with the CTE query (I'll still have to read more about that) and it worked fine.  Thank you again for your help!  :-)
