The following SQL throws the error
Cannot perform an aggregate function on an expression containing an aggregate or a subquery.

How can I fix it?


select (select sum((select countervalue from alltransaction where alltranid=t.id)) from alltransaction sub_t 

inner join client c on t.clientid = c.id inner join transactiontype r on t.transactiontypeid = r.id 

inner join account a on t.accountid = a.id where alltranid = 0 and t.clientid = '153' and trandatetime >= '2009-07-14' 

and trandatetime < '2009-07-15' and transactiontypeid in (1,2,3,4) and sub_t.currency <= t.currency 

and sub_t.transactiontypeid <= t.transactiontypeid and sub_t.id <= t.id) as Balance from alltransaction t

inner join client c on t.clientid = c.id 

inner join currency u on t.currency = u.currency inner join transactiontype r on t.transactiontypeid = r.id 

inner join account a on t.accountid = a.id where alltranid = 0 and t.clientid = '153' and trandatetime >= '2009-07-14' 

and trandatetime < '2009-07-15' and transactiontypeid in (1,2,3,4) order by [transactiontypeid] asc

How are you, please try to use TOP 1
thanks
select top 1(select sum((select countervalue from alltransaction where alltranid=t.id)) from alltransaction sub_t 

inner join client c on t.clientid = c.id inner join transactiontype r on t.transactiontypeid = r.id 

inner join account a on t.accountid = a.id where alltranid = 0 and t.clientid = '153' and trandatetime >= '2009-07-14' 

and trandatetime < '2009-07-15' and transactiontypeid in (1,2,3,4) and sub_t.currency <= t.currency 

and sub_t.transactiontypeid <= t.transactiontypeid and sub_t.id <= t.id) as Balance from alltransaction t

inner join client c on t.clientid = c.id 

inner join currency u on t.currency = u.currency inner join transactiontype r on t.transactiontypeid = r.id 

inner join account a on t.accountid = a.id where alltranid = 0 and t.clientid = '153' and trandatetime >= '2009-07-14' 

and trandatetime < '2009-07-15' and transactiontypeid in (1,2,3,4) order by [transactiontypeid] asc

Ok Try this
SELECT TOP 100 PERCENT (SELECT ( SELECT SUM(countervalue) from alltransaction where alltranid=t.id) from alltransaction sub_t  

inner join client c on t.clientid = c.id inner join transactiontype r on t.transactiontypeid = r.id 

inner join account a on t.accountid = a.id where alltranid = 0 and t.clientid = '153' and trandatetime >= '2009-07-14' 

and trandatetime < '2009-07-15' and transactiontypeid in (1,2,3,4) and sub_t.currency <= t.currency 

and sub_t.transactiontypeid <= t.transactiontypeid and sub_t.id <= t.id) as Balance from alltransaction t

inner join client c on t.clientid = c.id 

inner join currency u on t.currency = u.currency inner join transactiontype r on t.transactiontypeid = r.id 

inner join account a on t.accountid = a.id where alltranid = 0 and t.clientid = '153' and trandatetime >= '2009-07-14' 

and trandatetime < '2009-07-15' and transactiontypeid in (1,2,3,4) order by [transactiontypeid] asc

A new error:

Subquery returned more than 1 value. This is not permitted when the subquery follows =, !=, <, <= , >, >= or when the subquery is used as an expression.

I am sorry I do you understand what do you mean 'use group by in sub query to get on row result' as it is just a sum of a select query and do not has group by.
