Hello all,
sorry for my query, it's a long one

basically it consists of 2 select statements on 2 tables, each select statement gets the top 10 and self join it to the rest 90 as others.

now I need to join the 2 statements together full join, as there's of course different top 10s in each of them.

here's my query but it gives me weird results !! only results from the second statement and 3 NULL columns !!

please tell me if sample data is needed.

SELECT a.[Service Code]
, a.[Department Total]
, a.[Percentage]
from
(SELECT [Service Code]
, [Department Total]
, [Percentage]
from(
SELECT TOP 10
[Service Code]
,Sum([Total Charges]) AS [Department Total]
,Sum([Total Charges])/(Select SUM([Total Charges]) from [ExctemedDB].[dbo].[XACTIMED-COMM] Where [Fac Name] like '%Michaels%') AS [Percentage]
from dbo.[XACTIMED-COMM]
Where [Fac Name] like '%Michaels%'
GROUP BY
[Service Code]
ORDER BY
[Department Total] DESC
) AS Q1
UNION ALL
SELECT
'Other' AS [Service Code]
,Sum([Total Charges]) AS [Department Total]
,Sum([Total Charges])/(Select SUM([Total Charges]) from [ExctemedDB].[dbo].[XACTIMED-COMM]) AS [Percentage]
from dbo.[XACTIMED-COMM]
Where [Fac Name] like '%Michaels%'
and
[Service Code] NOT IN (SELECT TOP 10
[Service Code]
from dbo.[XACTIMED-COMM]
Where [Fac Name] like '%Michaels%'
GROUP BY
[Service Code]
ORDER BY
Sum([Total Charges]) DESC))a


full join



(SELECT [Service Code]
, [Department Total]
, [Percentage]
from(
SELECT TOP 10
[Service Code]
,Sum([Total Charges]) AS [Department Total]
,Sum([Total Charges])/(Select SUM([Total Charges]) from [ExctemedDB].[dbo].[XACTIMED-CARE] Where [Fac Name] like '%Michaels%') AS [Percentage]
from dbo.[XACTIMED-CARE]
Where [Fac Name] like '%Michaels%'
GROUP BY
[Service Code]
ORDER BY
[Department Total] DESC
) AS Q2
UNION ALL
SELECT
'Other' AS [Service Code]
,Sum([Total Charges]) AS [Department Total]
,Sum([Total Charges])/(Select SUM([Total Charges]) from [ExctemedDB].[dbo].[XACTIMED-CARE]) AS [Percentage]
from dbo.[XACTIMED-CARE]
Where [Fac Name] like '%Michaels%'
and
[Service Code] NOT IN (SELECT TOP 10
[Service Code]
from dbo.[XACTIMED-CARE]
Where [Fac Name] like '%Michaels%'
GROUP BY
[Service Code]
ORDER BY
Sum([Total Charges]) DESC))d

on d.[Service Code] = a.[Service Code]

Could you please state your requirement? Do the individual statements produce expected results?

If it is combining the results of the 2 separate queries, then you should do a UNION of the statements instead of JOIN.

So do you want to sum the totals, [Service Code] wise, from both statements?
What about 'Other'? Do you want a single row with combined totals?

Please try the attached query.
It can be cleaned up quite a bit (percentage values from inner queries can be removed).

Please try the attached query.
The idea is to combine the results of the 4 inner SELECT statements and apply grouping on the resultset.

My bad, I didn't validate the syntax.

Please try with this. I have modified the query to return the top 10 departments that have a combined higher total and an additional row with the accumulated total for all other departments.
SELECT [Service Code], [Department Total]
FROM
(
    SELECT TOP 10 [Service Code], SUM([Total Charges]) AS [Department Total]
        , SUM([Total Charges])/(Select SUM([Total Charges]) from [ExctemedDB].[dbo].[XACTIMED-COMM] Where [Fac Name] like '%Michaels%') + (Select SUM([Total Charges]) from [ExctemedDB].[dbo].[XACTIMED-CARE] Where [Fac Name] like '%Michaels%') AS [Percentage]
    FROM
    (
        SELECT [Service Code], [Total Charges]
        from dbo.[XACTIMED-COMM]
        Where [Fac Name] like '%Michaels%'
        union all
        SELECT [Service Code], [Total Charges]
        from dbo.[XACTIMED-CARE]
        Where [Fac Name] like '%Michaels%'
    ) AS ALL_DEPT
    GROUP BY [Service Code]
    ORDER BY [Department Total] DESC
) AS TOP_TEN

UNION ALL

SELECT 'Other' [Service Code], SUM([Total Charges]) AS [Department Total]
    , SUM([Total Charges])/(Select SUM([Total Charges]) from [ExctemedDB].[dbo].[XACTIMED-COMM] Where [Fac Name] like '%Michaels%') + (Select SUM([Total Charges]) from [ExctemedDB].[dbo].[XACTIMED-CARE] Where [Fac Name] like '%Michaels%') AS [Percentage]
FROM
(
    SELECT [Service Code], [Total Charges]
    from dbo.[XACTIMED-COMM]
    Where [Fac Name] like '%Michaels%'
    union all
    SELECT [Service Code], [Total Charges]
    from dbo.[XACTIMED-CARE]
    Where [Fac Name] like '%Michaels%'
) AS ALL_DEPT
WHERE [Service Code] NOT IN (
    SELECT TOP 10 [Service Code]
    FROM
    (
        SELECT [Service Code], [Total Charges]
        from dbo.[XACTIMED-COMM]
        Where [Fac Name] like '%Michaels%'
        union all
        SELECT [Service Code], [Total Charges]
        from dbo.[XACTIMED-CARE]
        Where [Fac Name] like '%Michaels%'
    ) AS ALL_DEPT
    GROUP BY [Service Code]
    ORDER BY [Department Total] DESC
)
