hi,

Can someone help me with nesting 2 select statements.  I need to use them in a procedure.
So here are the 2 select statements i first made using views.

Setup_Process_A_01B_View_All_No (this is the first view)

SELECT     CustomerNumber, MIN(StationNum) AS Expr1, ShowForDashboard
FROM         dbo.StationSetupCharacteristics
GROUP BY CustomerNumber, ShowForDashboard
HAVING      (CustomerNumber = N'100003-1-01-01-100001') AND (ShowForDashboard = N'No') AND (MIN(StationNum) = 1 OR
                      MIN(StationNum) = 2 OR
                      MIN(StationNum) = 3 OR
                      MIN(StationNum) = 4 OR
                      MIN(StationNum) = 5 OR
                      MIN(StationNum) = 6 OR
                      MIN(StationNum) = 7 OR
                      MIN(StationNum) = 8 OR
                      MIN(StationNum) = 9 OR
                      MIN(StationNum) = 10)

So i would like to nest the above inside the below select.

SELECT     dbo.StationSetupCharacteristics.CustomerNumber, dbo.StationSetupCharacteristics.StationNum, dbo.StationSetupCharacteristics.[Station Name],
                      dbo.StationSetupCharacteristics.StationGivenName
FROM         dbo.Setup_Process_A_01B_View_All_No INNER JOIN

dbo.StationSetupCharacteristics ON dbo.Setup_Process_A_01B_View_All_No.CustomerNumber = dbo.StationSetupCharacteristics.CustomerNumber AND
                      dbo.Setup_Process_A_01B_View_All_No.Expr1 = dbo.StationSetupCharacteristics.StationNum

Thanks

Hi,
If u want results from bothe query  then use union as below :

SELECT     CustomerNumber, MIN(StationNum) AS Expr1, ShowForDashboard
FROM         dbo.StationSetupCharacteristics
GROUP BY CustomerNumber, ShowForDashboard
HAVING      (CustomerNumber = N'100003-1-01-01-100001') AND (ShowForDashboard = N'No') AND (MIN(StationNum) = 1 OR
                      MIN(StationNum) = 2 OR
                      MIN(StationNum) = 3 OR
                      MIN(StationNum) = 4 OR
                      MIN(StationNum) = 5 OR
                      MIN(StationNum) = 6 OR
                      MIN(StationNum) = 7 OR
                      MIN(StationNum) = 8 OR
                      MIN(StationNum) = 9 OR
                      MIN(StationNum) = 10)


UNION



SELECT     dbo.StationSetupCharacteristics.CustomerNumber, dbo.StationSetupCharacteristics.StationNum, dbo.StationSetupCharacteristics.[Station Name],
                      dbo.StationSetupCharacteristics.StationGivenName
FROM         dbo.Setup_Process_A_01B_View_All_No INNER JOIN

dbo.StationSetupCharacteristics ON dbo.Setup_Process_A_01B_View_All_No.CustomerNumber = dbo.StationSetupCharacteristics.CustomerNumber AND
                      dbo.Setup_Process_A_01B_View_All_No.Expr1 = dbo.StationSetupCharacteristics.StationNum

That will not work for me, because the second query is reffereing to the first one by name. -  Setup_Process_A_01B_View_All_No.

I need to have this all in a procedure without any views.  that is why i thought a nested select statement might work.

Thanks

Hi pls check this



SELECT     dbo.StationSetupCharacteristics.CustomerNumber, dbo.StationSetupCharacteristics.StationNum, dbo.StationSetupCharacteristics.[Station Name],
                      dbo.StationSetupCharacteristics.StationGivenName
FROM        

dbo.StationSetupCharacteristics
INNER JOIN (SELECT     CustomerNumber, MIN(StationNum) AS Expr1, ShowForDashboard
FROM         dbo.StationSetupCharacteristics
GROUP BY CustomerNumber, ShowForDashboard
HAVING      (CustomerNumber = N'100003-1-01-01-100001') AND (ShowForDashboard = N'No') AND (MIN(StationNum) = 1 OR
                      MIN(StationNum) = 2 OR
                      MIN(StationNum) = 3 OR
                      MIN(StationNum) = 4 OR
                      MIN(StationNum) = 5 OR
                      MIN(StationNum) = 6 OR
                      MIN(StationNum) = 7 OR
                      MIN(StationNum) = 8 OR
                      MIN(StationNum) = 9 OR
                      MIN(StationNum) = 10)
) as t

For your specific query, PLEASE do not use a HAVING clause to filter on columns that you can equally filter using WHERE.
WHERE will always be faster.
This is the equivalent of your query, much simpler

      SELECT  CustomerNumber, MIN(StationNum) AS Expr1, ShowForDashboard
      FROM    dbo.StationSetupCharacteristics
      WHERE   (CustomerNumber = N'100003-1-01-01-100001') AND (ShowForDashboard = N'No')
      --GROUP BY CustomerNumber, ShowForDashboard -- the filter ensures only one group
      HAVING MIN(StationNum) between 1 and 10

You plug it in exactly where you had the view:

SELECT B.CustomerNumber, B.StationNum, B.[Station Name], B.StationGivenName
FROM (
      SELECT  CustomerNumber, MIN(StationNum) AS Expr1, ShowForDashboard
      FROM    dbo.StationSetupCharacteristics
      WHERE   (CustomerNumber = N'100003-1-01-01-100001') AND (ShowForDashboard = N'No')
      --GROUP BY CustomerNumber, ShowForDashboard -- the filter ensures only one group
      HAVING MIN(StationNum) between 1 and 10
) A
INNER JOIN dbo.StationSetupCharacteristics B
      ON A.CustomerNumber = B.CustomerNumber AND A.Expr1 = B.StationNum

For a general form if you required more Customers, then

SELECT B.CustomerNumber, B.StationNum, B.[Station Name], B.StationGivenName
FROM (
      SELECT  CustomerNumber, MIN(StationNum) AS Expr1--, ShowForDashboard -- last one is unused
      FROM    dbo.StationSetupCharacteristics
      --WHERE   (CustomerNumber = N'100003-1-01-01-100001') AND (ShowForDashboard = N'No')
      GROUP BY CustomerNumber, ShowForDashboard
      HAVING MIN(StationNum) between 1 and 10
) A
INNER JOIN dbo.StationSetupCharacteristics B
      ON A.CustomerNumber = B.CustomerNumber AND A.Expr1 = B.StationNum
