SQL Syntax

I have a table that I need to write a report off of. It has 2 columns Sales and LYSales. I need to show the value of Sales for the parameter used for the week but I also need to SUM Sales and LYSales for the month(every record has a week and month field). So for instance I have this query to bring back the data I need for Sales and LYSales

Select StoreID, Store, SUM(Sales), SUM(LYSales)
from tableA
Where week = '42'
GROUP BY StoreID, Store

How could I get the all the Sales and LYSales for the month and not just the week. I was thinking a UDF that I pass in the StoreID and the Month to return the SUM for the month just not exactly sure how to do it? Or is there an easier way to extarct the Months Sales in the same query above?

Any help???

You could do something like this (I assume you have a date field associated with each sale...):

Select StoreID, Store, SUM(CASE WHEN date <= monthstart and date >= monthend THEN Sales ELSE 0 END), SUM(CASE WHEN date >=yearstart and date <= yearend THEN LYSales ELSE 0)
from tableA
GROUP BY StoreID, Store

I notice I missed the week requirement, in which case add SUM(CASE WHEN week = '42' THEN Sales ELSE 0 END)

Also, I missed END at the end of the second CASE statement above.

In that case, to get week 42:


Select StoreID, Store, SUM(CASE WHEN week = '42' THEN Sales ELSE 0 END) as current_week, SUM(CASE WHEN week = '42' THEN LYSales ELSE 0 END) as last_year_week, SUM(CASE WHEN MONTH = '10' THEN Sales ELSE 0 END) as current_month, SUM(CASE WHEN MONTH='10' THEN LYSales ELSE 0 END) as last_year_month
from tableA
GROUP BY StoreID, Store

Only problem would be is that the week would be the only parameter. So a 42 wuold be passed in and I would have to come up with the number for Sales for that week, figure out what month it is and get the Sum of Sales for the month

Try this
SELECT week.StoreID, week.Store, week.sl as current_week, week.lsl as last_year_week, month.sl as current_month, month.lsl as last_year_month

FROM 

(SELECT StoreID, Store, month, SUM(sales) as sl, SUM(LYSales) as lsl FROM tableA WHERE week ='42' GROUP BY StoreID, Store, month) as week, (SELECT StoreID, Store, month, SUM(sales) as sl, SUM(LYSales) as lsl FROM tableA GROUP BY StoreID, Store, month) as month

WHERE week.StoreID = month.StoreID AND week.month = month.month
