Hi,
I am trying to write sql to find the info based on a particular field, grouped by date (quarter)
The sql works fine but I have two more points,
1. Be able to add the DatePart(year, date) to the date columns - so that we know which year quarter it is
As you can see in below code it would be adding 2010 q1 + 2011 q1
Need to get over that
First is most important
2. Is there any way,
That I could change the above sql to have count(MAN) for multiple models?
Displayed as this model had count = this - in particular quarter
select DatePart(quarter, date) as date1,  count(MAN)
from table
where DatePart(year, date) >= '2010'
and model = 'Particular'
group by DatePart(quarter, date)

please try this:
select model, DatePart(year, date), DatePart(quarter, date) as date1,  count(MAN)
from table
where DatePart(year, date) >= 2010
group by model, DatePart(year, date), DatePart(quarter, date)

thanks angel. But issue is to have done somthing like
DatePart(quarter, date) + '/' + DatePart(year, date)
Problem rises when it comes to the data conversion related issue

you mean:
select model
, cast(DatePart(year, date) as varchar(10)) + '/' + cast( DatePart(quarter, date) as varchar(10)) as date1,  count(MAN)
from table
where DatePart(year, date) >= 2010
group by model, cast(DatePart(year, date) as varchar(10)) + '/' + cast( DatePart(quarter, date) as varchar(10))
