SQL Server Query Syntax

I have a table that I append to every week with the latest weeks worth of data. I have a field called Region that once in a while gets changed to a new Region. So depending on the latest weeks data I need to update ALL the other values, for a StoreID, where the Regions are different. For example

Data in table
StoreID    Region     Week
1                NE          1
2                MW         1
3                SW         1

New Data adding to the table
StoreID     Region    Week
1               NW           2
2               MW           2
3               SE             2

Now the table looks like this
StoreID    Region     Week
1                NE            1
2                MW          1
3                SW           1
1                NW           2
2                MW           2
3                SE             2

After I add the new data to the table I need to update the Regions with the latest weeks data. So, StoreID 1 - Region should be updated to NW and for StoreID 3- Region should be updated to SE. How would I go about updating all the regions to the last weeks Region? Any help would be appreciated!!

I got the Region updated for your latest data also. Are you running exactly as I ran?
declare @table table (StoreID int,    Region varchar(50),[Week] int)
insert @table values(1 ,               'NE' ,           1)
insert @table values(2 ,               'MW'  ,        1)
insert @table values(3 ,               'SW'   ,        1 )
insert @table values(1 ,               'NW'    ,       2)
insert @table values(2 ,               'MW'     ,      2)
insert @table values(3 ,               'SE'      ,       2)
insert @table values(33 ,             'MW Racks'      ,       6)
insert @table values(33 ,               'MW Racks'      ,       7)
insert @table values(33 ,               'NW/NCAL Racks'      ,   5)

;with cte as (
select *,
       ROW_NUMBER() over (partition by StoreID order by [Week] desc) rn,
       MAX([Week]) over (partition by StoreID) max_StoreID
  from @table)
update t1
   set t1.Region = t2.Region
  from @table t1
  join cte t2 on t1.StoreID = t2.StoreID 
 where t2.rn = 1 and t1.[Week] <> t2.[Week]

select * from @table
/*
StoreID	Region	Week
1	NW	1
2	MW	1
3	SE	1
1	NW	2
2	MW	2
3	SE	2
33	MW Racks	6
33	MW Racks	7
33	MW Racks	5

This is just a stab, but could you do this, how predictive is your data?

1. Add a column for date/time like a timestamp
2. Select the Region (or any fields needed) from top 3 rows ordered descending based on timestamp.
3. Collect that select into a subquesry and update other rows or all rows as needed.

UPDATE Table
SET Region = ( SELECT top 1 Region from table where StoreID = 1 order by timestamp DESC)
WHERE StoreID=1


HTH,

Couldnt I do it on the Max(Week) somehow? Id like to be able to just update all the Regions based on the 'last' weeks Region value?

Yes you could, good idea!

select top 1 from Table where StoreID=1 order by Week DESC.

There is likely an easier way to get them all also, would need some testing.

select top 3 from Table where StoreID in (1,2,3) order by Week DESC.

and then....

select top 3 from Table where StoreID in (1,2,3) order by Week DESC.

UPDATE Table TBLU
SET Region = (select top 3 from Table TBLS where StoreID in (1,2,3) order by Week DESC.)
WHERE TBLU.StoreID=TBLS.StoreID

Copy that to a TEMP table and test it first of course!

I appreciate your help with this but there has to be a better way of updating these values. I would rather use MAX(Week) instead of worrying about using order by desc because when I add the data every week I just want to be able to run an update on all the data and if there is a change then have it updated. Thanks again

try this.
;with cte as (
select *,
       ROW_NUMBER() over (partition by StoreID order by [Week] desc) rn,
       MAX([Week]) over (partition by StoreID) max_StoreID
  from your_table)
update t1
   set t1.Region = t2.Region
  from your_table t1
  join cte t2 on t1.StoreID = t2.StoreID 
 where t2.rn = 1 and t1.[Week] <> t2.[Week]

Open in new window

tested with your sample data.
declare @table table (StoreID int,    Region varchar(10),[Week] int)
insert @table values(1 ,               'NE' ,           1)
insert @table values(2 ,               'MW'  ,        1)
insert @table values(3 ,               'SW'   ,        1 )
insert @table values(1 ,               'NW'    ,       2)
insert @table values(2 ,               'MW'     ,      2)
insert @table values(3 ,               'SE'      ,       2)

But if you update the previous weeks data, you lost the history. Are you fine with that?

johnnyactionAuthor Commented:
Yes, I am only concerned with what the latest Region is. I save copies of the table every week anyway. I will test, thank you

This didnt work for my data. Every week I append data for the same store ids to the table and I need every records region for that store id to be updated with the latest weeks region. I just did a check on the table after I did the update and the first value I checked was not updated? Does this make sense? Thanks for your help

johnnyactionAuthor Commented:
To make this even easier....The last week I entered is week number 7. If I could just simply update every region by StoreID with Week 7's Region and then I could change the week number every week then that would work...What do you think?

Can you post the not working data?

This is data that is in my table right now..

Store id     Region              week
33             MW Racks            6
33             MW Racks            7
33             NW/NCAL Racks   5


Week 5 was NW/NCAL Racks prior to the update I ran. Week 6 was already MW Racks and so was Week 7. What I need is for every weeks Region to be MW Racks because that was what Week 7(Which is the latest week to be inserted) is.

Thank
