Hello

My original query ..
select
col1,
col2,
date_year
from table1
where date_year = '2009'

Result set

col1  col2   date_year
a      12      2009
b      14      2009

What I now want to achieve is another result set to the right but with
previous year data - I do not want to hard code this bit - how can I do this.
I only want to parameterize the year 2009
So, my result set would now be...
col1  col2   date_year  col1a  col1b     date_year
a      12      2009      a      45         2008
b      14      2009      b      16         2008

What is the correlation?

What 2009 colb goes with what 2008 colb?

More sample data and expected results would help.

Hope this makes sense..
Query 1
select
col1,
col2,
date_year
from table1
where date_year = '2009'

Result set....
col1  col2   date_year
a      12      2009
b      14      2009
..............................
Query 2
select
col1,
col2,
date_year
from table1
where date_year = '2008'
Result set....
col1  col2   date_year
a      15.5    2008
b      11      2008

So, I would like one query which could return the following data

col1  col2   date_year col1(1) col2(1)  date_year(1)
a      12      2009     a       15.5      2008
b      14      2009     b       11        2008

So for col1 there is always a one-to-one correlation across years?

On other words: for col1='a', there is only EVER a single row per year.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Try this
drop table tab1 purge;
create table tab1 (col1 char(1), col2 number, datE_year char(4));

insert into tab1 values('a',12,'2009');
insert into tab1 values('b',14,'2009');
insert into tab1 values('a',15.5,'2008');
insert into tab1 values('b',11,'2008');
commit;


select col1, col2, date_year, prev_col1, prev_col2, prev_year
from
(
select col1, col2, date_year,
	lead(col1) over(partition by col1 order by col1, date_year desc) prev_col1,
	lead(col2) over(partition by col1 order by col1, date_year desc) prev_col2,
	lead(date_year) over(partition by col1 order by date_year desc) prev_year
from tab1
)
where date_year = '2009'
/
