I have the below query which shows totals for the month. Question is how do I show the month in a fourth column with the actual month. (Saying like "January" for example). Any help would be greatly appreciated.


SELECT     COUNT(studyTbl.studyid_i) as study_count, companyTbl.companyname_vc
FROM         physicianTbl INNER JOIN
                      companyTbl ON physicianTbl.companyid_i = companyTbl.companyid_i INNER JOIN
                      studyTbl ON physicianTbl.physicianid_i = studyTbl.primarycarephysicianid_i
 GROUP BY Month(studydt_dt) , companyTbl.companyname_vc

ewangoya:

add a MIN() on the studydt_dt if you want to make it work.

or group on DATENAME(MONTH, studydt_dt) instead of grouping on Month(studydt_dt)


 
SELECT     COUNT(studyTbl.studyid_i) as study_count, companyTbl.companyname_vc, DATENAME(MONTH, studydt_dt) [Month]
FROM         physicianTbl INNER JOIN
                      companyTbl ON physicianTbl.companyid_i = companyTbl.companyid_i INNER JOIN
                      studyTbl ON physicianTbl.physicianid_i = studyTbl.primarycarephysicianid_i
 GROUP BY DATENAME(MONTH, studydt_dt) , companyTbl.companyname_vc

also make sure that you understand that if you have 2 year of data in you table, you will receive the count of January 2010 and January 2011 on the same row, normally you should group by "year and month".
