Team,

Below is my query:


Declare  @Dates Varchar(255)
Set @Dates = ('WK10')

Select A.AcceptTeam, A.CreateDate, A.CharDate, a.Escalations, A.Abandons, a.Volume,  B.FiscalWk1 from
(select AcceptTeam, Convert(Datetime, CreateDate) as CreateDate
, Convert(Varchar(6), convert (datetime, CreateDate), 107) as CharDate
, count(*) Volume
, sum(case when CSIStatus = 'Escalation' then 1 else 0 end) escalations
, Sum(Case when TalismaStatus = 'Abandoned' then 1 else 0 end) Abandons
, TimeZone from Chat_Analyzed where ServiceLine = 'Celerra Support' and AcceptTeam <> 'Data Unavailable'
group by AcceptTeam, CreateDate, TimeZone) a
Inner Join
(Select FiscalDate, FiscalWK1 from reports.dbo.FiscalCalender) b
on a.CreateDate = b.FiscalDate
Where FiscalWK1 in (@Dates) and TimeZone = 'Amer'

Columns:
CSIStatus = Varchar(255)
TalismaStatus = Varchar(255)

When running the query, CSIStatus (Escalations) value is coming correctly however TalismaStatus(Abandons) is not showing any value. Just shows "0". However i do have some abandons for the running week.

Pls help

Hi,
The query looks fine to me.
Though if you are not getting the required result, then please check:
1. The CreateDate column in Chat_Analyzed is having "time" value also?
2. The FiscalDate column in FiscalCalender is also having "time" or not?

It looks that for Escalations the data entered is without time. But for Abandons it is having time also. If such a scenario exists, then you need to use
Convert(Datetime, convert(varchar, CreateDate,111) ,111) as CreateDate
instead of
Convert(Datetime, CreateDate) as CreateDate
.

If not resolved, then please show us some sample data with columns properties.

In query you have given 'Abandoned' and in Questin you asked for 'Abandons'
see which is correct and change accordingly

, Sum(Case when TalismaStatus = 'Abandons' then 1 else 0 end) Abandons

@Pratima_mcs - Spelling is correct. "Abandoned" is how the data is in the table.

@Rajeev -

CreateDate column doesnt have time value in it.

This is how the table looks

CreateDate      TalismaStatus      CSIStatus
2/27/2011      Abandoned      Cancelled
2/27/2011      Complete              Cancelled
2/27/2011      Complete              Cancelled
2/27/2011      Complete              Closed
2/27/2011      Complete              Closed
2/27/2011      Abandoned      Cancelled


All the columns are Varchar in the table.

try with like

, Sum(Case when TalismaStatus like 'Abandoned' then 1 else 0 end) Abandons

or with ltrim and rtrim .. might it will have spaces

, Sum(Case when ltrim(rtrim(TalismaStatus)) = 'Abandoned' then 1 else 0 end) Abandons

When I run the first query, "Escalations" value also getting changed.

& the second query - no difference with the original value(ie., abandoned column still a zero)
