Hello,

I have a table, OrigTable, with 8 fields in it Field1, Field2, Field3, Field4, Field5, Field6, Field7, Field8.  I want to Sum() Field7 and Filed8 using the Group By Field1, Field2, Field3, Field4. Then insert all 8 Fields into NewTable as Field1, Field2, Field3, Field4, Field5, Field6, Field7 (sum value), Field8 (sum value).  The Unique key in NewTable is Field1, Field2, Field3, Field4.  Field5 adn Field6 could have different values but it doesn't matter which value is used the field to insert the record in NewTable.  Is this possible?

Thanks.

It should be something like this: (you also need to group by Field5 and Field6)

Select Field1, Field2, Field3, Field4, Field5, Field6, Sum(Field7) Field7Sum, Sum(Field8) Field8Sum
  Into NewTable
  From OrigTable
 Group By Field1, Field2, Field3, Field4, Field5, Field6

problem is, if you want Field1 - 4 as "unique key" in NewTable
then you must do something with Field5, Field6 as well.
for ex. pick one of the value

INSERT INTO NewTable
SELECT Field1, Field2, Field3, Field4, MIN(Field5) AS Field5, MIN(Field6) AS Field6, SUM(Field7) AS Field7, SUM(Field8) AS Field8
FROM OrigTable
GROUP BY Field1, Field2, Field3, Field4

As of your second Table Field5 and 6 are not Unique key, then in this case you have to manipulate the data of Field5 and 6 as you can not use simple Group by clause for all 6 fileds as It may casue duplicate the Field 1,2,3,4.
Now u did not mention data type of Field5 and 6 if it's numeric you can use sum() or any other function
other wise
Insert Into NewTable
Select distinct T1.Field1, T1.Field2, T1.Field3, T1.Field4,T2.Field5,T2.Field6,Field7sum,Field8Sum
(
Select Field1, Field2, Field3, Field4,  Sum(Field7) Field7Sum, Sum(Field8) Field8Sum
    From OrigTable  Group By Field1, Field2, Field3, Field4)T1
left inner Join
(Select Field1, Field2, Field3, Field4, Field5, Field6, Sum(Field7) , Sum(Field8)  
  From OrigTable  Group By Field1, Field2, Field3, Field4, Field5, Field6 )T2
on T1.Field1=T2.Field1 and T1.Field2=T2.Field2 and T1.Field3=T2.Field3 and T1.Field4=T2.Field4
