Combine two Oracel queries

Hi,

I just need a bit of help with the SQL.  I have two queries, and would like to combine them into once query as efficiently as possible.  The tables that I am working with are large (millions of rows) and the server is quite loaded.  Any suggestions on how to improve the efficiency of these queries is appreciated, I don't know SQL very well.

Here are two queries, they are identical except that each one returns the totals if COLUMN_D = Option_1 vs Option_2.

What I'd like is to just have one query, and have the totals for Option_1 and Option_2 (both from column_D) split into two columns.

Thank you

SELECT  trunc(CREATION_DATE) CREATED_DATE,

    CASE 
        WHEN COLUMN_A = 'xxxxxxx'
            THEN 'x'
        WHEN COLUMN_A = 'yyyyyyy'
            THEN 'y'
        ELSE 'OTHER'
    END COLUMN_A,
    
COUNT (COLUMN_D) TOTAL_1         
FROM DB.TABLE_A 

Where trunc(SYSDATE) - 1 <trunc(CREATION_DATE)
and COLUMN_D = 'OPTION_2'

group by trunc(CREATION_DATE), COLUMN_A;

SELECT   TRUNC(creation_date) created_date,
         CASE WHEN column_a = 'xxxxxxx' THEN 'x' WHEN column_a = 'yyyyyyy' THEN 'y' ELSE 'OTHER' END
             column_a,
         COUNT(CASE WHEN column_d = 'OPTION_1' THEN 1 END) total_1,
         COUNT(CASE WHEN column_d = 'OPTION_2' THEN 1 END) total_2
    FROM db.table_a
   WHERE creation_date > TRUNC(SYSDATE)  AND column_d IN ('OPTION_1', 'OPTION_2')
GROUP BY TRUNC(creation_date), column_a

Note I removed the TRUNC around creation_date in your where clause.

It's not needed and actually hurts performance if you have that column indexed

oops,  missed midnight though

creation_date > TRUNC(SYSDATE)

should be


creation_date >= TRUNC(SYSDATE)

Is there only option_1 and option_2 or are there others?

if column_d is restricted to only those 2 strings then the where clause IN condition on them isn't needed
but it shouldn't hurt to have it either

There are other options for COLUMN_D, so the IN statement is helpful.  This works perfectly.  Thank you!
