Hi All

I have the following view in sql

SELECT     (CASE WHEN dbo.itran.it_fcrate = 0 THEN (dbo.itran.it_quan * dbo.itran.it_price / 100) ELSE (dbo.itran.it_quan * dbo.itran.it_price / dbo.itran.it_fcrate / 100) END)
                      AS it_total_gbp, it_doc, it_anal, it_quan, it_qtyinv, (CASE WHEN dbo.itran.it_fcrate = 0 THEN (dbo.itran.it_quan * dbo.itran.it_price / 100)
                      ELSE (dbo.itran.it_quan * dbo.itran.it_price / dbo.itran.it_fcrate / 100) END) AS it_total_Invoice_Value
FROM         dbo.itran

what i would like to do is subtract IT_Total_Invoice_Value from IT_Total_GBP and have it on its own column called Outstanding Value.

Pretty New to sql I Am hoping that it is relatively Easy.

Thanks

John

There are two options

1. Outside your view:
select  it_total_gbp, it_doc, it_anal, it_quan, it_qtyinv, it_total_Invoice_Value, it_total_gbp - it_total_Invoice_Value  as [Outstanding Value]
from [your_view_name_here]

2. Inside your view

SELECT    
      (CASE WHEN dbo.itran.it_fcrate = 0 THEN (dbo.itran.it_quan * dbo.itran.it_price / 100) ELSE (dbo.itran.it_quan * dbo.itran.it_price / dbo.itran.it_fcrate / 100) END) AS it_total_gbp,
      it_doc, it_anal, it_quan, it_qtyinv,
      (CASE WHEN dbo.itran.it_fcrate = 0 THEN (dbo.itran.it_quan * dbo.itran.it_price / 100) ELSE (dbo.itran.it_quan * dbo.itran.it_price / dbo.itran.it_fcrate / 100) END) AS it_total_Invoice_Value,
      (CASE WHEN dbo.itran.it_fcrate = 0 THEN (dbo.itran.it_quan * dbo.itran.it_price / 100) ELSE (dbo.itran.it_quan * dbo.itran.it_price / dbo.itran.it_fcrate / 100) END) - (CASE WHEN dbo.itran.it_fcrate = 0 THEN (dbo.itran.it_quan * dbo.itran.it_price / 100) ELSE (dbo.itran.it_quan * dbo.itran.it_price / dbo.itran.it_fcrate / 100) END) as [Outstanding Value]      
FROM dbo.itran

Try this::::

SELECT     (CASE WHEN dbo.itran.it_fcrate = 0 THEN (dbo.itran.it_quan * dbo.itran.it_price / 100) ELSE (dbo.itran.it_quan * dbo.itran.it_price / dbo.itran.it_fcrate / 100) END)
                      AS it_total_gbp
                      , it_doc, it_anal, it_quan, it_qtyinv,
                      (CASE WHEN dbo.itran.it_fcrate = 0 THEN (dbo.itran.it_quan * dbo.itran.it_price / 100)
                      ELSE (dbo.itran.it_quan * dbo.itran.it_price / dbo.itran.it_fcrate / 100) END) AS it_total_Invoice_Value
((CASE WHEN dbo.itran.it_fcrate = 0 THEN (dbo.itran.it_quan * dbo.itran.it_price / 100) ELSE (dbo.itran.it_quan * dbo.itran.it_price / dbo.itran.it_fcrate / 100) END)
-                       (CASE WHEN dbo.itran.it_fcrate = 0 THEN (dbo.itran.it_quan * dbo.itran.it_price / 100)
                      ELSE (dbo.itran.it_quan * dbo.itran.it_price / dbo.itran.it_fcrate / 100) END) AS it_total_Invoice_Value) as Outstanding_Value
FROM         dbo.itran
