I am working on developing a query against Microsoft Project Server database.  I want the ability to calculate the amount of hours an individual will be working within a given period of time.  I've developed the code noted below. and it works, for the most part.  

However, as you will see, if a 'resource' has multiple tasks during that week, it will return that resource multiple times.  I was to return only 1 row for each individuals.

Here's what I need:
Resource Name                     Work Sum
V                                                44
W                                                20
M                                                14
B                                                 0

Can someone assist?
SELECT     MSP_EpmAssignment.AssignmentStartDate, MSP_EpmAssignment.AssignmentFinishDate, SUM(MSP_EpmAssignmentByDay_UserView.AssignmentWork) 
                      AS WorkSum, MSP_EpmResource_UserView.ResourceName
FROM         MSP_EpmAssignmentByDay_UserView INNER JOIN
                      MSP_EpmProject_UserView ON MSP_EpmAssignmentByDay_UserView.ProjectUID = MSP_EpmProject_UserView.ProjectUID INNER JOIN
                      MSP_EpmTask_UserView ON MSP_EpmAssignmentByDay_UserView.ProjectUID = MSP_EpmTask_UserView.ProjectUID AND 
                      MSP_EpmAssignmentByDay_UserView.TaskUID = MSP_EpmTask_UserView.TaskUID INNER JOIN
                      MSP_EpmAssignment ON MSP_EpmAssignmentByDay_UserView.AssignmentUID = MSP_EpmAssignment.AssignmentUID AND 
                      MSP_EpmAssignmentByDay_UserView.ProjectUID = MSP_EpmAssignment.ProjectUID AND 
                      MSP_EpmAssignmentByDay_UserView.TaskUID = MSP_EpmAssignment.TaskUID INNER JOIN
                      MSP_EpmResource_UserView ON MSP_EpmAssignment.ResourceUID = MSP_EpmResource_UserView.ResourceUID
GROUP BY MSP_EpmAssignment.AssignmentStartDate, MSP_EpmAssignment.AssignmentFinishDate, MSP_EpmResource_UserView.ResourceName
HAVING      (MSP_EpmAssignment.AssignmentStartDate >= CONVERT(DATETIME, '2011-08-28 00:00:00', 102)) AND 
                      (MSP_EpmAssignment.AssignmentFinishDate <= CONVERT(DATETIME, '2011-09-04 00:00:00', 102)) AND 
                      (NOT (MSP_EpmResource_UserView.ResourceName IS NULL))

Your problem is not the multiple tasks, but rather more clearly, the multiple start and finish dates.

You can build a table of weeks, and join to that table where assignment start and end date are withing that week, and group on week.

group on week instead of assignment start and end date i mean.

So that might look like

TableWeeks

Week                                       Start            End
2011-09-04 to 2011-09-10      2011-09-04  2011-09-10
etc.


Select Week, Sum(Amount) from tasks
inner join TablesWeek
on tasks.assigment_start  >= Week.Start
and task.assignment_end <= week.end


However, this will be a problem when an assignment lasts longer than a week, so maybe you only want to worry about the week start date only and call it WeekStarted.

Shoot, I should also add into that, that even if it is just weekstart, you also have to say that assignment start less than weekend, and if it is definitively in a week, then also assignment end must be > week.start.

Only care about week start:
Select Week, Sum(Amount) from tasks
inner join TablesWeek
on tasks.assigment_Start  >= Week.Start
and task.assignment_Start <= week.end

Must lie in a week:
Select Week, Sum(Amount) from tasks
inner join TablesWeek
on tasks.assigment_Start  >= Week.Start
and task.assignment_Start <= week.end
and tasks.assigment_End  >= Week.Start
and task.assignment_End <= week.end
