Repeating Value

please see attached -

fig a current output (select * from o_questions) and fig B the desired output.

I would like the assessments mee_id to repeat for every row of the assessment (ASM).

So the sql needs to check the assessments avd_data value (where the anv_name = 'MEE_ID') and repeat id for every row of the assessment.

It would use partition by but I need some more help on the syntax.

thanks

try this...

S ELECT o.*,
       LAST_VALUE(CASE WHEN anv_name = 'MEE_ID' THEN avd_data END IGNORE NULLS)
           OVER (PARTITION BY asm_id ORDER BY qst_ord)
           meet_id
  FROM o_questions o

sdstuber,
Couldn't you have just used -
select o.*,
first_value(avd_data) over (partition by asm_id order by qst_ord) meet_id
from o_questions o;

yes, with the data presented in that exact form however the question said to base it on (anv_name = 'MEE_ID')    not simply first row of each partition

Gotcha,
I was just looking at the input and desired output and didn't really analyze the question.

but... what might be even better than FIRST_VALUE or LAST_VALUE is this...

MAX(CASE WHEN anv_name = 'MEE_ID' THEN avd_data END) OVER (PARTITION BY asm_id)

that way the MEE_ID can appear at any position in the partition
