SQL Select query having a table input for a condition

Hello,

In SQL SERVER 2008 I have a table called [Trips].

Select [iVehicleID],SUM(fTripDistance) AS KM
  FROM Trips
  WHERE [iVehicleID]=5 
and [dtDateTime]>='2011-11-17 19:01:46.300'
  GROUP BY [iVehicleID]

Open in new window

Results:
iVehicleID      KM
5                    9972

I have another table called [Conditions] where the vehicleID only appears once:

SELECT [iVehicleID],[dtDateTime]
  FROM [Conditions]

Open in new window

Results:
iVehicleID      dtDateTime
2                      2012-03-15 17:52:17.020
3                      2012-03-16 00:08:52.077
4                      2012-03-15 20:03:59.020
5                      2011-11-17 19:01:46.300
6                      2012-03-15 19:09:44.020

Question:

Conceptually, I'd like to do the following:

Select [iVehicleID],SUM(fTripDistance) AS KM
  FROM Trips
  
WHERE [iVehicleID]=(SELECT [iVehicleID] FROM [Conditions])

and [dtDateTime]>=(SELECT [dtDateTime] FROM [Conditions])

  GROUP BY [iVehicleID]

Open in new window


obviously, this is not allowed:
Subquery returned more than 1 value. This is not permitted when the subquery follows =, !=, <, <= , >, >= or when the subquery is used as an expression.

but how can I make this work and such that one record is returned for each row in [Conditions]:

Final Expected results:
iVehicleID      KM
2                    8974
3                    2654
4                    8954
5                    9972
6                    8564


Thanks in advanced

I believe this is what you want...

SELECT T.iVehicleID, SUM(T.fTripDistance) AS KM
FROM [Trips] T
INNER JOIN [Conditions] C
ON T.iVehicleID = C.iVehicleID
GROUP BY T.iVehicleID

thanks for the response.  I think you meant to Group by T.iVehicleID instead of SUM(T.fTripDistance).

Having done so the query works but how is the dtDatetime condition met?

tnx

Lol...yes, I saw that and fixed it right before you posted...  :)

Added the date/time condition...

SELECT T.iVehicleID, SUM(T.fTripDistance) AS KM
FROM [Trips] T
INNER JOIN [Conditions] C
ON T.iVehicleID = C.iVehicleID
WHERE [C.dtDateTime]>='2011-11-17 19:01:46.300'
GROUP BY T.iVehicleID

Yes you fixed the Group by but I still have the issue of satisfying the second condition:

and [dtDateTime]>= {the  [dtDateTime] in the Conditions table for that iVehicleid}

sequel_prequelAuthor Commented:
haha, no prob. but still not what I need.  The dtDatetime is not constant it needs to be the dtDatetime in the Conditions table:

iVehicleID      dtDateTime
2                      2012-03-15 17:52:17.020
3                      2012-03-16 00:08:52.077
4                      2012-03-15 20:03:59.020
5                      2011-11-17 19:01:46.300
6                      2012-03-15 19:09:44.020

For this example if I was to do things the long way:

Select * FROM
(

Select [iVehicleID],SUM(fTripDistance) AS KM
  FROM Trips
  
WHERE [iVehicleID]=2

and [dtDateTime]>='2012-03-15 17:52:17.020'

  GROUP BY [iVehicleID]
) a

UNION ALL

SELECT * FROM

(

Select [iVehicleID],SUM(fTripDistance) AS KM
  FROM Trips
  
WHERE [iVehicleID]=3

and [dtDateTime]>='2012-03-16 00:08:52.077'

  GROUP BY [iVehicleID]

) as b

.

ah...i think I understand now. You need a subquery - not a join...

SELECT A.iVehicleID, (SELECT SUM(fTripDistance) from [Trips] B 
			where B.iVehicleID = A.iVehicleID
			and B.dtDateTime >= A.dtDateTime) AS KM
FROM [Conditions] A

Sure let me clarify.  Yes the Trips table does have a dtDatetime field.  Here is what the trips table will look like

iVehicleID,   dtDateTime,                      fTripDistance
3               2011-11-16 19:01:46.300    100
5               2011-11-17 19:01:46.300    200
3               2011-11-18 19:01:46.300    100
3               2011-11-19 19:01:46.300    200
5               2011-11-20 19:01:46.300    100
....

From my original post:
Select [iVehicleID],SUM(fTripDistance) AS KM
  FROM Trips
  WHERE [iVehicleID]=5 
and [dtDateTime]>='2011-11-17 19:01:46.300'
  GROUP BY [iVehicleID]

Open in new window


The above gives me the total KMs traveled by the vehicleid 5 since '2011-11-17 19:01:46.300'.  For results I get say [5, 9972] (see first post).


Now I have the Conditions table which is unique by vehicleid.  

iVehicleID      dtDateTime
2                      2012-03-15 17:52:17.020
3                      2012-03-16 00:08:52.077
4                      2012-03-15 20:03:59.020
5                      2011-11-17 19:01:46.300
6                      2012-03-15 19:09:44.020


What I want is the total KMs traveled by each vehcile in the Conditions table but the KMs added should only be since the Trips.dtDateTime>=Conditons.dtDateTime.

but... I just tried something working off your suggestion and it seemed to work :)

  SELECT T.iVehicleID, SUM(T.fTripDistance) AS KM

FROM [Trips] T

INNER JOIN [Conditions] C

ON T.iVehicleID = C.iVehicleID

AND T.dtDateTime>=C.dtDateTime

GROUP BY T.iVehicleID

Open in new window


I think the using WHERE instead of ANDing the innerjoin also works:

 SELECT T.iVehicleID, SUM(T.fTripDistance) AS KM

FROM [Trips] T

INNER JOIN [Conditions] C

ON T.iVehicleID = C.iVehicleID

WHERE T.dtDateTime>=C.dtDateTime

GROUP BY T.iVehicleID

ha - I thought I had changed my previous comment fast enough before you actually saw it. O well... I think i understand now what you are asking. My previous post should be what you need. I hope...

Perfect. I like your's better as it returns all rows in Condition table where mine only returns the rows where the condition is satisfied. Thanks for your help.
