SQL UNION TABLE QUESTION

I have mulptiple tables and would like to combine then

table1
Symbol shares
MSFT    100        
INTL      200      

table2
Symbol shares
MSFT    100    
INTL      200    
.
.

What would be a good way to produce a summary table that give me the following results?

Symbol  table1 table2  ...
MSFT      100      100
INTL       200      200

Thanks!

Best do it with a join:

select t1.symbol, t1.col as Table1,  t2.col as Table2
from Table1 t1
left join table2 t2 on t1.symbol = t2.symbol

In my case it is not so easy, since each table(table1, table2, table3) is produced by this sql query and it would be too complicated for me using your method to join multiple tables...

SELECT     Symbol, SUM(tradeQuantity) AS expr1
FROM         table1
WHERE     (accountNo, 9 IN
                          (SELECT     AccountNo
                            FROM         othertable
                            WHERE      (Type = 'cash'))
GROUP BY Symbol

Insert each result into a temporary table and then do your joins from there.

SELECT     Symbol, SUM(tradeQuantity) AS expr1
into #t1
FROM         table1

WHERE     (accountNo, 9 IN
                          (SELECT     AccountNo
                            FROM         othertable
                            WHERE      (Type = 'cash'))
GROUP BY Symbol


select t1.Symbol, expr1 as Table1 from
#t1 t1
join #t2 t2 on t1.Symbol = t2.symbol

You can use the PIVOT command in your generation.query

This would seem to be a good place to use a PIVOT select, such as this (you need to correct the labels, field names and perhaps some other details):

SELECT Symbol, [cash], [account], [deferred]...
FROM (
	SELECT Symbol, tradeQuantity, [type]
	FROM table1 t1
	INNER JOIN othertable AS ot
		ON ot.AccountNo = t1.AccountNo
	) AS P
PIVOT (
	SUM(tradeQuantity)
	FOR [type] IN ([cash], [account], [deferred],....)
	) AS pvt
ORDER BY Symbol

Use union all to effectively create a single table, then use GROUP BY and SUM to amalgamate results into one row per symbol, with the total of the rows from both tables.

SELECT U.Symbol, SUM(U.shares) FROM (SELECT symbol, shares from table1 UNION ALL SELECT symbol, shares from table2) AS U GROUP BY U.symbol

sorry, didn't read the question properly

;WITH CTE1 AS
(
SELECT     Symbol, SUM(tradeQuantity) AS expr1
FROM         table1
WHERE     (accountNo, 9 IN
                          (SELECT     AccountNo
                            FROM         othertable
                            WHERE      (Type = 'cash'))
GROUP BY Symbol
),
 CTE2 AS
(
SELECT     Symbol, SUM(tradeQuantity) AS expr1
FROM         table2
WHERE     (accountNo, 9 IN
                          (SELECT     AccountNo
                            FROM         othertable
                            WHERE      (Type = 'cash'))
GROUP BY Symbol
),
CTE3 AS
(
SELECT     Symbol, SUM(tradeQuantity) AS expr1
FROM         table1
WHERE     (accountNo, 9 IN
                          (SELECT     AccountNo
                            FROM         othertable
                            WHERE      (Type = 'cash'))
GROUP BY Symbol
)
SELECT U.Symbol, SUM(U.t1) as tab1, SUM(U.t2) as tab2, SUM(U.t3) as tab3 FROM
          (SELECT symbol, shares as t1, 0 as t2, 0 as t3 from CTE1
          UNION ALL
          SELECT symbol, 0 as t1, shares as t2, 0 as t3 from CTE2
          UNION ALL
          SELECT symbol, 0 as t1, 0 as t2, shares as t3 from CTE3) AS U GROUP BY U.symbol
 

use CTE's to make all your 'tables' (as many as you want), then union each query into its appropriate column and summarise
