I have a table, in which dataentry is done from 48 locations field is district which are inside some states and those further belong to field called source.
The hierarchy is State,District,Source
In short,
There are 7 states, 48 districts and 3 source
I want to pick up the count  of dataentry done on date range basis and cumulative till to date.
The problem is how to pick those records from district where 0 data entry was done.
Output i need is as follows
State   District  Source   Date Entry Done Cumulative

I am using the following to get the date range data.
select state,district,source,count(*)
from mstchvs where flagr=1 and rfeeddate between '2012-3-1' and '2012-3-31'
group by state,district,source
order by 1,2,3

select state,district,source,count(*)
from mstchvs where flagr=1 and rfeeddate<='2012-3-31'
group by state,district,source
order by 1,2,3

The sample data is attached.

If I understand you need to report all State,District combinations even if there is no record in selected range (it is report 0 for it).

You have to join your table to "list" table of districts. Something as this:

select DistricstTable.state,DistricstTable.district,source,count(*)
from DistricstTable
left join mstchvs 
ON DistricstTable.state=mstchvs.state and DistricstTable.district=mstchvs.district
where flagr=1 and rfeeddate<='2012-3-31'
group by DistricstTable.state,DistricstTable.district,source
order by 1,2,3

You can use physical DistrictsTable or construct it from your data if it is possible.

Thats done, but how to get the data within range.
Example if to a query 2 dates are there fromdate and todate
The output shoud be
State District Source Total (Within between dates) Cumulativetotal(Till todate)

I understand now. You need both aggregates in one query.

For this you should use "CASED" counts.
Something like this:
select state,district,source,
count(
       CASE 
         WHEN rfeeddate between '2012-3-1' and '2012-3-31' THEN 1 
         ELSE NULL 
       END) as cnt,
count(
       CASE 
         WHEN rfeeddate<='2012-3-31' THEN 1 
         ELSE NULL 
       END) as cntTill
from mstchvs where flagr=1 and 
group by state,district,source
order by 1,2,3

Note:
Do not use date literals in form 'YYYY-MM-DD' or other locale dependent form. Parsing of literals is dependent on language settings of connection. It can cause problems.

Only safe form is ISO date exact 'YYYYMMDD'. This is language neutral.

Great, now is it further possible to append the further data for same condition of dates.
and same base data, i.e state,district,source
from other tables like t1 and t2.

The idea is i want to generate the consolidated report from all the tables in horizontal output.

If you want partitioned results you should look on window agregate functions also:
COUNT() OVER (PARTITION BY <>)  see syntax in help.
