Hi all i have created the following query

SELECT     SUM(OutstandingValue) AS Sum_OutstandingValue
FROM         dbo.V_TotalBackLog
WHERE     (it_due <= '06-30-2012')

union all

SELECT     SUM(sa_trvalue) AS Sum_invoiceValue
FROM         dbo.V_InvoiceValue
WHERE     (sa_trdate >= '07-01-2011') AND (sa_trdate <= '06-30-2012')

i think i have used the wrong function basically what i want to do is to add the sum from the first query to the sum of the the secound query to give me a total figure.

i have used the union all which places both values on seperate rows i just want the one value of both added together.

SELECT Sum_OutstandingValue+Sum_invoiceValue
FROM (SELECT     SUM(OutstandingValue) AS Sum_OutstandingValue
FROM         dbo.V_TotalBackLog
WHERE     (it_due <= '06-30-2012')

union all

SELECT     SUM(sa_trvalue) AS Sum_invoiceValue
FROM         dbo.V_InvoiceValue
WHERE     (sa_trdate >= '07-01-2011') AND (sa_trdate <= '06-30-2012')) t

Sorry, my bad. You have to name both the same, so it would have to be:
SELECT SUM(Sum_OutstandingValue)
FROM (SELECT     SUM(OutstandingValue) AS Sum_OutstandingValue
FROM         dbo.V_TotalBackLog
WHERE     (it_due <= '06-30-2012')

union all

SELECT     SUM(sa_trvalue) AS Sum_OutstandingValue
FROM         dbo.V_InvoiceValue
WHERE     (sa_trdate >= '07-01-2011') AND (sa_trdate <= '06-30-2012')) t

You could try it this way:


Declare @totalValue numeric

SELECT     @totalValue = SUM(OutstandingValue) AS Sum_OutstandingValue
FROM         dbo.V_TotalBackLog
WHERE     (it_due <= '06-30-2012')

SELECT     @totalValue= @totalValue + SUM(sa_trvalue) AS Sum_invoiceValue
FROM         dbo.V_InvoiceValue
WHERE     (sa_trdate >= '07-01-2011') AND (sa_trdate <= '06-30-2012')

select  @totalValue
