# Provide a SQL query that returns the user name and the total

Please provide the solution for the below query :

enclosed the script file with test data.

The table  IGBU_PROJ_RESOURCE holds information about users and their
corresponding location. Various holidays declared for each location
are stored in the table IGBU_LOC_HOLIDAY. Finally, there is a table
named IGBU_PROJ_TRACKING that holds information about the period range
during which resources worked on a project. In some case, the resource
might have worked only half-day and if so, the column half_day_flag
will have the value 'Y'. Otherwise, N is specified for full-day.
Specified period is stored in columns - start_date and end_date [both
inclusive]. In the specified date range, there may be weekends
(Saturday and Sunday) as well as declared holidays for the location
the resource belongs to.
(Some of the columns in the table are removed for keeping it simple)

Problem:  Provide a SQL query that returns the user name and the total
number of days worked on the project during the period 01-MAR-2012 and
31-MAR-2012 (both dates inclusive). Total number of days must exclude
declared holidays and weekends.

Expected Query Result
user_name            total_days
abc.user@oracle.com  6.5
mno.user@oracle.com  6.0
pqr.user@oracle.com  7.0
xyz.user@oracle.com  7.0

try this...

``````SELECT user_name,
SUM(
(tracked_days - holiday_cnt - weekend_cnt)
* CASE WHEN half_day_flag = 'Y' THEN .5 ELSE 1 END
)
total_days
FROM (SELECT user_name,
(modified_end - modified_start) + 1 tracked_days,
half_day_flag,
(SELECT COUNT(
CASE WHEN TO_CHAR(holiday_date, 'Dy') NOT IN ('Sat', 'Sun') THEN 1 END
)
FROM igbu_loc_holiday h
WHERE x.location_id = h.location_id
AND h.holiday_date BETWEEN modified_start AND modified_end)
holiday_cnt,
(SELECT COUNT(
CASE
WHEN TO_CHAR(modified_start + LEVEL - 1, 'Dy') IN ('Sat', 'Sun')
THEN
1
END
)
FROM DUAL
CONNECT BY modified_start + LEVEL - 1 <= modified_end)
weekend_cnt
FROM (SELECT r.user_name,
GREATEST(t.start_date, i.range_start) modified_start,
LEAST(t.end_date, i.range_end) modified_end,
r.location_id,
t.half_day_flag
FROM igbu_proj_resource r,
igbu_proj_tracking t,
(SELECT DATE '2012-03-01' range_start, DATE '2012-03-31' range_end FROM DUAL) i
WHERE r.user_id = t.user_id
AND t.start_date <= i.range_end
AND t.end_date >= i.range_start) x)
GROUP BY user_name
ORDER BY user_name
``````

I added checks to make sure your tracking ranges didn't extend beyond the March 1-31 input range
if that's not necessary then remove

GREATEST(t.start_date, i.range_start) modified_start,
LEAST(t.end_date, i.range_end) modified_end,

and change all references of modified_start to start_date  and all references of modified_end to end_date

and I also checked for holdays that are on weekends to make sure we don't double subtract
if that's not necessary simply  change

"CASE WHEN TO_CHAR(holiday_date, 'Dy') NOT IN ('Sat', 'Sun') THEN 1 END"
to
"*"

Can you provide the actual table data for which those results are expected?
