HI

I need to perform a query from php that requests to a mysql database the sum of payments of a customer per month, I would like to know how to construct this query from php based on this table:

PAYMENTS
IdPayment, IdCustomer, PaymentDate, Amount

The query must show something like a balance since the first payment to the last one:

JANUARY 2012 (this date must be since the first payment of the customer)
IdCustomer, Total Amount Paid

FEBRUARY 2012
IdCustomer, Total Amount Paid
...

and so on.


Regards

I'm not a PHP developer but the SQL should be something like:

select date_format(PaymentDate, '%M %Y') payment_month, IdCustomer, sum(Amount)
from PAYMENTS
group by year(PaymentDate), month(PaymentDate), IdCustomer
order by year(PaymentDate), month(PaymentDate), IdCustomer

Then in your PHP code you need to track the payment_month column of the result set - if it changes it means you have a new month and so you should print whatever headers you want.

There was a similar question in the Oracle zone recently. With 'balance' the Asker there didn't mean the sum per period but the total from the start until that point in time. I submitted a solution with a subquery but there was a better solution in PL/SQL using 'partition', not sure if anything like that is available in MySQL so I'll submit my 'low-tech' solution here as well:

SELECT p1.IdCustomer, date_format(p1.PaymentDate, '%M %Y') payment_month, (SELECT SUM(Amount) FROM PAYMENTS p2 WHERE p2.IdCustomer = p1.IdCustomer AND p2.PaymentDate <= LAST_DAY(p1.PaymentDate)) balance
FROM PAYMENTS p1
GROUP BY p1.IdCustomer, payment_month
ORDER BY p1.IdCustomer, YEAR(p1.PaymentDate), MONTH(p1.PaymentDate)

For the php part, there's a lot of examples to be found on the net, like this one: http://www.anyexample.com/programming/php/php_mysql_example__display_table_as_html.xml 

Or do you need specific help, in that case please post the (relevant) code?
