Group By & Sum MS SQL Query

I am not sure if I am doing this right.. but I want to write a query that can do a couple things..

I have a table with Employee ID, Date/Time and Charge amount for an employee Cafeteria.

I need to be able to query the database between two dates, say 3/1/12 and 3/15/12 and show the charges for Employee ID 1 and sum the total of purchases..

The Query to get the total is where I am running into issues.. to me this should work but it does not.

SELECT     PAYROLL.dbo.EMPLOYEE.ID, PAYROLL.dbo.EMPLOYEE.LAST_NAME, PAYROLL.dbo.EMPLOYEE.FIRST_NAME, 
                      SUM(EMP_DEDUCTIONS.CHARGE_AMOUNT) AS Total
FROM         PAYROLL.dbo.EMPLOYEE RIGHT OUTER JOIN
                      EMP_DEDUCTIONS ON PAYROLL.dbo.EMPLOYEE.ID = EMP_DEDUCTIONS.EMP_ID
GROUP BY PAYROLL.dbo.EMPLOYEE.ID, PAYROLL.dbo.EMPLOYEE.LAST_NAME, PAYROLL.dbo.EMPLOYEE.FIRST_NAME, EMP_DEDUCTIONS.VOID
HAVING      (EMP_DEDUCTIONS.VOID IS NULL) AND (PAYROLL.dbo.EMPLOYEE.ID = 'BEA01') AND (CONVERT(varchar, EMP_DEDUCTIONS.CHARGE_DATETIME, 
                      101) BETWEEN '3/1/2012' AND '3/15/2012')
ORDER BY PAYROLL.dbo.EMPLOYEE.ID

Open in new window


I get this error

Msg 8121, Level 16, State 1, Line 6
Column 'EMP_DEDUCTIONS.CHARGE_DATETIME' is invalid in the HAVING clause because it is not contained in either an aggregate function or the GROUP BY clause.
Msg 8121, Level 16, State 1, Line 6
Column 'EMP_DEDUCTIONS.CHARGE_DATETIME' is invalid in the HAVING clause because it is not contained in either an aggregate function or the GROUP BY clause.

This will ultimately be written for a web page so the employee can run a report on their purchases and get the total.

Thanks for any help.

add CHARGE_DATETIME to the group by clause:

SELECT     PAYROLL.dbo.EMPLOYEE.ID, PAYROLL.dbo.EMPLOYEE.LAST_NAME, PAYROLL.dbo.EMPLOYEE.FIRST_NAME, 
                      SUM(EMP_DEDUCTIONS.CHARGE_AMOUNT) AS Total

                      EMP_DEDUCTIONS ON PAYROLL.dbo.EMPLOYEE.ID = EMP_DEDUCTIONS.EMP_ID
GROUP BY PAYROLL.dbo.EMPLOYEE.ID, PAYROLL.dbo.EMPLOYEE.LAST_NAME, PAYROLL.dbo.EMPLOYEE.FIRST_NAME, EMP_DEDUCTIONS.VOID, EMP_DEDUCTIONS.CHARGE_DATETIME 
HAVING      (EMP_DEDUCTIONS.VOID IS NULL) AND (PAYROLL.dbo.EMPLOYEE.ID = 'BEA01') AND (CONVERT(varchar, EMP_DEDUCTIONS.CHARGE_DATETIME, 
                      101) BETWEEN '3/1/2012' AND '3/15/2012')

I don't get an error but I also get no results.  Same with just adding the other to the group by, still no results.
