Hi.. I have a table of Meter readings - I need to update a USAGE field based on the before and after reading. Also the twist is - that the Meter Names change so I need to reset and start again when the Meter Name changes.  When it starts should be zero

The Data Looks Like This:

NAME                  READING        Date               USAGE
Meter A               100                1/1
Meter A                200               1/2
Meter A                500               1/3
Meter B                300               1/1
Meter B                600               1/2

The Result should look like this

NAME                  READING        Date               USAGE
Meter A               100                1/1                     0
Meter A                200               1/2                     200
Meter A                500               1/3                     300
Meter B                300               1/1                     0
Meter B                600               1/2                     300



thx

Use a cte as follows

;with cte as
(
	select *,
		ROW_NUMBER() over (partition by meter order by readdate, meter) rn
	from YourTable
)

select meter, reading, readdate,0 [Usage]
from cte
where rn = 1
union
select A.meter, a.reading, a.readdate, b.reading - a.reading [Usage]
from cte a
inner join cte b on (a.meter = b.meter) and (b.rn = a.rn +1)

UPDATE t1 
SET USAGE = (case when t3.READING is null then 0 else t2.READING - t3.READING end )
from tablename t1 
inner join (select *, ROW_NUMBER()  over (partition by name order by date, name) rn from tablename) t2 on t1.name = t2.name and t1.date = t2.date 
left join (select *, ROW_NUMBER()  over (partition by name order by date, name) rn from tablename) t3 ON t2.name = t3.name AND t2.rn = t3.rn + 1
order by t1.date
