Hello,
I use below code, I'm having a problem adding a case statement.

                           WHEN 2      THEN '02-X2'                          
                           WHEN 3      THEN '03-X3'                        
                                   Else ''
                  end

Select emp_id, (Select DepartmentCode from Employees WHERE Employees.EmployeesId = hours_detail.emp_id) AS [Department],
(Select FirstName from Employees where Employees.EmployeesId = hours_detail.emp_id) as [FirstName],
(Select LastName from Employees where Employees.EmployeesId = hours_detail.emp_id) as [LastName],
(Select ChequeName from Employees where Employees.EmployeesId = hours_detail.emp_id) as [ChequeName],
Sum (regular) as Regular, Sum (overtime) as OverTime,Sum (overtime2) as OverTime2,
Sum (vacation) as Vacation, Sum (personal_paid) as personal_paid,Sum (personal_unpaid) as personal_unpaid,
Sum (statutory_paid) as statutory_paid, Sum (statutory_unpaid) as statutory_unpaid,
Sum (sick_paid) as sick_paid, Sum (sick_unpaid) as sick_unpaid
From  hours_detail where DATE Between '2012-05-01 00:00:00.000' and '2013-04-30 23:59:59.000'
Group by hours_detail.emp_id

Any reason why you're using correlated subqueries rather than a join?

Select h.emp_id, 
CASE e.DepartmentCode WHEN 1 THEN '01-X1'
    WHEN 2 THEN '02-X2'
    WHEN 3 THEN '03-X3'
    ELSE '' END AS [Department],
e.FirstName,
e.LastName,
e.ChequeName,
Sum (regular) as Regular, 
Sum (overtime) as OverTime,
Sum (overtime2) as OverTime2,
Sum (vacation) as Vacation, 
Sum (personal_paid) as personal_paid,
Sum (personal_unpaid) as personal_unpaid,
Sum (statutory_paid) as statutory_paid, 
Sum (statutory_unpaid) as statutory_unpaid,
Sum (sick_paid) as sick_paid, 
Sum (sick_unpaid) as sick_unpaid
From  hours_detail h INNER JOIN Employees e ON h.emp_id = e.EmployeesId
where h.DATE Between '2012-05-01 00:00:00.000' and '2013-04-30 23:59:59.000' 
Group by h.emp_id, 
CASE e.DepartmentCode WHEN 1 THEN '01-X1'
    WHEN 2 THEN '02-X2'
    WHEN 3 THEN '03-X3'
    ELSE '' END,
e.FirstName,
e.LastName,
e.ChequeName

Build this sql statement without access to SQLServer but should work
Used Left Join clause and referenced Employees in case statement


Select emp_id,
Case Employees.DepartmentCode
        WHEN 1      THEN '01-X1'
        WHEN 2      THEN '02-X2'                          
        WHEN 3      THEN '03-X3'                        
        Else ''
 end,
(Select FirstName from Employees where Employees.EmployeesId = hours_detail.emp_id) as [FirstName],
(Select LastName from Employees where Employees.EmployeesId = hours_detail.emp_id) as [LastName],
(Select ChequeName from Employees where Employees.EmployeesId = hours_detail.emp_id) as [ChequeName],
Sum (regular) as Regular, Sum (overtime) as OverTime,Sum (overtime2) as OverTime2,
Sum (vacation) as Vacation, Sum (personal_paid) as personal_paid,Sum (personal_unpaid) as personal_unpaid,
Sum (statutory_paid) as statutory_paid, Sum (statutory_unpaid) as statutory_unpaid,
Sum (sick_paid) as sick_paid, Sum (sick_unpaid) as sick_unpaid
From  hours_detail
Left join
 Employees on Employees.EmployeesId = hours_detail.emp_id
where DATE Between '2012-05-01 00:00:00.000' and '2013-04-30 23:59:59.000'
Group by hours_detail.emp_id

Hello Matthewspatrick,

Your code is working but with 2 errors ,
Msg 209, Level 16, State 1, Line 14
Ambiguous column name 'personal_unpaid'.
Msg 209, Level 16, State 1, Line 18
Ambiguous column name 'sick_unpaid'.

I did try a left join, but had no success,
if you can help with a join, would be appreciated.

Hell o5teveo,
I get errors running your code.

Column 'Employees.DepartmentCode' is invalid in the select list because it is not contained in either an aggregate function or the GROUP BY clause.

thanks
