select I.InventoryID,
SUM(CASE WHEN
((getdate()+7) between D.BeginDate and D.EndDate)
THEN ROUND (I.Qty,0,0) ELSE 0 END) as 'Column1'
SUM(CASE WHEN
((getdate()+14) between D.BeginDate and D.EndDate)
THEN ROUND (I.Qty,0,0) ELSE 0 END) as 'Column2'
From Inventory I
INNER JOIN Date D
WHERE D.DateID=I.DateID
GROUP BY I.InventoryID

Open in new window


I need to create a view using the select above.  Can I aggregate the results of Column1 and Column2 into a Column3 without using a temp table or variable?  I also don't want to display Col1 or Col2.

The results of the above query look like this:

InventoryID     Column1     Column2
1                       6                 7

I need the query to result in:

InventoryID     Column3
1                       13

Why not just do this?

select I.InventoryID,
    SUM(CASE WHEN ((getdate()+7) between D.BeginDate and D.EndDate) OR
        ((getdate()+14) between D.BeginDate and D.EndDate)
        THEN ROUND (I.Qty,0,0) 
        ELSE 0 END) as 'Column3'
From Inventory I
INNER JOIN Date D
WHERE D.DateID=I.DateID
GROUP BY I.InventoryID
