hi everyone,

I have the following UNION statement with 3 columns.

Here is an example of results

111-12345      CDH3 CURNCY      -8.00
111-12345      CDH3 CURNCY      8.00

How do I rearrange my query, so the result is
111-12345                CDH3 CURNCY        0.00

Basically, just SUM the 3rd columns results.

Thanks in advance!!

SELECT dbo.TopdayTradesDB.Account_Number, dbo.TopdayTradesDB.BloombergSymbol, SUM(dbo.TopdayTradesDB.Qty_Net) As TopdayNet
FROM dbo.TopdayTradesDB
GROUP BY [Account_Number], BloombergSymbol
UNION
SELECT dbo.DailyPositions_JEFF.Account_Number, dbo.DailyPositions_JEFF.BloombergSymbol, SUM(dbo.DailyPositions_JEFF.Qty_Net) As TopdayNet
FROM dbo.DailyPositions_JEFF
GROUP BY [Account_Number], BloombergSymbol

Throw it all in a subquery, and do a sum

SELECT a.AccountNumber, a.BloombergSymbol, SUM(a.TopdayNet) as TopDayNet_Sum
FROM (
	SELECT dbo.TopdayTradesDB.Account_Number, dbo.TopdayTradesDB.BloombergSymbol, SUM(dbo.TopdayTradesDB.Qty_Net) As TopdayNet
	FROM dbo.TopdayTradesDB
	GROUP BY [Account_Number], BloombergSymbol
	UNION
	SELECT dbo.DailyPositions_JEFF.Account_Number, dbo.DailyPositions_JEFF.BloombergSymbol, SUM(dbo.DailyPositions_JEFF.Qty_Net) As TopdayNet
	FROM dbo.DailyPositions_JEFF
	GROUP BY [Account_Number], BloombergSymbol) a
GROUP BY a.AccountNumber, a.BloombergSymbol

Also, UNION ALL may be faster than UNION, if your intent is not to weed out duplicates on both sides of the UNION

my goal is to sum the net_qty in both table, by account and bloomberg symbol.
I only want 1 lot for each account and symbol..

do I still want UNIONALL?

The above groups by AccountNumber and BloombergSymbol, and sums the TopdayNet values.  

If that's not the behavior you need, then you'll have to spell it out in greater detail.

>my goal is to sum the net_qty in both table
Sum them separately, then UNION?

Thanks for the grade.  Good luck with your project.  -Jim

>do I still want UNIONALL?
UNION requires some extra overhead as it has to marry up the two sets and eliminate duplicates.

UNION ALL is used either when you need every row, (your case), or the two sets are distinct enough that you don't have to worry about it (SELECT name FROM burger_joints UNION ALL SELECT name FROM whorehouses).  UNION ALL does not have the overhead UNION does, so it runs faster.
