Hi, I'm trying to find the previous date from the most current date. This is what I want
 
materialid      Receiveddt      unitid      nextrecevieddt
500130      4/12/2012      101896      6/30/2012
500130      6/30/2012      101126      8/31/2012
500130      8/31/2012      105261      

This is what I have so far

SELECT a.materialid, a.ReceivedDt, a.unitid,nextreceiveddt
FROM test1 AS a
LEFT JOIN (SELECT materialid, MIN(ReceivedDt) AS nextreceiveddt
            FROM test1 AS a
            WHERE materialid = '500130'
            GROUP BY vin) b
on b.materialid = a.materialid
AND b.nextreceiveddt <= a.ReceivedDt
WHERE a.vin = '500130'

materialid      Receiveddt      unitid      nextrecevieddt
500130      4/12/2012      101896      4/12/2012
500130      6/30/2012      101126      4/12/2012
500130      8/31/2012      105261      4/12/2012

Maybe something like this:
CREATE TABLE test1 ( materialid INT , ReceivedDt DATE, unitid INT ,nextreceiveddt DATE);
INSERT INTO test1 VALUES 
(  500130,      '4/12/2012',      101896,      '6/30/2012'),
(  500130,      '6/30/2012',      101126,      '8/31/2012'),
(  500130,      '8/31/2012',      105261, NULL  )


SELECT a.materialid, a.ReceivedDt, a.unitid, a.nextreceiveddt 
FROM test1 AS a
LEFT JOIN (SELECT materialid, MIN(ReceivedDt) AS nextreceiveddt
            FROM test1 AS a
            WHERE materialid = '500130'
            GROUP BY materialid) b
on b.materialid = a.materialid
AND b.nextreceiveddt <= a.ReceivedDt
WHERE a.materialid = '500130'

;WITH CTE AS (
SELECT a.materialid, a.ReceivedDt, a.unitid, a.nextreceiveddt , ROW_NUMBER() OVER (PARTITION BY materialid ORDER BY receivedDt) rn
FROM test1 a
)
SELECT C1.materialid, C1.ReceivedDt, C1.unitid, C1.nextreceiveddt, C2.ReceivedDt AS PreviousreceivedDt
FROM CTE C1
LEFT OUTER JOIN CTE C2 ON C1.materialid = C2.materialid AND C1.rn - 1 = C2.rn


DROP TABLE test1;

Assuming you only have those first three columns in your table...

CREATE TABLE test1 ( materialid INT , ReceivedDt DATE, unitid INT);
INSERT INTO test1 VALUES 
(  500130,      '4/12/2012',      101896),
(  500130,      '6/30/2012',      101126),
(  500130,      '8/31/2012',      105261)

--get next date

SELECT a.materialid, a.Receiveddt, a.unitid, MIN(b.Receiveddt) AS NextReceiveddt
FROM test1 a LEFT JOIN
    test1 b ON a.materialid = b.materialid AND a.Receiveddt < b.Receiveddt
GROUP BY a.materialid, a.Receiveddt, a.unitid
ORDER BY a.materialid, a.Receiveddt, a.unitid

-- get previous date

SELECT a.materialid, a.Receiveddt, a.unitid, MAX(b.Receiveddt) AS PreviousReceiveddt
FROM test1 a LEFT JOIN
    test1 b ON a.materialid = b.materialid AND a.Receiveddt > b.Receiveddt
GROUP BY a.materialid, a.Receiveddt, a.unitid
ORDER BY a.materialid, a.Receiveddt, a.unitid

-- get previous date and next date

SELECT a.materialid, a.Receiveddt, a.unitid, MAX(c.Receiveddt) AS PreviousReceiveddt,
    MIN(b.Receiveddt) AS NextReceiveddt
FROM test1 a LEFT JOIN
    test1 b ON a.materialid = b.materialid AND a.Receiveddt < b.Receiveddt LEFT JOIN
    test1 c ON a.materialid = c.materialid AND a.Receiveddt > c.Receiveddt
GROUP BY a.materialid, a.Receiveddt, a.unitid
ORDER BY a.materialid, a.Receiveddt, a.unitid

DROP TABLE test1

oops, in my code above the first select was what you had to start, not part of the solution, just the CTE.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

The number of columns should not matter in the CTE example I gave. As long as they are not part of the key between rows.

then we just need to work them into the JOIN like I did with "ON C1.materialid = C2.materialid."  Just add them something like:
ON C1.materialid = C2.materialid AND C1.KeyColumn2 = C2.KeyColumn2 -- etc

elucero,

Did you try my suggestion in http:#a38812378 ?

Hi, thanks this is what I'm looking for, but how can I make it faster. The data is being inserted into a table variable. This is what's making it so slow C1.rn - 1 = C2.rn
Thanks


;WITH CTE AS (
SELECT a.materialid, a.ReceivedDt, a.unitid, a.nextreceiveddt , ROW_NUMBER() OVER (PARTITION BY materialid ORDER BY receivedDt) rn
FROM test1 a
)
SELECT C1.materialid, C1.ReceivedDt, C1.unitid, C1.nextreceiveddt, C2.ReceivedDt AS PreviousreceivedDt
FROM CTE C1
LEFT OUTER JOIN CTE C2 ON C1.materialid = C2.materialid AND C1.rn - 1 = C2.rn
