PIVOT Question

I have an Application table which holds information about an application. I have a ApplicationCompany table which identifies the state that the application operates in, as well as other information such as ItemCount and UnitCount.

The Application may or may not apply to all possible states, which is held in the Company table.

With
Application table
1  Test
2  Test2

Company
AR
AK

ApplicationCompany
AppID State Items Units
1         AR     2         209
1         AK     1         100
2         AK     10         90

I am hoping to arrive at:

ApplicationName  ApplicationDescription  State  Items   Units State Items Units
Test                       Test Application             AR      2          209   AK     1        100
Test2                                                           AK      10         90

I'm a little bit confused about the names of the tables/columns, but I guess that what you need is a LEFT JOIN, something like:

SELECT <whatever columns you want>
FROM Application a
LEFT JOIN ApplicationCompany ac ON ac.AppID = a.AppID

Maybe I'm missing something... if so, may you clarify the names of tables/columns/result set?

Application Table
AppID
AppName

Company Table
CompanyID
State

ApplicationCompany table
AppID
CompanyID
ItemCount
UnitCount

SELECT AppID,AppName
,[1] AS UnitsAR
,[2] AS unitsAK
FROM (
SELECT a.AppID,a.AppName,c.CompanyID,ac.UnitCount
FROM Application a
JOIN ApplicationCompany ac ON ac.AppID = a.AppID
JOIN Company c ON c.CompanyID = pc.CompanyID
) as SourceTable
PIVOT (MAX(UnitCount) FOR CompanyID IN ([1],[2])
as PivotTable;

This works and I get:
AppID       AppName     UnitsAR   UnitsAK
100           Test             100           50

But I would actually like to achieve:
AppID        AppName   UnitsAR ItemCountAR  UnitsAK   ItemCountAK
0

Use this:

SELECT AppName
,SUM([1]) AS UnitsAR
,SUM([-1]) AS ItemsAR
,SUM([2]) AS unitsAK
,SUM([-2]) AS ItemsAK
FROM 
(
SELECT a.AppID,a.AppName,c.CompanyID, -ac.CompanyID CompanyID1, ac.UnitCount,ac.Items
FROM Application a
JOIN ApplicationCompany ac ON ac.AppID = a.AppID
JOIN Company c ON c.CompanyID = ac.CompanyID
) as SourceTable
PIVOT (MAX(UnitCount) FOR CompanyID IN ([1],[2])) a
PIVOT (MAX(Items) FOR CompanyID1 IN ([-1],[-2])) b
GROUP BY AppName;

Open in new window


The trick here is to create a fake CompanyID1 column with negative values that are equal to CompanyID, and pivot by this values.
