Hi I have one table where it has two kinds of record the example would be bellow:

transationtbl
account | total amount used | type of transaction
6565 | 1000 | local
6565 |200|international
5252 | 300 | local
4565 |1000| international
4565 |300| local
1020 | 100| local

so what I want a result with SQL from this is to list all accounts that have used ONLY local transaction if they used both local/international I don't need them or if they used only International ... I only need LOCAL made transaction

thanks for help

Try this:

SELECT account, SUM([type of transaction = 'local') AS CountLocal, SUM([type of transaction = 'international') AS CountInternational
FROM YourTable
GROUP BY account
HAVING SUM([type of transaction = 'local') <> 0 AND SUM([type of transaction = 'international') =0

Open in new window

Yep - that was a typo.  Did you try closing the brackets?

SELECT account, SUM([type of transaction] = 'local') AS CountLocal, SUM([type of transaction] = 'international') AS CountInternational
FROM YourTable
GROUP BY account
HAVING SUM([type of transaction] = 'local') <> 0 AND SUM([type of transaction] = 'international') =0

Open in new window



If field names have spaces in them, you need to enclose them in [] brackets (Access and SQL Server)... not sure about postgress, but that also most likely needs some kind of delimiter around any field name containing spaces.

Thanks I got the logic I made some modification and it worked instead of type='local' I used sum(case when transactiontype='local' then 1 else 0 end)

thanks for your time and help

Good for you working that out!  :-)

That case syntax is the best alternative since it requires only one column.  I forget it is an option... It is not available in Access (which is my primary database development platform).
