Hello,
I have Below code,
because I'm using a Union, I get 2 values per Account,

Can you Please help me to get only one value per account (the higher value)

SELECT  OT.AccountNumber, AccountCode , OT.TransactionNumber AS [LastInvoiceNumber], OT.SalesAmount AS [SubTotalAmount], OT.TaxAmount AS [TaxAmount], OT.ARAmount AS [TotalAmount],OT.TransactionDate AS [LastInvoiceDate], Clients.Accountlocked
FROM ARopentransactions as OT
INNER JOIN (SELECT AccountNumber , TransactionDate , row_number() over (partition by AccountNumber order by TransactionDate DESC) as row_ref FROM ARopentransactions WHERE TransactionType = 1) AS Latest ON OT.AccountNumber = Latest.AccountNumber AND OT.TransactionDate = Latest.TransactionDate
INNER JOIN Clients ON  OT.AccountNumber = Clients.AccountNumber
WHERE Latest.row_ref = 1 and TransactionType = 1
UNION ALL
SELECT  OT.AccountNumber, AccountCode, OT.TransactionNumber AS [LastInvoiceNumber], OT.SalesAmount AS [SubTotalAmount], OT.TaxAmount AS [TaxAmount], OT.ARAmount AS [TotalAmount],OT.TransactionDate AS [LastInvoiceDate], Clients.Accountlocked
FROM PurgedARTransactions as OT
INNER JOIN (SELECT AccountNumber , TransactionDate , row_number() over (partition by AccountNumber order by TransactionDate DESC) as row_ref FROM PurgedARTransactions WHERE TransactionType = 1) AS Latest ON OT.AccountNumber = Latest.AccountNumber AND OT.TransactionDate = Latest.TransactionDate
INNER JOIN Clients ON  OT.AccountNumber = Clients.AccountNumber
WHERE Latest.row_ref = 1 and TransactionType = 1

Thank you,

Please try this
SELECT
      Clients.AccountNumber
    , Clients.AccountCode
    , Latest.LastInvoiceNumber
    , Latest.SubTotalAmount
    , Latest.TaxAmount
    , Latest.TotalAmount
    , Latest.TransactionDate AS [LastInvoiceDate]
    , Clients.Accountlocked
FROM (
        SELECT
          AccountNumber
        , TransactionDate
        , LastInvoiceNumber
        , SubTotalAmount
        , TaxAmount
        , row_number() OVER (
              PARTITION BY AccountNumber ORDER BY TransactionDate DESC
              ) AS row_ref
        FROM (

                SELECT AccountNumber
                     , TransactionDate
                     , TransactionNumber AS [LastInvoiceNumber]
                     , SalesAmount AS [SubTotalAmount]
                     , TaxAmount AS [TaxAmount]
                     , ARAmount AS [TotalAmount]
                FROM ARopentransactions
                WHERE TransactionType = 1

                UNION ALL

                SELECT AccountNumber
                     , TransactionDate
                     , TransactionNumber AS [LastInvoiceNumber]
                     , SalesAmount AS [SubTotalAmount]
                     , TaxAmount AS [TaxAmount]
                     , ARAmount AS [TotalAmount]
                FROM PurgedARTransactions
                WHERE TransactionType = 1
             ) AS Trans
        ) AS Latest
INNER JOIN Clients ON Latest.AccountNumber = Clients.AccountNumber
WHERE Latest.row_ref = 1
-- AND Clients.TransactionType = 1 -- probably not required

Open in new window

{+ edit for this note} as you filter the transactions themselves by TransactionType = 1 it is not necessary to do so at line 45 above - unless that field belongs to the clients table (which I doubt)

include under line 16

get rid of existing line 45 completely (please see the edit to my suggestion above)

to be honest, I would expect you to recognize if the following is valid or not

AND Clients.TransactionType = 1

if you don't include table.field or alias.field in your code we have to guess

:) and thank you.

just as a point of site etiquette, the comment that actually provides (most of) the solution should be marked as the accepted solution - this is useful for reference by others. Not sure my comment ID: 39198381 really meets that criteria.

Please take the time to include table.field or alias.field in your SQL code - it makes your code more robust and maintainable.

Cheers, Paul
