Hi,
Is it possible to modify my select statement below to include a negative sign "-" for rec_yearly_total when budget_type is equal to 'E' ?
Also can I remove a '$' sign from the rec_yearly_total column?

Thanks,

Andrew


SELECT 
	  case when budget_type = 'I' then 'INCOME'
           when budget_type = 'E' then 'EXPENSE'
           else budget_type
      end AS 'INCOME or EXPENSE'
	, rec_description AS DESCRIPTION 	  
    , case when budget_group_id = 1 then 'Income'
           when budget_group_id = 2 then 'Commitments'
		   when budget_group_id = 3 then 'Home'
		   when budget_group_id = 4 then 'Utilities'
		   when budget_group_id = 5 then 'Education'
		   when budget_group_id = 6 then 'Health'
		   when budget_group_id = 7 then 'Shopping'
		   when budget_group_id = 8 then 'Transport'
		   when budget_group_id = 9 then 'Entertainment'
		   when budget_group_id = 10 then 'Eating Out'
           else budget_group_id
      end AS 'GROUP HEADING'
    , case when rec_frequency = 'D' then 'Daily'
           when rec_frequency = 'W' then 'Weekly'
		   when rec_frequency = 'F' then 'Fortnightly'
		   when rec_frequency = 'M' then 'Monthly'
		   when rec_frequency = 'Y' then 'Yearly'	  
	       else rec_frequency 
	  end AS FREQUENCY
    , rec_total AS TOTAL
    , rec_yearly_total AS 'YEARLY TOTAL'
FROM `budget_planner` 
WHERE user_id = '5028' ORDER BY budget_type, budget_group_id

This is how to add "-":
SELECT 
	  case when budget_type = 'I' then 'INCOME'
           when budget_type = 'E' then 'EXPENSE'
           else budget_type
      end AS 'INCOME or EXPENSE'
	, rec_description AS DESCRIPTION 	  
    , case when budget_group_id = 1 then 'Income'
           when budget_group_id = 2 then 'Commitments'
		   when budget_group_id = 3 then 'Home'
		   when budget_group_id = 4 then 'Utilities'
		   when budget_group_id = 5 then 'Education'
		   when budget_group_id = 6 then 'Health'
		   when budget_group_id = 7 then 'Shopping'
		   when budget_group_id = 8 then 'Transport'
		   when budget_group_id = 9 then 'Entertainment'
		   when budget_group_id = 10 then 'Eating Out'
           else budget_group_id
      end AS 'GROUP HEADING'
    , case when rec_frequency = 'D' then 'Daily'
           when rec_frequency = 'W' then 'Weekly'
		   when rec_frequency = 'F' then 'Fortnightly'
		   when rec_frequency = 'M' then 'Monthly'
		   when rec_frequency = 'Y' then 'Yearly'	  
	       else rec_frequency 
	  end AS FREQUENCY
    , rec_total AS TOTAL
    , CASE WHEN budget_type = 'E' THEN - rec_yearly_total ELSE rec_yearly_total END AS 'YEARLY TOTAL'
FROM `budget_planner` 
WHERE user_id = '5028' ORDER BY budget_type, budget_group_id

However, I do not see $ sign anywhere in the SQL query. It must be the frontend that puts it. Can you advise what you use for the reporting?

Thanks chaau, the "$' sign is contained in the rec_yearly_total field, for example $123.45 and I was wondering if I can remove it to leave just the 123.45 ?
Perhaps I could remove the first char somehow via the query?

So, it is a text column? Then in this case my query is incorrect. It will be this:

SELECT 
	  case when budget_type = 'I' then 'INCOME'
           when budget_type = 'E' then 'EXPENSE'
           else budget_type
      end AS 'INCOME or EXPENSE'
	, rec_description AS DESCRIPTION 	  
    , case when budget_group_id = 1 then 'Income'
           when budget_group_id = 2 then 'Commitments'
		   when budget_group_id = 3 then 'Home'
		   when budget_group_id = 4 then 'Utilities'
		   when budget_group_id = 5 then 'Education'
		   when budget_group_id = 6 then 'Health'
		   when budget_group_id = 7 then 'Shopping'
		   when budget_group_id = 8 then 'Transport'
		   when budget_group_id = 9 then 'Entertainment'
		   when budget_group_id = 10 then 'Eating Out'
           else budget_group_id
      end AS 'GROUP HEADING'
    , case when rec_frequency = 'D' then 'Daily'
           when rec_frequency = 'W' then 'Weekly'
		   when rec_frequency = 'F' then 'Fortnightly'
		   when rec_frequency = 'M' then 'Monthly'
		   when rec_frequency = 'Y' then 'Yearly'	  
	       else rec_frequency 
	  end AS FREQUENCY
    , rec_total AS TOTAL
    , CASE WHEN budget_type = 'E' THEN Concat('-', REPLACE(rec_yearly_total, '$', '')) ELSE REPLACE(rec_yearly_total, '$', '') END AS 'YEARLY TOTAL'
FROM `budget_planner` 
WHERE user_id = '5028' ORDER BY budget_type, budget_group_id
