I have a table that has ID numbers and financial transactions that I am trying to sum together. Basically I want to turn this:-

1  |  100  |  200  |  500
2  |  200  |  400  |  800
1  |  400  |  200  |  100
3  |  100  |  200  |  100
3  |  500  |  200  |  400

into this:-

1  |  500  |  400  |  600
2  |  200  |  400  |  800
3  |  600  |  400  |  500

..using a SQL view under SQL 2005. Is this possible and can someone advise on the best way to make it happen?

Thanks

You want something along the lines of the following (modified for your table and column names obviously):
SELECT ColA, SUM(ColB), SUM(ColC), SUM(ColD)
FROM YourTable
GROUP BY ColA

Need you to tell us the column names we're talking about, but in air code...
CREATE VIEW vw_name_me AS

-- Write some code comments  here. 

SELECT id, SUM(Column1), SUM(Column2), SUM(Column3)
FROM Yourtable
GROUP BY id
ORDER BY id
GO

Open in new window

Also, here's a tutorial on SQL Server GROUP BY Solutions that will help understand grouping concepts.
