SQL Group by question

I have a query for SSRS to detail employee bonuses for the past 3 years.

I achieved the appropriate bonus amounts using case statements, but I want the result in one row for each employee.  Currently, with the attached query, it reports in 3 rows.  If I take the Payroll Date out of the Group by clause, it errors.

to remove the datepart component from grouping you need to include it inside the aggregate function, like this:
SELECT     PREH.FirstName, PREH.Employee, PREH.udDivision, PREH.LastName, PREH.GLCo, PREH.HrlyRate, 
              sum(case  when (datepart(yyyy,PRDT.PREndDate)=(2012-2)) then PRDT.Amount else 0 end) as TwoPrvYr,
		sum(case  when (datepart(yyyy,PRDT.PREndDate)=(2012-1)) then PRDT.Amount else 0 end) as PrvYr,
		 sum(case  when (datepart(yyyy,PRDT.PREndDate)=(2012)) then PRDT.Amount else 0 end) as Year

FROM         HRRM INNER JOIN
                      PREH ON HRRM.HRCo = PREH.PRCo AND HRRM.HRRef = PREH.Employee INNER JOIN
                      HRPC ON PREH.PRCo = HRPC.HRCo AND HRRM.PositionCode = HRPC.PositionCode INNER JOIN
                      HQCO ON PREH.GLCo = HQCO.HQCo LEFT OUTER JOIN
                      PRDT ON PREH.PRCo = PRDT.PRCo AND PREH.PRGroup = PRDT.PRGroup AND PREH.Employee = PRDT.Employee

where  PREH.ActiveYN = 'Y' AND (NOT (PREH.GLCo IN (90, 201))) AND (PRDT.EDLCode = 10) and datepart(yyyy,PRDT.PREndDate) between (2012)-2 and (2012)
GROUP BY PREH.GLCo, PREH.udDivision, PREH.LastName, PREH.FirstName, PREH.HrlyRate, PREH.Employee
ORDER BY PREH.GLCo, PREH.udDivision, PREH.LastName, PREH.Employee

Open in new window


On a side note, this statement:
 datepart(yyyy,PRDT.PREndDate) between (2012)-2 and (2012)

Open in new window

is not great in terms of performace, as SQL Server will not be able to construct index. It will be better to compare dates with dates, like this:
PRDT.PREndDate >= '20100101' and PRDT.PREndDate < '20130101'

Open in new window

(this statement will grab all dates for years 2010, 2011, 2012)

Thank you!  I am used to manipulating with Crystal and am just gaining the in depth SQL experience to eloquently create SSRS reports.  I do like them so much better, but old dogs can't always readily see new tricks!
