sql sum over 3 tables

Hi,

I have the following query:
SELECT pm.Name AS Method, pmt.Name as TypeName,
         Sum(Amount) AS Total
FROM Payment p
inner JOIN PaymentMethod pm ON p.MethodID = pm.ID
left JOIN PaymentMethodType pmt ON pm.ID = pmt.PaymentMethodID
WHERE p.ID > 0
GROUP BY pm.Name, pmt.Name
ORDER BY pm.Name

It gives me the result below:
my sql query results
I would like to split the total by typename. Any ideas on how I may proceed from here?

Thanks!

Do you mean to remove the Method column from output?
SELECT pmt.Name as TypeName, 
         Sum(Amount) AS Total
FROM Payment p
left JOIN PaymentMethodType pmt ON pm.ID = pmt.PaymentMethodID
WHERE p.ID > 0
GROUP BY pmt.Name 
ORDER BY pmt.Name

try this:

SELECT ISNULL(pmt.Name, pm.Name) AS TypeName,
         Sum(Amount) AS Total
FROM Payment p
inner JOIN PaymentMethod pm ON p.MethodID = pm.ID
left JOIN PaymentMethodType pmt ON pm.ID = pmt.PaymentMethodID
WHERE p.ID > 0
GROUP BY ISNULL(pmt.Name, pm.Name) 
ORDER BY ISNULL(pmt.Name, pm.Name)

Sorry, forget my first answer please. It cannot work...

To split the total by TypeName you would need the TypeName identification in each payment. Do you have such column in Payment table?

The existing query cannot recognize PaymentMethodType for each Payment because it is related to the PaymentMethod only.

Something like
SELECT pm.Name AS Method, pmt.Name as TypeName, 
         Sum(Amount) AS Total
FROM Payment p
inner JOIN PaymentMethod pm ON p.MethodID = pm.ID
left JOIN PaymentMethodType pmt ON p.PaymentMethodTypeID = pmt.ID
WHERE p.ID > 0
GROUP BY pm.Name, pmt.Name 
ORDER BY pm.Name

It almost sound like you want to pivot the Type Name into a column.  This is how I would do that.
SELECT *
FROM (      SELECT pm.Name AS Method, ISNULL(pmt.Name,'No Type') as TypeName, Sum(Amount) AS Total
            FROM Payment p
            inner JOIN PaymentMethod pm ON p.MethodID = pm.ID
            left JOIN PaymentMethodType pmt ON pm.ID = pmt.PaymentMethodID
            WHERE p.ID > 0
            GROUP BY pm.Name, pmt.Name
            /*ORDER BY pm.Name*/ ) AS data
PIVOT (      SUM(Total) FOR TypeName IN([Visa],[Master Card],[FNB],[Standard Bank],[Absa],[No Type])) AS pvt

Yes, that's one possibility but we still have no info about correct table joining to do this task. The Payment Method Type must be stored in Payment table or in Payment Method table. Now we have Payment Method stored in Payment Method Type which does not allow requested data grouping.
Lawrence Barnes

In his initial request I do not recall a date grouping, just a splitting of the total.  We'll see.

Yes, but we cannot split the Total based on TypeName because we still don't have the Payment - PaymentMethodType relation defined.

We do have:
PaymentMethod : Payment ...  1:N
PaymentMethod : PaymentMethodType  ...  1,0:N
which does not help

Hi,

Thank you for your answers. To answer some of your questions - I have 3 tables:
Payment : PaymentMethod ... N : 1
PaymentMethod : PaymentMethodType ... 1,0 : N
There is no direct link from Payment to PaymentMethodType.
payments relationships - Payment, PaymentMethod & PaymentMethodType
If you look at the results of my query below, what I want to do (line 4 & 5) is to
show the method 'Credit Card' and the method type 'Visa'/'Master Card' with their respective totals. Currently it gives me the total of Visa & Master Card together on both rows - not split up between the two method types.

the two rows should not have the same result
I hope this helps to clarify what I want. Thanks again for your help!
