Hello,
can you please help, I need to combine below into one, (without the union all).

if I run below code, I get duplicates
example
Service1        1      25.62      0.00      31.12      1.56      35.78
Service1            645      6009.66      855.66      7437.85      372.36      8552.9443
Service 2      3      14.70      0.00      14.70      0.74      16.91
Service 2      3721      22801.99      3357.51      30552.37      1536.22      35137.3031
Service 3      2      71.80      10.90      88.70      4.44      101.98
Service 3      409      13918.89      2307.92      19288.86      1229.42      22054.11

Any help is appreciated.

Select st.Description as [Service Type] ,Count (ST.ServiceTypeID) AS [Count], SUM (BaseAmount) AS [BaseAmount],
SUM (FuelAmount) AS [FuelAmount],SUM (SubTotalAmount) AS [SubTotalAmount],SUM (Tax1Amount) AS [Tax1Amount],
SUM (TotalAmount) AS [TotalAmount]
FROM ActiveOrders Ao
LEFT JOIN Clients on Ao.accountnumber = clients.accountnumber
LEFT JOIN servicetypes st ON Ao.ServiceTypeId = st.ServiceTypeID
WHERE  Ao.servicetypeid = st.servicetypeid
AND AO.AccountNumber = 451 and OrderDate >= '2013-01-01'
Group by st.Description,st.servicetypeid  

UNION ALL

Select st.Description as [Service Type] ,Count (ST.ServiceTypeID) AS [Count], SUM (BaseAmount) AS [BaseAmount],

Hi Wass,

I don't see duplicates in your example.  In this context, a duplicate occurs when all columns match.

Second, UNION ALL preserves the duplicates.  It merely merges all of the rows into a single result set.

If you want to filter the duplicates (based on all columns) use UNION instead of UNION ALL.



Good Luck,
Kent

Ah.  Ok.

That's what UNION / UNION ALL does.  Just merges with/without filtering the duplicates.

Do you want just the active orders, just the finalized orders, the sum of the active and finalized, the finalized when known otherwise the active, etc...?

You can wrap that with an outer query that sums the data.

SELECT [Service Type], Sum[Count] as [Count], Sum([BaseAmount] as [BaseAmount],
  SUM ([FuelAmount]) AS [FuelAmount],SUM ([SubTotalAmount]) AS [SubTotalAmount],SUM ([Tax1Amount]) AS [Tax1Amount],
	SUM ([TotalAmount]) AS [TotalAmount]
FROM
(
	SELECT st.Description as [Service Type] ,Count (ST.ServiceTypeID) AS [Count], SUM (BaseAmount) AS [BaseAmount],
	SUM (FuelAmount) AS [FuelAmount],SUM (SubTotalAmount) AS [SubTotalAmount],SUM (Tax1Amount) AS [Tax1Amount],
	SUM (TotalAmount) AS [TotalAmount]
	FROM ActiveOrders Ao
	LEFT JOIN Clients on Ao.accountnumber = clients.accountnumber
	LEFT JOIN servicetypes st ON Ao.ServiceTypeId = st.ServiceTypeID
	WHERE  Ao.servicetypeid = st.servicetypeid
	AND AO.AccountNumber = 451 and OrderDate >= '2013-01-01'
	GROUP BY st.Description,st.servicetypeid  

	UNION ALL

	SELECT st.Description as [Service Type] ,Count (ST.ServiceTypeID) AS [Count], SUM (BaseAmount) AS [BaseAmount],
	SUM (FuelAmount) AS [FuelAmount],SUM (SubTotalAmount) AS [SubTotalAmount],SUM (Tax1Amount) AS [Tax1Amount],
	SUM (TotalAmount) AS [TotalAmount]
	FROM finalizedorders fo
	LEFT JOIN Clients on fo.accountnumber = clients.accountnumber
	LEFT JOIN servicetypes st ON fo.ServiceTypeId = st.ServiceTypeID
	WHERE  fo.servicetypeid = st.servicetypeid  
	AND FO.AccountNumber = 451 and OrderDate >= '2013-01-01'
	GROUP BY st.Description,st.servicetypeid  
)
ORDER BY [Service Type]

You can also select just the rows in the inner sub-queries (without summing) and let the outer query sum the values.  If you've got a LOT of data you may get better performance from the query above.

Hello,
Error expectin \ or select.

if I run the inner sub-querry, I get 2 results (because of 2 tables., the Union / union all didn't combine),

I get  same results
Service1
Service1
Service 2
Service 2
Service 3
Service 3

I need to have the results as
Service1
Service 2
Service 3

I think I need to do the query this way, but I can't figure our the join part

Select st.Description as [Service Type] ,Count (ST.ServiceTypeID) AS [Count], SUM (BaseAmount) AS [BaseAmount],
SUM (FuelAmount) AS [FuelAmount],SUM (SubTotalAmount) AS [SubTotalAmount],SUM (Tax1Amount) AS [Tax1Amount],
SUM (TotalAmount) AS [TotalAmount]
FROM ActiveOrders Ao , finalizedorders fo
LEFT JOIN Clients on Ao.accountnumber = clients.accountnumber
LEFT JOIN servicetypes st ON Ao.ServiceTypeId = st.ServiceTypeID
WHERE  Ao.servicetypeid = st.servicetypeid
AND AO.AccountNumber = 451 and OrderDate >= '2013-01-01'
Group by st.Description,st.servicetypeid  

thanks.

How many rows are in the ActiveOrders and FinalizedOrders tables?  Do they have the same structure?

I left the alias off of that query.  Try this one:

SELECT [Service Type], Sum[Count] as [Count], Sum([BaseAmount] as [BaseAmount],
  SUM ([FuelAmount]) AS [FuelAmount],SUM ([SubTotalAmount]) AS [SubTotalAmount],SUM ([Tax1Amount]) AS [Tax1Amount],
	SUM ([TotalAmount]) AS [TotalAmount]
FROM
(
	SELECT st.Description as [Service Type], Count (ST.ServiceTypeID) AS [Count], SUM (BaseAmount) AS [BaseAmount],
	  SUM (FuelAmount) AS [FuelAmount], SUM (SubTotalAmount) AS [SubTotalAmount], SUM (Tax1Amount) AS [Tax1Amount],
	  SUM (TotalAmount) AS [TotalAmount]
	FROM ActiveOrders Ao
	LEFT JOIN Clients on Ao.accountnumber = clients.accountnumber
	LEFT JOIN servicetypes st ON Ao.ServiceTypeId = st.ServiceTypeID
	WHERE  Ao.servicetypeid = st.servicetypeid
	AND AO.AccountNumber = 451 and OrderDate >= '2013-01-01'
	GROUP BY st.Description,st.servicetypeid  

	UNION ALL

	SELECT st.Description as [Service Type] ,Count (ST.ServiceTypeID) AS [Count], SUM (BaseAmount) AS [BaseAmount],
	  SUM (FuelAmount) AS [FuelAmount], SUM (SubTotalAmount) AS [SubTotalAmount], SUM (Tax1Amount) AS [Tax1Amount],
	  SUM (TotalAmount) AS [TotalAmount]
	FROM finalizedorders fo
	LEFT JOIN Clients on fo.accountnumber = clients.accountnumber
	LEFT JOIN servicetypes st ON fo.ServiceTypeId = st.ServiceTypeID
	WHERE  fo.servicetypeid = st.servicetypeid  
	AND FO.AccountNumber = 451 and OrderDate >= '2013-01-01'
	GROUP BY st.Description,st.servicetypeid  
) t0
ORDER BY [Service Type]

The solution provided is just missing some parenthesis, that's all:
SELECT [Service Type], SUM([Count]) as [Count], Sum([BaseAmount]) as [BaseAmount],
