I am trying to write a simple SQL query that sums a salesman sales by month, but the date seems to be my trouble.

What I need to see is summed sales by salesman for a particular month/year 11-2013


SELECT HDR.slspsn_no,SUM(LIN.sls_amt)
FROM oehdrhst_sql HDR
INNER JOIN oelinhst_sql LIN ON
HDR.inv_no=LIN.inv_no
WHERE HDR.inv_dt=(11-2013)
GROUP BY HDR.slspsn_no

As the above is written I get (0 row(s) affected)

Any help would be much appreciated

You need to extract only month/ year from the date field before applying the filter. What is your database?

SQL is not a database. I have asked if you are working in SQL Server/Oracle/DB2/MySQL or any other database?

try this.
SELECT HDR.slspsn_no, 
       SUM(LIN.sls_amt) 
  FROM oehdrhst_sql HDR 
       INNER JOIN oelinhst_sql LIN 
               ON HDR.inv_no = LIN.inv_no 
 WHERE RIGHT(CONVERT(VARCHAR(10), HDR.inv_dt, 103), 7) = '11/2013' 
 GROUP BY HDR.slspsn_no

Thanks so much, exactly what I needed. I'm sure simple for you, but I'm new to SQL
