This query list each contributor by year. What I would like is to see

Contributor   Year 1  Year 2  Year 3 Year 4

For example:
Contributor   Year 1  Year 2  Year 3 Year 4
100                 $100      $200   $300  $400
200                   $50      $100   $150  $200


SELECT year(t2.date) as YearContrib,t2.MemberNumberId,sum(coalesce([Amount],0)) as Amount
FROM [Contribution Details] t1
inner join [Contribution Headers] t2 on t1.ContribHeaderId=t2.ContribNumberId
group by t2.MemberNumberId,year(t2.date)      
order by MemberNumberId,year(t2.date)

How do I restructure this query to accomplish this? I am using SQL Server 2012

as long as you have only 4 years in the selection criteria then you can use the below approach

;with C AS
(
SELECT year(t2.date) as YearContrib,t2.MemberNumberId,sum(coalesce([Amount],0)) as Amount
FROM [Contribution Details] t1
inner join [Contribution Headers] t2 on t1.ContribHeaderId=t2.ContribNumberId
group by t2.MemberNumberId,year(t2.date)      
)
select MemberNumID as contributerID,[2009],[2010],[2011],[2012]
FROM 
(
  SELECT * FROM C
)
PIVOT
(
  SUM(Amount) FOR MemberNumID IN ([2009],[2010],[2011],[2012])
) as pvt 
order by 1

Open in new window


incase if the number of years are dynamic and you don't know what they will be then you have to use a dynamic PIVOT as we do below



DECLARE @SQL VARCHAR(3000)
DECLARE @SQ VARCHAR(4) = ''''
;with C AS
(
SELECT year(t2.date) as YearContrib,t2.MemberNumberId,sum(coalesce([Amount],0)) as Amount
FROM [Contribution Details] t1
inner join [Contribution Headers] t2 on t1.ContribHeaderId=t2.ContribNumberId
group by t2.MemberNumberId,year(t2.date)      
), D AS
(
 SELECT DISTINCT YearContrib FROM C
), E AS
(
SELECT STUFF( (SELECT ',' + '[' + YearContrib + ']'  as Y FROM D FOR XML PATH ('')),1,1,'')
)
SELECT @SQL = 
'
;with C AS
(
SELECT year(t2.date) as YearContrib,t2.MemberNumberId,sum(coalesce([Amount],0)) as Amount
FROM [Contribution Details] t1
inner join [Contribution Headers] t2 on t1.ContribHeaderId=t2.ContribNumberId
group by t2.MemberNumberId,year(t2.date)      
)
' + 
'
select MemberNumID as contributerID, ' + (SELECT Y FROM D) + 
FROM 
(
  SELECT * FROM C
)
PIVOT
(
  SUM(Amount) FOR MemberNumID IN ( ' + (SELECT Y FROM D) + ')
) as pvt 
order by 1 '

The query give me this message:

Msg 156, Level 15, State 1, Line 13
Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'PIVOT'.

And the second one gives me:

Msg 156, Level 15, State 1, Line 28
Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'FROM'.
Msg 156, Level 15, State 1, Line 32
Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'PIVOT'.

My Mistake used improper column name, use the below

;with C AS
(
SELECT year(t2.date) as YearContrib,t2.MemberNumberId,sum(coalesce([Amount],0)) as Amount
FROM [Contribution Details] t1
inner join [Contribution Headers] t2 on t1.ContribHeaderId=t2.ContribNumberId
group by t2.MemberNumberId,year(t2.date)      
)
select MemberNumberId as contributerID,[2009],[2010],[2011],[2012]
FROM 
(
  SELECT * FROM C
) as p
PIVOT
(
  SUM(Amount) FOR YearContrib IN ([2009],[2010],[2011],[2012])
) as pvt 
order by 1

This is brilliant. Thank you so much. I have seen this construct before but never fully understood it.

May I asked what does the

;with C AS

do?
