Dear Sir/Madam, I am seeking help in SQL used in Sybase IQ Client.  Please see attached spreadsheet.  I work in the transportation industry working with commercial airline passenger's air fares.  When data is requested by customers, I have to ensure that at least 3 airlines operate a certain route (i.e. New York JFK-London) prior to providing the data (security measure).  My current query, as seen in "Query1" tab in the attached, is performing this correctly.  This query is run route by route.  I am trying to find a way to run it for all routes, with the taking into account the 3-airline rule.  I am not having much luck so I turn to the EE's for input.  Please advise with any questions.  Thank you. James.

Let me know if we're on the right track here...

DECLARE @Quarter		INT,
	@Year				INT,
	@MinOpCarrierCount	INT = 3,
	@OriginWAC			INT = NULL,	--Leaving NULL returns for all originwac values
	@DestWAC			INT = NULL	--Leaving NULL returns for all destwac values

IF OBJECT_ID('tempdb..#Route') IS NOT NULL
	DROP TABLE #Route

SELECT [year], [quarter], originwac, destwac
INTO #Route
FROM XXX
WHERE ISNULL(@OriginWAC, originwac) = originwac
	AND ISNULL(@DestWAC, destwac) = destwac
	AND [year] = @Year
	AND [quarter] = @Quarter
        AND originwac < 100
	AND destwac > 100
GROUP BY [year], [quarter], originwac, destwac
HAVING COUNT(1) >= @MinOpCarrierCount;

SELECT X.[year],
	X.[quarter],
	X.ORIGIN,
	X.DEST,
	SUM(X.PASSENGERS) AS PAX,
	SUM(X.MKTFARE * X.PASSENGERS) AS REV,
	CAST((X.REV / X.PAX) AS NUMERIC(8,2)) AS AVG_FARE
FROM XXX AS X
INNER JOIN #Route AS R
	ON X.[year] = R.[year]
	AND X.[quarter] = R.[quarter]
	AND X.originwac = R.originwac
	AND X.destwac = R.destwac

Not sure how or if the above query will work in a Sybase environment but you posted in a SQL Server topic area so I thought I'd give it a shot.

BriCrowe, thank you for the query.  My priorities were shifted around so I have to put this on the back burner.  I appreciate your help.
