sql multiple select statements with different criteria

I feel like I am making this more complex than it has to be.

I have a main select statement
SELECT *
  FROM [GSS].[dbo].[LedgerDB]
  inner join dbo.AccountsDB on dbo.AccountsDB.Account_ID = dbo.LedgerDB.Account_ID
  where dbo.AccountsDB.Client_ID = 'xxxxxx'
  and Journal_Type = 'NLV'
  --and (Journal_Date = '20140128' or Journal_Date = '20131231')
  order by Journal_Date desc

Open in new window


now all I want to do is have a results statement, that says
from the ABOVE CODE,
select [specific column here] where Journal_Date = '20140128',
select [specific column here] where Journal_Date = '20131231'


I want the results to look like if different columns
col1 = amountJan28, col2 = amount dec31

I accomplished it with the below but I think its very convoluted, is there an easier way?

thanks


SELECT
	a1.Account_Description,
	a1.Journal_Amount,
	a2.Journal_Amount
FROM

	(SELECT 
		dbo.LedgerDB.Account_ID,
		dbo.AccountsDB.Account_Description,
		dbo.LedgerDB.Journal_Date,
		dbo.LedgerDB.Journal_Type,
		dbo.LedgerDB.Journal_Amount,
		dbo.LedgerDB.Currency_Code
	FROM [GSS].[dbo].[LedgerDB]
	inner join dbo.AccountsDB on dbo.AccountsDB.Account_ID = dbo.LedgerDB.Account_ID
	where dbo.AccountsDB.Client_ID = '418BB7B8-0180-4A5A-99F6-CE52E60E694F'
	and Journal_Type = 'NLV'
	and Journal_Date = '20131231') a1
	
	INNER JOIN
	
	(SELECT 
		dbo.LedgerDB.Account_ID,
		dbo.AccountsDB.Account_Description,
		dbo.LedgerDB.Journal_Date,
		dbo.LedgerDB.Journal_Type,
		dbo.LedgerDB.Journal_Amount,
		dbo.LedgerDB.Currency_Code
	FROM [GSS].[dbo].[LedgerDB]
	inner join dbo.AccountsDB on dbo.AccountsDB.Account_ID = dbo.LedgerDB.Account_ID
	where dbo.AccountsDB.Client_ID = '418BB7B8-0180-4A5A-99F6-CE52E60E694F'
	and Journal_Type = 'NLV'
	and Journal_Date = '20140128') a2
	
	ON a1.Account_ID = a2.Account_ID

>select [specific column here] where Journal_Date = '20140128',
>select [specific column here] where Journal_Date = '20131231'

Is your question that you want to return a set that has Journal_Date of either of the two values?

{your query}
WHERE Journal_Date = '20140128' OR Journal_Date = '20131231'
.. or ..
WHERE Journal_Date IN ('20140128', '20131231')

Just for kicks and giggles, before we get knee-deep in T-SQL, please give us a 'before and after' data mockup of what you're trying to pull off here.

Specifically, would the return set only have one row, where the 'results..different columns' come from both '20140128' and '20131231'?

yes the return set would have only 1 row, and yes.

before data looks like
journalDate              journalamount
20140128                    50
20141231                    25


want results set to be 1 row
col1        col2
50            25

In that case, with simple T-SQL that you can modify to meet your needs,
   Use UNION ALL instead of a JOIN
   Change your columns so that they are all the same, but only populate the relevant columns, with 0 for all the non-relevant columns
   Then throw the whole thing in a subquery, and sum.

SELECT SUM(a.Col1) as Col1, SUM(a.Col2) as Col2
FROM (
   SELECT journalamount as Col1, 0 as Col2
   FROM YourTable
   WHERE journalDate = 20140128    
   UNION ALL
   SELECT 0 as Col1, journalamount as Col2
   FROM YourTable
   WHERE journalDate = 20141231) a
