Need SQL query to yield dates range for part status

Hi
I have a table/query result set that needs to be consolidated. This is best explained via the attached file.
Essentially the table needs to be consolidated from it's current 23 rows to 4 rows, acheived by determining the date range for each part status change.

At present there is a row for every month regardless of whether the status changes or not, I need to remove these redundant rows and replace with single a row that shows the MAX and MIN date ranges for that status.
As I said, the file will best explain this - thanks a lot!!

select [part num], [site], [status], Min([Status start date]) as [status start date]
,Max([status end date]) as [status end date]
from MyTable
Group by
[part num], [site], [status]

thanks Dulton but sorry - but that only gives 2 rows of data, 4 rows are expected

It's not that easy, because status can repeat. min/max queries would get you min date of period1 and max date of period2.

I doubt it can be done with simple query, as you can't simply group by status.

You may try to accomplish this using LAG() or LEAD().

See http://blog.sqlauthority.com/2013/09/22/sql-server-how-to-access-the-previous-row-and-next-row-value-in-select-statement/

Bye, Olaf.

I didn't type your whole table, just enough to show the concept.

you can establish an initial order on this table by using row_number on some field that isnt' changing. I chose [part num]... that'll establish a unique incrementing integer on each row, preserving the original order.

from there, it's just a recursive CTE, looping through the dataset, incrementing by the row_number field and seeing when the status changes.




declare @MyTable table
([part num] varchar(10)
,[site] varchar(10)
,[status] varchar(10)
,[status start date] date
,[status end date] date

insert into @MyTable ([part num], [site],  [status], [status start date], [status end date])


                  values ('D25538-402','USPSS','EOL','1/29/2012','2/25/2012')

thanks for the link Olaf
LAG and LEAD functions look really cool! but although I believe I'm running SQL server 2012 (SQL Server 11.0.3000) - the functions are not available for me - any idea of how I may enable them? thanks

hi Dulton, thanks for the code - when I ran it I saw an unusual result:
For the second occurentce of "EOL" the status end date should be "2012-06-30" but it is resulting as "2012-05-26"
- any ideas why?
Fergal

part num      site      status      status start date      status end date

D25538-402      USPSS      EOL      2012-01-29      2012-02-25
D25538-402      USPSS      RETIRED      2012-02-26      2012-05-26
D25538-402      USPSS      EOL      2012-05-27      2012-05-26
D25538-402      USPSS      RETIRED      2012-07-01      2012-12-28

The end date didn't need wrapped in a case statement.

this should work.
declare @MyTable table
([part num] varchar(10)
,[site] varchar(10)

,[status start date] date
,[status end date] date

insert into @MyTable ([part num], [site],  [status], [status start date], [status end date])

Well, not without SQL2012, but the article shows an alternative using CTE, which is similar to what the others here already do.

your original example data doesn't show multiple site data. that's why the code didn't consider it.

try the below for the sample data you showed in post: 40006559

declare @MyTable table
([part num] varchar(10)
,[site] varchar(10)
,[status] varchar(10)
,[status start date] date
,[status end date] date
)

insert into @MyTable ([part num], [site],  [status], [status start date], [status end date])


                  values ('D25538-402','JAPAN','RETIRED','8/26/2012','9/29/2012')
                                ,('D25538-402','JAPAN','RETIRED','9/30/2012','11/02/2012')

Thanks a lot for the help

I have split the points as Olaf got me pointed to LAG/LEAD which I have found to be very powerful, efficient and easy to use.
If I didn't have SQL 2012, then Dulton's solution is what I would use.

Thanks guys!
