Hi,

have you used cross database reference in the View.

Since if it is a simple View then it will work perfectly as I have tested it locally and it is working fine..

CREATE VIEW [dbo].[Employee_VW]
AS
SELECT DISTINCT YEAR(FullDateAlternateKey) AS YEAR, MONTH(FullDateAlternateKey) AS MONTH, YEAR(FullDateAlternateKey) * 2 AS AMOUNT, MONTH(FullDateAlternateKey) * 2.5 AS MET
FROM            [AdventureWorksDW2012].[dbo].[DimDate]


GO

select
concat(year,'-',(select left(datename(month,dateadd(month, month , -1)),3))) [Date],
sum(amount) [amount],
sum
(
[Met]
)
[Order] from [dbo].[Employee_VW]
group by year,month
order by year,month

assuming that MET is the bit field, you need to do:

SUM(cast(MET as int))

Met data type is decimal not bit.

View structure:
Year      int
Month      int
[Met]      decimal
[amount]      int

the issue is defintively then in the view Employee_vw, please post that full query

select concat(year,'-', left(datename(month,dateadd(month, month , -1)),3) ) [Date]
, sum(amount) [amount]
, sum([Met]) [Order] 
from Employee_vw
group by year,month
order by year,month
