SQL Pivot Table

451 Views
Last Modified: 2014-08-18
I have to do a report based on Customer Count for the last 5 years. Output will look like a Pivot Table format.

I have to pick Distinct Customers based on their DOB, assuming that two person can share same name  but on different DOB.

Total Distinct Customer Count, Total Distinct Customer count based on their Account Type and Total missing Customer count from Previous year.

You have both sql 2005 and 2008 listed - that is confusing.
Please inform us exactly what version you are actually using.
(I would particularly like to know if it is SQL Server 2012 or later)

I have SQL 2008 and SQL 2012. I am writing the SQL Query on SQL 2012.

Sorry for the confusion about the version.

Probably doesn't matter on version, but initially thought I might want to use LAG(), but turns out that isn't needed. As a general rule knowing your version is very helpful though. Use a tag or note it in the question please.

From your sample I get this:
| C_YR | WALKIN | MAILORDER | OTHER | TOTAL | MISSING |
|------|--------|-----------|-------|-------|---------|
| 2009 |      2 |         1 |     1 |     4 |       4 |
| 2010 |      0 |         5 |     1 |     6 |       1 |
| 2011 |      1 |         3 |     0 |     4 |       3 |
| 2012 |      1 |         3 |     0 |     4 |       4 |

Using a CTE isn't essential I just started the query that way so it stuck. You could just replace FROM CTE with FROM ( query of cte here ) instead

matching IS by firstname, lastname AND dob
I used a minus instead of a plus in the CTE
I have made that correction in what you see below.

There are 18 rows of data, so my results add to 18, your spreadsheet only added to 13, so the results will differ. I have no idea which 13 you used.

and here is the amended query the change is inside the CTE where instead of deducting one year I add one year.

The total number of clients is correct. It differs to the "expected result" which is missing 3.

My method of calculating "missing" result in a different set of numbers due to a difference in the total numbers and in how it is calculated, for example in the first year there has to be 100% missing, but that has arbitrarily been cut to zero. (this can be accommodated but needs conversation).

So, yes, I do object.

Mmm, maybe too early in the morning. I have overlooked the desire for "distinct" counts which was requested. Sorry.

But I still cannot arrive at 13, instead I get 14. I have arbitrarily set missing to zero in the first year too.
