SQL Help This- timing metric

Hello All,
There are three tables in SQLServer.
 Weekly_Number – this table lists out the a specified metric numbers for a given condition of account + prodType + entire Week
WeekEndToStart – is a calendar list that gives the initiation / start and end dates for a given week number.
Daily_Number – this table lists out the a specified metric numbers for a given condition of account + prodType + single date

For example – lets say – in [weekly_Number] table –for account Ac1 and prodType (cups34) in W1 was 100. So  now since there are 5 working days in a week and we know the initiation and end dates of all week – we allocate 100/5 (=20) for those 5 working days. We skip the two weekend days. See the Daily_Number for what I am saying. I have attached the sql to create tables in Sql Server and add data to it just like what you see in excel.



Please help as to what SQL I should write…

so how do it distribute the weekly metric into single dated day look?

RayneAuthor Commented:
I think it makes sense to add a extra column like this?
account      prodType      Dates_Daily      Sunday/Saturday      Metric_Daily
Ac1      cups34      10/1/2014      n      20
Ac1      cups34      10/2/2014      n      20
Ac1      cups34      10/3/2014      n      20
Ac1      cups34      10/4/2014      Y      0
Ac1      cups34      10/5/2014      Y      0
Ac1      cups34      10/6/2014      n      20
Ac1      cups34      10/7/2014      n      20

Big Business Goals? Which KPIs Will Help You

The most successful MSPs rely on metrics – known as key performance indicators (KPIs) – for making informed decisions that help their businesses thrive, rather than just survive. This eBook provides an overview of the most important KPIs used by top MSPs.

Jim HornMicrosoft SQL Server Developer, Architect, and AuthorCommented:
The problem you're going to have here is handling holidays where a day Monday-Friday is not a business day.  SQL Server has no function to get US Federal, New York City, Manchester United, or the Rick Springfield Fan Club of East Orange, New Jersey holidays, as they are wildly different and can change.

If you want to expand your question to 'How to I create a calendar table with dates so I can add my own custom holidays', then this article is a demo with code on how to pull that off, complete with logic on dealing with holidays such as 'The third Thursday in November'.

Then, in any given set you can just sum the Business Days column for total business days, count the Business Days column for total days, and the math will be correct.

Good luck

Hello Jim,

actually i don't need to handle any holidays which are in weekday ...so i am cool with not considering federal/national  holidays. I only need to consider Sunday/Saturday for the holiday consideration...

Do you want to get the result as shown in DAILY_Number table from [a_WeekToStartEnd] and [a_Weekly_Number] tables?
If so, you can try this query. one data issue in sample data: you have week as W1 for all your weeks. I think it should be W1,W2,W3,W4.
Anyway, try this query.
 
;with a_WeekToStartEnd_CTE as (
select [Week],st,[end] from a_WeekToStartEnd union all
select [Week],dateadd(d,1,st),[end] from a_WeekToStartEnd_CTE where dateadd(d,1,st) <= [end])
select t2.Account,t2.prodType,t1.st Dates_Daily,case when datepart(dw,st) in (1,7) then 0 else Metric/5 end Metric_Daily
  from a_WeekToStartEnd_CTE t1
  join [a_Weekly_Number] t2 on t1.[Week] = t2.[Week]
  order by st

/* result
Account	prodType	Dates_Daily	Metric_Daily
Ac1	cups34	2014-10-01	20.000000

Yeah, the actual 300 of weekly table is now totaling to 1200 in the daily table , so that's a issue

OK, lets scrap the a_weekTostartEnd !

what if I am referencing a calendar table that has all the dates (at a daily level) along with the week start and end date?
Will that make it any easier?

20141001      W1      10/1/2014      10/7/2014

Did you correct the test data in your table and try?

insert into [myDBName]..[a_WeekToStartEnd] values('W1','10/01/2014','10/07/2014')
insert into [myDBName]..[a_WeekToStartEnd] values('W1','10/08/2014','10/14/2014')
insert into [myDBName]..[a_WeekToStartEnd] values('W1','10/15/2014','10/21/2014')
