SQL with Subqueries

Hi!

I try to run this SQL:

1. SELECT EBELN, EBELP, BWART, CHARG, MATNR, MJAHR, MENGE, MEINS, WERKS
2. FROM [ENLIST_WH_SQL].[dbo].[MSEG] WHERE EBELN + EBELP IN
3. (SELECT COUNT(MANDT) AS NumberOut, EBELN + EBELP
4. FROM [ENLIST_WH_SQL].[dbo].[MSEG]
5. WHERE (BWART = '643' OR BWART = '641' OR BWART = '161') AND MATNR > '000000003500000000' AND MATNR
6. < '000000006900000000' GROUP BY EBELN + EBELP) x INNER JOIN
7. (SELECT COUNT(MANDT), EBELN + EBELP
8. FROM [ENLIST_WH_SQL].[dbo].[MSEG]
9. WHERE BWART = '101' OR BWART = '644' OR BWART = '102' GROUP BY EBELN + EBELP) y ON x.EBELN + x.EBELP =
10. y.EBELN + y.EBELP
11. WHERE y.COUNT(MANDT) < x.COUNT(MANDT)

but get the error:

Msg 170, Level 15, State 1, Line 5
Line 5: Incorrect syntax near 'x'.
Msg 170, Level 15, State 1, Line 8
Line 8: Incorrect syntax near 'y'.

This is what I try to obtain in human text:
Select all interrelated EBELN + EBELP (3.) and count how many occurences with COUNT(MANDT). This seach is related to x.
Select all interrelated EBELN + EBELP (7.) with other filter criterias in the same table and count how many occurences with COUNT(MANDT). This seach is related to y.
The x and y are joined and the counts is used to filter (11.)
Finally this combined search result is used to get BWART, CHARG, MATNR, MJAHR, MENGE, MEINS, WERKS from the same table MSEG (1.).

Perhaps it is too ambitious to retrieve all this information in one SQL but in order to be usable in our situation, it must be in one retrieval.

Any ideas to solve this?

Try using temp tables since like this is bit complicated and complex to maintain...

Is this what you are after:

SELECT COUNT(MANDT) AS NumberOut, EBELN + EBELP as value
into #X
FROM [ENLIST_WH_SQL].[dbo].[MSEG]
WHERE (BWART = '643' OR BWART = '641' OR BWART = '161') AND MATNR > '000000003500000000' AND MATNR < '000000006900000000' 
GROUP BY EBELN + EBELP

SELECT COUNT(MANDT) AS NumberOut, EBELN + EBELP as value
into #Y
FROM [ENLIST_WH_SQL].[dbo].[MSEG]
WHERE BWART = '101' OR BWART = '644' OR BWART = '102' 
GROUP BY EBELN + EBELP


SELECT EBELN, EBELP, BWART, CHARG, MATNR, MJAHR, MENGE, MEINS, WERKS
FROM [ENLIST_WH_SQL].[dbo].[MSEG] 
WHERE EBELN + EBELP IN
(select X.VALUE 
FROM #X INNER JOIN #y ON x.VALUE =  y.VALUE
WHERE y.NumberOut < x.NumberOut )

Hi samo4fun!

I have tried to run your suggestion and get this message:

Do you have suggestions to this?

You can't do it as you did. Here's a single statement solution using common table expression:
WITH x (EBELN_EBELP, NumberOut)
AS
(SELECT (EBELN + EBELP), COUNT(MANDT) AS 
FROM [ENLIST_WH_SQL].[dbo].[MSEG]
WHERE (BWART = '643' OR BWART = '641' OR BWART = '161')
  AND MATNR > '000000003500000000' AND MATNR < '000000006900000000' 
GROUP BY (EBELN + EBELP)),
y (EBELN_EBELP, NumberOut) AS
(SELECT (EBELN + EBELP), COUNT(MANDT) AS NumberOut
FROM [ENLIST_WH_SQL].[dbo].[MSEG]
WHERE (BWART = '101' OR BWART = '644' OR BWART = '102' )
GROUP BY (EBELN + EBELP))
							
SELECT m.EBELN, m.EBELP, m.BWART, m.CHARG, m.MATNR, m.MJAHR, m.MENGE, m.MEINS, m.WERKS, x.EBELN_EBELP, x.NumberOut, y.EBELN_EBELP, y.NumberOut
FROM [ENLIST_WH_SQL].[dbo].[MSEG] m
LEFT OUTER JOIN x ON x.EBELN_EBELP = m.EBELN + m.EBELP
LEFT OUTER JOIN y ON y.EBELN_EBELP = m.EBELN + m.EBELP

Hi!

I tried to run the 3 parts in a SQL Server 2008 window and I have tried the same with your new suggestion - it gives me this:

Msg 156, Level 15, State 1, Line 1
Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'WITH'.
Msg 156, Level 15, State 1, Line 4
Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'FROM'.

try this. Without any data to test against I can't guarantee it's correct, but I think it's true to your intent.

Try to put a ';' before the WITH keyword:

The 12:02 still gives an error but 12:03 runs without errors. Thank you so far - I will check the result of the query and come back!

I HAD this thing working:

SELECT EBELN, EBELP, BWART, CHARG, MATNR, MJAHR, MENGE, MEINS, WERKS
FROM [ENLIST_WH_SQL].[dbo].[MSEG] WHERE EBELN + EBELP IN
    (SELECT COUNT(MANDT) AS NumberOut, EBELN + EBELP
    FROM [ENLIST_WH_SQL].[dbo].[MSEG]
    WHERE (BWART = '643' OR BWART = '641' OR BWART = '161') AND MATNR > '000000003500000000' AND MATNR < '000000006900000000') x INNER JOIN
    (SELECT COUNT(MANDT), EBELN + EBELP
    FROM [ENLIST_WH_SQL].[dbo].[MSEG]
    WHERE BWART = '101' OR BWART = '644' OR BWART = '102') y ON x.EBELN + x.EBELP = y.EBELN + y.EBELP
WHERE y.COUNT(MANDT) < x.COUNT(MANDT) GROUP BY EBELN + EBELP

but when I run it today, I get the error:

I am very sorry - I had selected a wrong SQL (I had tried to make myself) by mistake and therefore it was badly formed. Once again: my apologies!

I found the SQL based on your very well formed SQL and it works perfectly!
