Hello Experts Exchange
I'm trying to write a SQL script that has three tables, 1 table has a list of all the Area's, the other two tables have the data that I want to sum up.

I have a table with the Area's so that if a Area has no data it comes back as zero.

One table has a column called Total Lost Hours, the other table has Target_Lost_Hours and I want to sum up these by Area.

I have a script which is the following;

select
    cat.[Area], 
    ISNULL([Total Lost Hours],0) AS [Total Lost Hours],
	ISNULL([Target_Lost_Hours],0) AS [Target_Lost_Hours]
from
    [dbo].[MachineLosses_Area] cat left join
    (SELECT   a.[Area], Isnull(SUM(b.[Total Lost Hours]),0) AS [Total Lost Hours], Isnull(SUM(c.[Target_Lost_Hours]),0) AS [Target_Lost_Hours]
    FROM  [dbo].[MachineLosses_Area] a       
    left outer join [dbo].[MachineLosses_View] b on a.[Area] = b.[Area/Line/Machine]
	left outer join [dbo].[TargetLosses_View] c on a.[Area] = c.[Area] and b.[Date] = c.[Date]
    where b.[date] between '01/10/2014' and '20/10/2014'
	GROUP BY a.[Area]
    ) sub on cat.[Area] = sub.[Area]
ORDER BY 
    [Total Lost Hours] DESC

Open in new window


The script comes back but the values are double what they should be.

Can you see where I can change the script to achive my goal please?

Regards

Try it with Common Table Expression:
with Total_CTE (Area, [Total Lost Hours])
as
(SELECT a.[Area], SUM(b.[Total Lost Hours]) 
	FROM  [dbo].[MachineLosses_Area] a       
		inner join [dbo].[MachineLosses_View] b on a.[Area] = b.[Area/Line/Machine]
	where b.[date] between '01/10/2014' and '20/10/2014'
	GROUP BY a.[Area]),
 Targer_CTE (Area, [Target_Lost_Hours])
as	
(SELECT a.[Area], SUM(c.[Target_Lost_Hours])
	FROM  [dbo].[MachineLosses_Area] a       
		inner join [dbo].[TargetLosses_View] c on a.[Area] = c.[Area] 
	where c.[date] between '01/10/2014' and '20/10/2014'
	GROUP BY a.[Area])
select
    cat.[Area], 
    ISNULL(sub1.[Total Lost Hours],0) AS [Total Lost Hours],
	ISNULL(sub2.[Target_Lost_Hours],0) AS [Target_Lost_Hours]
from [dbo].[MachineLosses_Area] cat 
	inner join Total_CTE sub1 on cat.[Area] = sub1.[Area]
	inner join Targer_CTE sub2 on cat.[Area] = sub2.[Area]
ORDER BY sub1.[Total Lost Hours] DESC

Hello Vitor
The script gives me the correct values now, but when a area has 0 in the sum's it does not show that in the query results.

That's because I used INNER JOIN. Change both INNER JOIN in CTE's to LEFT JOIN and you'll get those zeros.

While sample data and table structures, along with expected results, would be of great help in determining the best solution, you might be able to use analytic functions and avoid subqueries - what does the following provide?

select a.[Area],
isnull(sum(b.[Total Lost Hours]) over (partition by a.area order by [b.Total Lost Hours] desc),0) as [Total Lost Hours],
isnull(sum(c.[Target Lost Hours]) over (partition by a.area order by [c.Target Lost Hours] desc),0) as [Target Lost Hours]
from [MachineLosses_Area] as a
left outer join [MachineLosses_View] as b
on a.[Area] = b.[Area/Line/Machine]
left outer join [TargetLosses_View] as c
on a.[Area] = c.[Area] and b.[Date] = c.[Date]
where b.[Date] between '01/10/2014' and '20/10/2014';
