I have the following query that is working fine.  The only thing i want to do now is a row for the total records returned

            SELECT  P.[Project Name], Count(DP.Document_ID)
  FROM [MyData].[dbo].[Document_Project] DP
   INNER JOIN  [MyData].[dbo].[Document_Files] DF
    ON DF.Document_ID = dp.Document_ID
      INNER JOIN [MyData].[dbo].Project P
          ON P.ID = dp.Project_ID  
          Group By P.[Project Name]  


So, the data would look something like this:

Project         count   Total
AA Project      2         7
bb project      2         7
cc Project      3         7
dd              2         7

Actually the total column should say 9 ...dah!  meaning the sum of all the counts

I get an error:

Column  Document_Project.Document_ID' is invalid in the select list because it is not contained in either an aggregate function or the GROUP BY clause.

According to my understanding, you don't have that as a column.

You have code something like:

            SELECT  P.[Project Name], Count(DP.Document_ID) as MyCount, Count(DP.Document_ID) OVER() as MyTotal
  FROM [MyData].[dbo].[Document_Project] DP
   INNER JOIN  [MyData].[dbo].[Document_Files] DF
    ON DF.Document_ID = dp.Document_ID
      INNER JOIN [MyData].[dbo].Project P
          ON P.ID = dp.Project_ID  
          Group By P.[Project Name]  

Open in new window


Is this correct? If not, please post your current code.

This is the code:

       SELECT  P.[Project Name], Count(DP.Document_ID) as MyCount, Count(DP.Document_ID) OVER() as MyTotal
  FROM [Document_Project] DP
   INNER JOIN  [Document_Files] DF
    ON DF.Document_ID = dp.Document_ID
      INNER JOIN Project P
          ON P.ID = dp.Project_ID  
          Group By P.[Project Name]  

and i get this error:

Column 'Document_Project.Document_ID' is invalid in the select list because it is not contained in either an aggregate function or the GROUP BY clause.

Try this instead as the first line:

SELECT  P.[Project Name], Count(DP.Document_ID) as MyCount, Count(*) OVER() as MyTotal

Let's try something different. If the first part of your code works right, try this:

With MyTable as 
(SELECT  P.[Project Name] as Project, Count(DP.Document_ID) as MyCount
  FROM [MyData].[dbo].[Document_Project] DP
   INNER JOIN  [MyData].[dbo].[Document_Files] DF
    ON DF.Document_ID = dp.Document_ID
      INNER JOIN [MyData].[dbo].Project P
          ON P.ID = dp.Project_ID  
          Group By P.[Project Name])
Select Project, MyCount, sum(MyCount) OVER(Order by Project) as MyTotal
From MyTable

That is close... this is the result.  It would be ideal if the 3rd row was alway the total so in this case 9.

AA Project      2      2
bb project      2      4
ccc Project      3      7
sss                  2      9

Change line 9 to

Select Project, MyCount, sum(MyCount) OVER(Order by Project ROWS UNBOUNDED PRECEDING AND UNBOUNDED FOLLOWING) as MyTotal
