Hi Experts,

I am using SyBase SQL Anywhere v10. Here is my query:

select punchpayroll.opendate, empnum, payrate, jobtype, reghours, othours, punchin, punchout, length, overtimepay 
from dba.punchpayroll, dba.overtime, dba.overtimehourrule 
where punchpayroll.punchindex = overtime.punchindex and overtime.ruleid = overtimehourrule.ruleid and punchpayroll.opendate between 20150101 and 20150115

Open in new window


And it generates the attached RESULTS. If you see there in the highlighted red box I am trying to get those 2 results on the same line BUT have the Overtime 150 and 200 separated out. See DESIRED RESULTS.

Help?

OK, you're looking for an outer join per your comment.  I'm no Sybase expert, but it claims to support T-SQL syntax on that, so I think I can write you a query.

Additionally, you want some kind of pivot going on.  Again, I'm no Sybase expert, but I think I can write a basic query that should get you what you need.

select punchpayroll.opendate, empnum, payrate, jobtype, reghours, othours, punchin, punchout, length, overtimepay 
from dba.punchpayroll LEFT OUTER JOIN dba.overtime ON punchpayroll.punchindex = overtime.punchindex 
LEFT OUTER JOIN dba.overtimehourrule ON overtime.ruleid = overtimehourrule.ruleid
where  punchpayroll.opendate between 20150101 and 20150115

Open in new window


That should solve the lack of records.  Taking it a step further to work on the pivot ...
select punchpayroll.opendate, empnum, payrate, jobtype, reghours, othours, punchin, punchout, 
Sum(Case When overtimepay =150 then length else 0 end) as LengthOT150, 
Sum(Case When overtimepay =200 then length else 0 end) as LengthOT200
from dba.punchpayroll LEFT OUTER JOIN dba.overtime ON punchpayroll.punchindex = overtime.punchindex 
LEFT OUTER JOIN dba.overtimehourrule ON overtime.ruleid = overtimehourrule.ruleid
where  punchpayroll.opendate between 20150101 and 20150115
GROUP BY punchpayroll.opendate, empnum, payrate, jobtype, reghours, othours, punchin, punchout

Are you only looking for records where everything is the same but the length and overtime? if so you want them combined on one row?
