The other day I was given the solution of how to find the last payment date and amount in a table of receipts:

SELECT     [VisitID], CONVERT(numeric(14, 2), - [Amount]) AS LPA, Type, CONVERT(char, [ReceiptDateTime], 101) AS LPD
FROM         (SELECT     VisitID, Amount, Type, ReceiptDateTime, ROW_NUMBER() OVER (Partition BY VisitID
                       ORDER BY ReceiptDateTime DESC) AS rn
FROM         [livedb].[dbo].[BarCollectionTransactions]) AS derirved
WHERE     Amount <> 0 AND Type = 'R' AND VisitID IS NOT NULL

Open in new window


This SQL codes works pretty well.  However, the data reported for the following VisitID came over as Zero:

VisitID                     Amount      ReceiptDateTime                      Type
A10000141660      0.00      2010-05-11 00:00:00.000      R
A10000141660      -237.50      2010-04-23 00:00:00.000      R

As you can see the latest date had a Zero amount.  I need the ouputted amount to be the (237.50)

How do I modify the code to give me the correct data?

thanks

try this:

SELECT [VisitID]
      , CONVERT(numeric(14, 2), - [Amount]) AS LPA
      , Type
      , CONVERT(char, [ReceiptDateTime], 101) AS LPD
FROM (SELECT VisitID
               , Amount
               , Type
               , ReceiptDateTime
               , ROW_NUMBER() OVER (Partition BY VisitID ORDER BY ReceiptDateTime DESC) AS rn
         FROM [livedb].[dbo].[BarCollectionTransactions]
         WHERE Amount <> 0 AND Type = 'R' AND VisitID IS NOT NULL ) AS derirved
