combine two queries

In the following query i want to combine these 2 queries so that i return projectname, Total Days, DocumentCount as ONE dataset... how?

SELECT     dbo.Project.[Project Name], DATEDIFF(day, dbo.[Document].[Document Date], dbo.[Document].[Closing Date]) AS TotalDays
FROM         dbo.Project INNER JOIN
                      dbo.Document_Project ON dbo.Project.ID = dbo.Document_Project.Project_ID INNER JOIN
                      dbo.[Document] ON dbo.Document_Project.Document_ID = dbo.[Document].ID INNER JOIN
                      dbo.State ON dbo.[Document].State_ID = dbo.State.ID
WHERE     (dbo.[Document].[Closing Date] IS NOT NULL)
GROUP BY dbo.Project.[Project Name], dbo.[Document].[Document Date], dbo.[Document].[Closing Date]


SELECT     Project.[Project Name], COUNT(*) AS DocumentCount
FROM         Project INNER JOIN
                      Document_Project ON Project.ID = Document_Project.Project_ID INNER JOIN
                      [Document] ON Document_Project.Document_ID = [Document].ID
GROUP BY Project.[Project Name]

Do you mean union them together?

SELECT     dbo.Project.[Project Name], DATEDIFF(day, dbo.[Document].[Document Date], dbo.[Document].[Closing Date]) AS TotalDays
FROM         dbo.Project INNER JOIN
                      dbo.Document_Project ON dbo.Project.ID = dbo.Document_Project.Project_ID INNER JOIN
                      dbo.[Document] ON dbo.Document_Project.Document_ID = dbo.[Document].ID INNER JOIN
                      dbo.State ON dbo.[Document].State_ID = dbo.State.ID
WHERE     (dbo.[Document].[Closing Date] IS NOT NULL)
GROUP BY dbo.Project.[Project Name], dbo.[Document].[Document Date], dbo.[Document].[Closing Date]

union

SELECT     Project.[Project Name], COUNT(*) AS DocumentCount
FROM         Project INNER JOIN
                      Document_Project ON Project.ID = Document_Project.Project_ID INNER JOIN
                      [Document] ON Document_Project.Document_ID = [Document].ID
GROUP BY Project.[Project Name]

You can use a CTE for do the trick:
 WITH DocCount_CTE (ID, Project_Name, DocumentCount) AS
 (
 SELECT     Project.ID, Project.[Project Name], COUNT(1) 
 FROM         Project 
 INNER JOIN Document_Project ON Project.ID = Document_Project.Project_ID 
 INNER JOIN [Document] ON Document_Project.Document_ID = [Document].ID
 GROUP BY Project.ID, Project.[Project Name] 
)

SELECT     DocCount_CTE.[Project Name], DATEDIFF(day, dbo.[Document].[Document Date], dbo.[Document].[Closing Date]) AS TotalDays, DocCount_CTE.DocumentCount
FROM       DocCount_CTE
INNER JOIN dbo.Document_Project ON DocCount_CTE.ID = dbo.Document_Project.Project_ID 
INNER JOIN dbo.[Document] ON dbo.Document_Project.Document_ID = dbo.[Document].ID 
INNER JOIN dbo.State ON dbo.[Document].State_ID = dbo.State.ID
 WHERE   (dbo.[Document].[Closing Date] IS NOT NULL)

That is a very good start ... the one problem is that it is returning duplicates

I need to know more about your data model. Samples will help.
Also, what do you want to achieve here?

vbnetcoderAuthor Commented:
otherwise it is correct but Total days needs to be the sum per project name --- so project will only be listed once

Vitor MontalvãoMSSQL Senior EngineerCommented:
The problem is that a project as many documents. If you want a row by project the you should also have a document only otherwise will return a row by document.
The only thing that can do what you want is to return only a single document. But which document do you want (the first one? the last one? other one?).
