Hi hope you can help I have a query

SELECT     SUM(res.points) AS points, f1.Driver1
FROM         races AS r INNER JOIN
                      results AS res ON r.raceId = res.raceId INNER JOIN
                      f1users AS f1 ON res.driverId = LEFT(f1.Driver1, 3)
WHERE     (r.year = 2014) AND (f1.submissionID = 51)
GROUP BY f1.Driver1, r.round

Open in new window


which show the total points for a year but what i now need is to double the points if r.round = f1.round  so at mo

it would show

701 Lewis Hamiltion

but new one would show

726 Lewis Hamilton as round 18 matches so he collects a extra 25 points

Give us an example of 'double the points', as that's hard to read when the numbers are 701, 726, 18, and 25.

Not necessary instinctive, but now that you've seen that technique, you'll use it easily again in the future.
