I have a table that has the following columns:
invoice      Plant    Case_Inv_Amt     Tot_Inv_amt
3115          02               100                   500
3115          02                100                   500
3115          02                 100                 500
3115          05                 100                 500
3115          05                 100                 500
4225          02                  50                   200
4225          05                  50                  200
4225          05                  50                  200
4225          05                  50                  200
etc...............

I need to determine how much of the invoice amount is by plant - so I am looking for the following result:

invoice      Plant           Amt_Per_Plant      Tot_Inv_amt
3115          02                300                           500
3115          05                200                           500
4225          02                50                             200
4225          05                150                           200

Or I could use it in this format:

invoice      Amt_02          Amt_05                   Tot_Inv_amt
3115          300                200                           500
4225          50                  150                           200


I am thinking I need to do a few queries - I need to determine the weighted average for each plant -

Any suggestions

Thanks,

create a query like this

select invoice, Plant, Sum(Case_Inv_Amt) as Amt_Per_Plant, Tot_Inv_amt
from Tablex
group by invoice, Plant, Tot_Inv_amt

this should give you


invoice      Plant           Amt_Per_Plant      Tot_Inv_amt
 3115          02                300                           500
 3115          05                200                           500
 4225          02                50                             200
 4225          05                150                           200

if you are looking for the percentage
use this query

select  T.invoice, T.plant,T.Amt_Per_Plant,T.Tot_Inv_amt,  Format([Amt_Per_Plant ]/[Tot_Inv_amt],"Percent") as Percentage
From
(
SELECT Table1.invoice, Table1.plant, Sum(Table1.Case_Inv_Amt) AS Amt_Per_Plant, Table1.Tot_Inv_amt
FROM Table1
GROUP BY Table1.invoice, Table1.plant, Table1.Tot_Inv_amt
) As T
