2015      1       12
2015      1       5
2015      2       16

I want the result like this.

year  moth date
2015 2  16
2015 2  12
2015 2  2
2015 1  26
etc


declare @trancode varchar(3)

set @trancode = 'aaa'

select   YEAR(TimeStamp) as [year], MONTH(TimeStamp) as [month], DATEPART(day,timestamp) as [Date]
from tabl1
where trancode =@trancode and YEAR(TimeStamp) >= YEAR(GETDATE()) - 2
group by YEAR(TimeStamp), MONTH(TimeStamp), DATEPART(day,timestamp)

order by   [month] desc

This is the order in TSQL:
1. SELECT
2. FROM
3. WHERE
4. GROUP BY
5. HAVING
6. ORDER BY

But logical query processing order is:
1. FROM
2. WHERE
3. GROUP BY
4. HAVING
5. SELECT
6. ORDER BY

Meaning the alias [month] from SELECT is available for ORDER BY.

select convert (cast(year as varchar(4)) + '/' + cast(month as varchar(2)) + '/' + cast(day as varchar(2)), 111) as newDate
order by year desc, order by month desc, order by day desc

I was typing to fast . . . correct code below:

select convert (cast(year as varchar(4)) + '/' + cast(month as varchar(2)) + '/' + cast(date as varchar(2)), 111) as newDate
order by year desc, month desc, date desc

Change the date to an integer and order by that.

I'll assume the top part of your query works

select   YEAR(TimeStamp) as [year], MONTH(TimeStamp) as [month], DATEPART(day,timestamp) as [Date]
from tabl1
where trancode =@trancode and YEAR(TimeStamp) >= YEAR(GETDATE()) - 2

Open in new window


Add this
order by cast(cast(year(timestamp) as nvarchar(4)) + right('0' + cast(month(timestamp) as nvarchar(2)), 2) + right('0' + cast(day(timestamp) as nvarchar(2)), 2) as int) desc

Open in new window

Just as a quick observation, as you are using SQL terms as column names, so you really should protect from possible misinterpretation by using [] or " "

order by [year] desc, [month] desc, [date] desc

or, don't use SQL terms as column names :)
