Oracle 11g - Count order_id per dates issue

Hi

I have this below SQL were i want to pull the number of ORDER_ID created per REC_CREATE_TMS.

SELECT DISTINCT (TO_CHAR(REC_CREATE_TMS, 'yy-mm-dd')) AS date_created,
                Count(ORDER_ID)                       AS count
FROM   EXOMGR.EXO_CONF_ORDERS
WHERE  REC_CREATE_TMS >= to_date('14-04-29', 'yy-mm-dd')
GROUP  BY REC_CREATE_TMS
ORDER  BY (TO_CHAR(REC_CREATE_TMS, 'yy-mm-dd'));  

Open in new window


The problem i have based on below picture is that i still get multiple counts for the same date.

How can i fix this?

Thanks for your help.

In Oracle date columns have a time portion built in.

When you group by a date, you are also grouping by the time.

Try:

...
group by TO_CHAR(REC_CREATE_TMS, 'yy-mm-dd')
...


You also likely don't need the DISTINCT.  At least the way you have it.

You won't need DISTINCT. This will fix it:
SELECT TO_CHAR(REC_CREATE_TMS, 'yy-mm-dd') AS date_created,
                Count(ORDER_ID)                       AS count
FROM   EXOMGR.EXO_CONF_ORDERS
WHERE  REC_CREATE_TMS >= to_date('14-04-29', 'yy-mm-dd')
GROUP  BY TO_CHAR(REC_CREATE_TMS, 'yy-mm-dd')
ORDER  BY TO_CHAR(REC_CREATE_TMS, 'yy-mm-dd');
