SQL Margin Calculation gives divide by zero errors

I have a table showing Revenue (R), Cost (C) & Margin (M) values by Product Category for each period 01 > 12 like in the attached
I have substituted the NULL values with 0 using CASE WHEN SUM(C03) IS NULL THEN 0 ELSE SUM(C03) END

In each period margin calc I use CASE to avoid the Divide by Zero errors when the Revenue values are 0 like
CAST (CASE WHEN Sum([R01])= 0 OR Sum([R01]) IS NULL OR Sum([C01]) = 0 OR Sum([C01]) IS NULL THEN 0 ELSE
((Sum([R01]) - Sum([C01]))/(Sum([R01])))*100 END AS DECIMAL(10,2)) AS 'M01',


However I cannot see how is best to create the margin values using the totals.

What I need is ((RTotal-CTotal)/RTotal)*100 where some of the divisor values are 0

Driving me crazy, thanks.

Hi, could you provide 3 things?

1. the existing query in full
2. sample data (not the query result, the source data)
3. expected result

It appears you are taking normalized data and pivoting this into 36 columns, and you also want a grand total set of columns. (? is that correct ?)
The most efficient way of doing this may not be trying to reuse the 36 column summary.

please note I edited your question to display the attached data in a code block, these are better as we don't have to look at multiple sources to read a question.  :-)

Thanks. That will take a little while to work through.

In the meantime please note that the safest of all date literals in SQL Server is YYYYMMDD
e.g. instead of
DECLARE @FromDate DATE = '2015-01-01', @ToDate DATE = '2015-06-30';

use
DECLARE @FromDate DATE = '20150101', @ToDate DATE = '20150701';

& Best practice for date ranges is NOT to use BETWEEN and whilst you haven't literally used this, you are currently using the equivalent.
see: "Beware of Between"

so, instead of this:
WHERE [Posting Date] >= @FromDate AND [Posting Date] <= @ToDate

use:
WHERE [Posting Date] >= @FromDate AND [Posting Date] < @ToDate

The difference is subtle, but it allows the raw data to be in any datetime precision and your query will remain accurate.

The approach of using 2 joined temp tables leads to many potential NULLs

I would suggest making it far easier by doing this, into a single temp table if you prefer, or as a "derived table" (which is probably how I would do it):
DECLARE @FromDate date = '20150101'
      , @ToDate date = '20150701';

SELECT
      [Global Dimension 2 Code] AS [Product Series]

    , SUM(CASE WHEN [G_L Account No_] LIKE '511%' AND CA.Per = '01' THEN [Amount] END) AS R01
    , SUM(CASE WHEN [G_L Account No_] LIKE '511%' AND CA.Per = '02' THEN [Amount] END) AS R02
    , SUM(CASE WHEN [G_L Account No_] LIKE '511%' AND CA.Per = '03' THEN [Amount] END) AS R03

Note, the row totals are already included.

This approach should result in zeros if there was no values to sum, and from this you should now be able to produce your margin calculations using simple case expressions, even for the totals.

bottom line:
In the "good old days" before "pivot" existed as a TSQL feature we always used case expressions and group by to arrive at pivoted data. In many way it is still the easier method, please don't assume that the "pivot" feature is necessarily the best approach.

& I have also applied the recommended change regarding the date range filter
see: "Beware of Between"

{+ edit}
I overlooked putting " ELSE 0 " in the case expressions. I suggest you include this please.
