# Percentage increase or decrease

I have a SQL script that displays the total amount purchased for the past 3 years I would like to also display the percent of increase or decrease year to year. Not sure how to go about that.
``````SELECT        Vendor_ID, Vendor_Name,
sum(case when ([Year]) = 2013 then Purchase_Ammount else 0 end) as Purchase_Ammount_2013,
sum(case when ([Year]) = 2014 then Purchase_Ammount else 0 end) as Purchase_Ammount_2014,
sum(case when ([Year]) = 2015 then Purchase_Ammount else 0 end) as Purchase_Ammount_2015
FROM            SSG_Vendor_Yearly_Totals
GROUP BY Vendor_ID, Vendor_Name, Class_ID
HAVING        (Class_ID = 'MAN')
``````

Thanks Scott, but I don't think it is calculating properly , it is not calculating the minus percentage, as you can see in the example below 2014  was \$2,145 less than 2013 but it shows a positive 51.5 percent  and from 20014 to 2015 it shows a positive 122.5 percent increase but id is only a \$513 dollar increase

The Class_ID in GROUP BY and HAVING is misplaced here, it should go into a WHERE only.
Since we are using SUMs multiple times, it is time for ad-hoc views (aka inline views, ...)
``````select Vendor_ID, Vendor_Name,
Purchase_Amount_2013,
Purchase_Amount_2014, (Purchase_Amount_2014-Purchase_Amount_2013)/Purchase_Amount_2013 as Percentage_2013,
Purchase_Amount_2015, (Purchase_Amount_2013-Purchase_Amount_2015)/Purchase_Amount_2014 as Percentage_2014
from
(
SELECT        Vendor_ID, Vendor_Name,
sum(case when ([Year]) = 2013 then Purchase_Ammount else 0 end) as Purchase_Ammount_2013,
sum(case when ([Year]) = 2014 then Purchase_Ammount else 0 end) as Purchase_Ammount_2014,
sum(case when ([Year]) = 2015 then Purchase_Ammount else 0 end) as Purchase_Ammount_2015
FROM            SSG_Vendor_Yearly_Totals
where Class_ID = 'MAN'
GROUP BY Vendor_ID, Vendor_Name
) data

Sorry, you're right, I forgot the subtraction in the % calc:

(sum(case when ([Year]) = 2014 then Purchase_Ammount else 0 end) - sum(case when ([Year]) = 2013 then Purchase_Ammount else 0 end)) * 100 /
nullif(sum(case when ([Year]) = 2013 then Purchase_Ammount else 0 end), 0) as Purchase_Percent_2014,
(sum(case when ([Year]) = 2015 then Purchase_Ammount else 0 end) - sum(case when ([Year]) = 2014 then Purchase_Ammount else 0 end)) * 100 /
nullif(sum(case when ([Year]) = 2014 then Purchase_Ammount else 0 end), 0) as Purchase_Percent_2015

And you, skull52, had a type in your original question, and I took it over. And I forgot to make it percent instead of a float:
``````select Vendor_ID, Vendor_Name,
Purchase_Amount_2013,
Purchase_Amount_2014, (Purchase_Amount_2014-Purchase_Amount_2013)*100.0/Purchase_Amount_2013 as Percentage_2013,
Purchase_Amount_2015, (Purchase_Amount_2013-Purchase_Amount_2015)*100.0/Purchase_Amount_2014 as Percentage_2014
from
(
SELECT        Vendor_ID, Vendor_Name,
sum(case when ([Year]) = 2013 then Purchase_Ammount else 0 end) as Purchase_Amount_2013,
sum(case when ([Year]) = 2014 then Purchase_Ammount else 0 end) as Purchase_Amount_2014,
sum(case when ([Year]) = 2015 then Purchase_Ammount else 0 end) as Purchase_Amount_2015
FROM            SSG_Vendor_Yearly_Totals
where Class_ID = 'MAN'
GROUP BY Vendor_ID, Vendor_Name
) data
