Last Modified: 2016-07-26
I have a table with 3 columns

Select CustID,  IndividualID,   DateAdded from mytable where YEAR(DateAdded) = YEAR(Getdate())

I prefer to do this with a pivit query if possible?

CustID  IndividualID   DateAdded

I need a count of individuals by month by for each CustIDl
There are 1.5 Million records and growing (25k per year) in the table


Example
CustID   Jan   Feb   etc...
1             10     11   ....

Here is a sample query:
DECLARE @Test TABLE
(
    CustID INT,
    IndividualID INT,
    DateAdded DATETIME
)

INSERT INTO @Test ( CustID, IndividualID, DateAdded )
VALUES ( 1, 1, '2016-01-01'),
    ( 1, 2, '2016-01-15'),
    ( 1, 3, '2016-02-01'),
    ( 1, 4, '2016-02-15'),
    ( 1, 5, '2016-02-28'),
    ( 1, 6, '2016-03-04'),
    ( 1, 7, '2016-03-12'),
    ( 1, 8, '2016-03-16'),
    ( 1, 9, '2016-03-31'),
    ( 1, 10, '2016-04-04'),
    ( 1, 21, '2015-12-25'),
    ( 1, 22, '2015-11-30'),
    ( 2, 11, '2016-01-03'),
    ( 2, 12, '2016-02-02'),
    ( 2, 13, '2016-02-05'),
    ( 2, 14, '2016-02-15'),
    ( 2, 15, '2016-02-21'),
    ( 2, 16, '2016-02-24'),
    ( 2, 17, '2016-03-12'),
    ( 2, 18, '2016-03-16'),
    ( 2, 19, '2016-03-31'),
    ( 2, 20, '2016-04-04'),
    ( 2, 23, '2014-10-31'),
    ( 2, 24, '2013-09-09')

SELECT CustID, [1] Jan, [2] Feb, [3] Mar, [4] Apr
FROM (
    SELECT CustID, IndividualID, MONTH(DateAdded) MonthAdded
    FROM @Test
    WHERE YEAR(DateAdded) = YEAR(GETDATE())
    ) Data
PIVOT (COUNT(IndividualID) FOR MonthAdded IN ([1], [2], [3], [4])) Pvt

It is only putting out the first four months, but you should be able to extend it to your needs.

One concern is the performance of PIVOT on the volume of data in your table. You may be better off using this PIVOT type query:
SELECT CustID,
    SUM(CASE WHEN MONTH(DateAdded) = 1 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) Jan,
    SUM(CASE WHEN MONTH(DateAdded) = 2 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) Feb,
    SUM(CASE WHEN MONTH(DateAdded) = 3 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) Mar,
    SUM(CASE WHEN MONTH(DateAdded) = 4 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) Apr
FROM @Test
WHERE YEAR(DateAdded) = YEAR(GETDATE())
GROUP BY CustID

Because I am filtering on a Type code thie Pivot works very well.
There will never be an all "everything" select on this.

Here is my final code... thanks
