Not sure how to explain this but will try.  So I have some purchase order with 1 or more lines.  Not sure how to go about to write this query so that it take the last line with a "PART_ID" and put it into the first line.

In this example, line 2 has the Part_ID.  I want to populate the part id into line 1 and remove line 2.

If there are 3 lines, the 3rd line will have the part ID value.  It will populate the first line and remove line 2 and 3.  

With this example, can this be done via SQL Query?

Sorry for the Oracle syntax on the setup but this should be real close to porting easily to SQL Server.

I didn't include all the columns because they weren't 100% necessary for the test.
drop table tab1 purge;
create table tab1(purc_order_id number, line_no number, part_no varchar2(10), qty number);
insert into tab1 values(112319,1,null,2700);
insert into tab1 values(112319,2,'ABC123',6);
commit;

select * from (
select purc_order_id, line_no, max(part_no) over(partition by purc_order_id) part_no, qty
from tab1
)
where line_no=1;

quick try..
with cte as
(
	select *, row_number() over (partition by PURC_ORDER_ID order by PART_ID ) idx
	from yourTable
)
select * from cte
where idx = 1
order by PURC_ORDER_ID, PART_ID

Try this

select a.* , r.cv PURC_ORDER_ID
from yourTable a
cross apply
(
	SELECT TOp 1 PURC_ORDER_ID cv
	FROM yourtable b
	WHERE b.PART_ID = a.PART_ID
	order by PART_ID
)r

Moving data to the cloud? Find out if you’re ready

Before moving to the cloud, it is important to carefully define your db needs, plan for the migration & understand prod. environment. This wp explains how to define what you need from a cloud provider, plan for the migration & what putting a cloud solution into practice entails.

I think you need to ORDER BY LINE_ID in descending order.
;with cte AS (
SELECT *, ROW_NUMBER() OVER (PARTITION BY PURC_ORDER_ID ORDER BY LINE_ID DESC) rn FROM yourTable) 
SELECT * FROM cte WHERE rn = 1

Open in new window

Also, what do you mean by "remove"? Do you want to delete data from table?

Here it is ..

select a.* , r.cv PURC_ORDER_ID
from yourTable a
cross apply

	SELECT TOp 1 PURC_ORDER_ID cv
	FROM yourtable b
	WHERE b.PART_ID = a.PART_ID
	order by LINE_ID DESC
)r

Ryan Chong/Sharath,
Neither of yours work because it returns the 'DO NOT RECEIVE THIS LINE' row.

Pawan,
"TOP 1" isn't Oracle.

Apologies, I forgot I ventured out of Oracle and this question is actually SQL Server.

Since I cannot test it, it looks like it will also return the 'DO NOT RECEIVE THIS LINE'  row.  Can you confirm it doesn't?

Have you confirmed your example doesn't return the 'DO NOT RECEIVE THIS LINE'  row.   I don;'t have SQL Server to test with but the SQL looks like it will return it.

@Author - Check out the below.... Solution by slightwv works. I have also changed mine.

CREATE TABLE tab1(purc_order_id INT, line_no INT, part_no varchar(10), qty INT)
GO


insert into tab1 values(112319,1,null,2700);
insert into tab1 values(112319,2,'ABC123',6);
GO


--SOLUTION BY slightwv (䄆 Netminder)
SELECT * FROM 
(
	SELECT purc_order_id, line_no, MAX(part_no) OVER(PARTITION BY purc_order_id) part_no, qty
	FROM tab1
)r
WHERE line_no=1;


-- My Solution
SELECT purc_order_id, line_no, qty ,part_no FROM 
(
	SELECT purc_order_id, line_no, ROW_NUMBER() OVER(PARTITION BY purc_order_id ORDER BY part_no DESC) rnk, qty ,part_no
	FROM tab1
)r
WHERE rnk=1;

I know.  I tested it long before I ever posted it.  That is why I also posted my test case.

>> I have also changed mine.

Seems to pretty much be a copy of what I originally posted.  Just a different Window function.  I used MAX and you use ROW_NUMBER.

I'm sure I could rewrite mine a few times if we are just looking for different ways to get the same result.

Well, same as many other experts, examples are tested before posted here, or at least working fine in test environment.

Do you simply want the PART_ID from the highest LINE_NO row joined with all remaining columns from the lowest LINE_NO row? Does it matter if the lowest LINE_NO row has a null PART_ID or not? What if the highest LINE_NO row has a null PART_ID?

And are you trying to create a new result set or do you actually want to update the original table?
