i have a table with these columns

Customer ID
ScheduleDate
Activity
Scheduled

I need a query that pulls the first row for each customerID that has 2 columns, the one column would be the first entry for the customer with the criteria of scheduled = 1 and then the next column would be the first entry in the list where scheduled = 0

the data is a list with multiple entries for each customer on any given day, can be as many as 10 entries per customer, and each row can have an entry of scheduled =1 or 0

Thanks

There are number of ways you can achieve it. With correlated queries:
SELECT a.CustomerID,
(SELECT MIN(ScheduleDate) FROM tbl WHERE CustomerID = a.CustomerID and scheduled = 1) as sch_1,
(SELECT MIN(ScheduleDate) FROM tbl WHERE CustomerID = a.CustomerID and scheduled = 0) as sch_0
FROM tbl a
GROUP BY a.CustomerID

Open in new window

More cool way with the ROW_NUMBER() window function:
with e as (
SELECT CustomerID,
scheduled,
ScheduleDate,
ROW_NUMBER() OVER(PARTITION BY CustomerID, scheduled ORDER BY ScheduleDate) rn
FROM tbl)
SELECT e1.CustomerID, e1.ScheduleDate as sch_1, e2.ScheduleDate as sch_0
FROM e e1 LEFT JOIN e e2 ON e1.CustomerID=e2.CustomerID AND e1.scheduled=1 and e2.scheduled=0 and e1.rn=1 and e2.rn=1

Open in new window

With just a plain GROUP BY:
SELECT CustomerID,
MIN(CASE WHEN scheduled = 1 THEN ScheduleDate END) as sch_1,
MIN(CASE WHEN scheduled = 0 THEN ScheduleDate END) as sch_0
FROM tbl
GROUP BY CustomerID

Open in new window


All should produce the same result

I understood your question a little different from Chaau so if I'm right then this should work for you:
SELECT [Customer ID], scheduled, MIN(ScheduleDate) MinScheduleDate
FROM tblName
GROUP BY [Customer ID], scheduled
