Sum Union All Queries



Hi All,

I am obviously missing something, but I can not get the following to work. I know I am missing an entry at the end (before the final GROUP BY I think) but can not get to the bottom of what or why. Any pointers appreciated. Code below:

SELECT max(StockCode) as StockIH, Sum(SumQty) as TotalQuantity FROM
SELECT max(tblPOHeader.PODate) as MaxDate, MAX(tblPOHeader.TransType) as MaxType, tblPOLines.StockCode as StockCode, sum(tblPOLines.Quantity) as SumQty FROM tblPOHeader INNER JOIN tblPOLines ON tblPOHeader.PONo = tblPOLines.POHeaderID WHERE tblPOHeader.TransType In ('D','I','P','H','A') AND tblPOHeader.PODate>DATEADD(month, -3, GetDate()) GROUP BY tblPOLines.stockCode
SELECT MAX(tblSalesHeader.SalesInvDate) as MaxDate, max(tblSalesHeader.TransType)as MaxType, tblSalesLines.StockCode as StockCode, sum(-tblSalesLines.Quantity) as SumQty FROM tblSalesHeader INNER JOIN tblSalesLines ON tblSalesHeader.SalesInvNo = tblSalesLines.SalesHeaderID WHERE tblSalesHeader.TransType In ('S','R','L') AND tblSalesHeader.SalesInvDate>DATEADD(month, -3, GetDate()) GROUP BY tblSalesLines.StockCode
SELECT MAX(tblStockAdjustment.AdjDate) as MaxDate, Max(tblStockAdjustment.AdjType) as MaxType, tblStockAdjustment.AdjStockCode as StockCode, Sum(tblStockAdjustment.AdjQty) AS SumQty FROM tblStockAdjustment WHERE tblStockAdjustment.AdjDate >DATEADD(month, -3, GetDate()) GROUP BY tblStockAdjustment.AdjStockCode
) GROUP By StockIH


Please try notice the AS Q1:

) AS Q1 GROUP By StockIH


Many thanks. This works well. I had just got there by adding an AS t before the GROUP BY. I still can't see the reasoning behind the additional code but there you go.

Thanks again


The "additional code" is creating an alias for the sub query. SQL needs this to handle the sub query.


Got it! thanks
