Hai frns small help,

I have a table called sample and i have the following requirement. i.e i need sum(credit) group by ssn no.

One special condition is as follows:

For each distinct ssn if "flag" has the same CX value,then out of all the records with the same CX value, the highest "credit" value is added to the sum for that "ssn" and the rest are ignored.
If while adding "credit" to the sum and if "credit" value is equal to zero then "sum" value is used for summing else "credit" value is used.
Can any one help me out in trying this logic. I have tried but i could'nt able embed the conditions inbetween the Sql statetment.

Here is the query is used

select * from sample

id ssn credit flag sem
1 101 0 C9 0
2 101 4 C9 3
3 101 4.5 C9 2
4 101 3.5 C1 1
5 102 4.2 C3 3
6 103 0 C1 2

select ssn,flag,sum(case credit when 0 then sem else credit end) as sum from sam2
group by ssn,flag

ssn flag sum_val
101 C1 3.5
103 C1 2.0
102 C3 4.2
101 C9 8.5

The above output is wrong one.

Expected output

101 4.5+3.5=8.0
102 4.2
103 2.0

Any help would be appreciated

Read and follow OraFAQ Forum Guide, especially "How to format your post?" section.
Make sure that lines of code do not exceed 80 characters when you format. Use the "Preview Message" button.
Always post your Oracle version (4 decimals).

Post a test case: create table and insert statements.
I don't understand why 4 is not in the sum of 101.

while you are figuring out how to format your posts, do a google on Oracle Analytics.

Good luck, Kevin
