Wooops. This one should be correct (hopefully):
select sum(case sign(inv_dt - trunc(sysdate, 'YEAR'))
when 1 then ord_tot when 0 then ord_tot else 0 end) TY, sum(case sign(inv_dt - trunc(sysdate, 'YEAR')) when -1 then ord_tot else 0 end) LY from ar_inv_hdrwhere inv_dt between add_months(trunc(sysdate, 'YEAR'), -12) and sysdate
