the below query works.
select LEAST(currency1,currency2) first, GREATEST(currency1,currency2)
SUM(case when currency1 = greatest(currency1,currency2) then amt1 else amt2 end) amt1,
SUM(case when currency1 = least(currency1,currency2) then amt1 else amt2 end) amt2
group by LEAST(currency1,currency2), GREATEST(currency1,currency2) Received on Wed Apr 23 2008 - 07:57:29 CDT
