Hi Guys, I have the following SQL Statement which produces 4 lines of output for two stores A and B. Record 1 output belongs to Store A and records 2,3 and 4 belong to Store B.
Is it possible to display the above fields for only record 1 and only the price field for records 2, 3 and 4 on the same line using SQL?
+1 on aliasing each table
+1 on the semicolon terminator
-1000 on the SQL-89 syntax. Time to switch over to SQL-92 (explicit joins). Like this:
You'll notice that the explicit joins make it painfully obvious that you've forgotten to "join" description to anything else.
Now back to your question, yes it is possible. Are you always going to have one line from Store A, and two from Store B? If so you can "join back" to Pricing three times and hard code some constraints. I can't imagine that you're really looking to do that though - more likely, you want to look at a dynamic pivot.
