RE: still dont' get how to group by



fixed

I'm no SQL pro, and since no one else commented on this, I may be wrong in regard to CREATE VIEW, but my understanding is that "Group by" means you need to list every file field you'll be selecting (other than things like sum(), count(), etc).

In your case, shouldn't it be
GROUP BY CUSTOMER#, NAME, STATE, ITEM#, PROD_LINE, INVOICE#, ORD_DATE, INV_DATE, ORD_TYPE, CUST_TYPE, QUANTITY, EXTENDED$

As others noted, there is a typo in what you have as CUSTOMERr#

Subject: still dont' get how to group by

Why does this group by not work, what is it I need to do?

Column NAME or expression in SELECT list not valid.
CREATE VIEW PROJ_CRWN1/DATA_WHSV2 AS SELECT CUSTOMER#, NAME, STATE, ITEM#, PROD_LINE, INVOICE#, ORD_DATE, INV_DATE, ORD_TYPE, CUST_TYPE, QUANTITY, EXTENDED$ FROM Proj_Crwn1.DTAWHS GROUP BY CUSTOMERr#
