I think the "new" Web Query does pivot table like stuff....

Actually, I believe QM does it the "old fashioned" way. When you indicate
a form's column is to be
summed, QM simply adds up the data as it reads the results set. Same way
you'd do it with RPG.

The big benefit, besides being easier, is that you only hit the data once
instead of twice.

But I've used the same technique you posted myself when I had a QM report
that needed daily invoice
detail, daily total, plus Month-to-date and Year-to-date.

When outputting .csv I prefer to leave off totals so the users can easily
summarize the data , in
Excel I assume, however they want. I'm a big, big fan of Excel pivot
tables. So are the users I've
shown them too.

Actually, I wish IBM would add some pivot functionality to DB2.

Ok, Charles wins.... I rarely use QM forms, generally using
QM query objects to produce outfiles destined for email as
csv attachments...... I would assume that QM is implementing
something along the lines of my CTE example.

Thanks for pointing this out.

In the "USAGE" column of the QM form, specify SUM.

Eric - I tried this and it works well! How would the GRAND
Totals be
included?

Not really... It's quite easy to produce summary data in SQL....

Note all the fields that you need calculate a summary result.
All of these fields will use functions like SUM(), MIN(), MAX(),
AVG() and so forth.

All other fields (Keys, control breaks, etc.) need to
specified in the
Group By clause. All of these fields in the Group By,
taken together,
represent a DISTINCT grouping, and will result in a single
row of the
result set. It works the same way as using a DISTINCT clause in a
simple select, where the DB finds every permutation of values that
exist in the DB for those columns, and returns a single row
for each
unique grouping.

Here's a basic query using the Group By... The assignment might be
worded like "Produce a listing of all active customers,
showing total
sales, cost, and a count of orders for the prior 12 months.
Sort the
list by total sales (descending)."


Select c.CustNo, c.CustName,
sum(s.InvTtl$) as TtlSls,
sum(s.InvCost) as TtlCost,
count(distinct s.Order#) as TtlOrders
From CustMst c left outer join
InvHist s on (c.CustNo=s.CustNo and s.OrDate >=
(Current_Date - 1
years)) Where c.CustStatus = 'Active'
Group By c.CustNo, c.CustName
Order By 3 desc


This query returns a row for all "Active" customers in the CustMst
file (see the Where clause), and joins to the Invoice
history file to
return Sales, Cost, and OrderCount, if any.
The two tables are joined on the CustNo fields in both
files, and is
specified in the ON clause following the table being
joined. Note the
clause with OrDate; this limits the joined record to orders dated
within the last year.

The placement of the date test is important. I put it in the ON
clause, because putting it in the Where clause would cause
our query
to eliminate any rows where the join was null.
Where clause applies to all rows in a result set. If we
were to test
s.OrDate >= (Current_Date - 1
years) in the Where clause, we would remove all customers
that had no
sales in the past year. By moving this to the ON clause, we can
evaluate the date of invoice at the time that we select the
records to
join. If a record fails to match the criteria, it is
omitted from the
joined result.

The Group By lists the control break fields, and finally,
the returned
result set is ordered descending on the third column in the result
(Total Sales).

hth,
Eric

We're using STRQMQRY because we need to pass a parameter,
and can't do
it with RUNQRY.

However, I reckon it may be easiest to just modify my query
to produce
a file with the detail, then create a second query to
summarize it to
printed output. Since the second query won't require a
parameter, we
can just use RUNQRY on it.

Thanks

|Summary Output with STRQMQRY
|
|
|
|
|
|
|We're using STRQMQRY on a Query/400 QRYDFN. The query
when run from
|Query/400 is defined to return summary records only, but
when run from
|STRQMQRY in a CL program (or interactively), it returns detail.
|
|I found a post from 2003 which indicated a similar problem, and
|suggested running RTVQMFORM to generate a source file from
the QRYDFN,
|then using CRTQMFORM to create a form to use on the
STRQMQRY QMFORM
|parameter. I tried that, but I still get detail.
|
|Is there anyway to make this thing give me summary records only ?
|
|Thanks
