Hello All,Can anyone please correct the following query,
SELECT e.e_id ,e.fname , Sum (ot.OTHours ) as Tothours,ot.chargesperhour,ot.DateofOT,ot.Payment_Status from employee e inner join OvertimeRecord ot ON ot.E_ID=e.e_id
GROUP BY e.e_id ,e.fname

the error showing is:Column 'OvertimeRecord.ChargesPerHour' is invalid in the select list because it is not contained in either an aggregate function or the GROUP BY clause.

I am a bit new to these.
Thanks In Advance.

SELECT e.e_id ,e.fname ,ot.chargesperhour,ot.DateofOT,ot.Payment_Status, Sum (ot.OTHours ) as Tothours from employee e inner join
OvertimeRecord ot ON ot.E_ID=e.e_id
GROUP BY e.e_id ,e.fname, ot.chargesperhour,ot.DateofOT,ot.Payment_Status

those two queries are not equivalent. you'll get completely different resultset when you add those additional columns. Dont know what exactly OP was looking at
