Hi all,

I have a problem for the SUM and REPLACE function, the SQL script will as below,


select	DISTINCT 
	  CapitalForecastID 
	  ,Description 
	  ,BudgetOwnerName 
	  ,CapitalForecastCostPerUnit
	  ,' + @SelectColNames + '
	  SUM(' + @SelectColNames + ') AS TotalCost


for the @SelectColNames parameter will return the result as

[Q1 '10]       ,[Q2 '10]       ,[Q3 '10]       ,[Q4 '10]       ,


My Question as below,
(1) How can i SUM all the Quarters as above with the REPLACE symbol (+)

(2) Since from the statement above, i have symbol (') and (,). So i cant write the correct way on that.

Please advice.

Thanks :)

your question isn't really clear. you're trying to create a delimited string of some sort?

provide DDL, sample DML and expected results from that DML for your problem and you'll get the answer sooner.
