When I put my query that I wish to use as a view into the view designer and click into the designer window it parses one of the columns I am using and puts single quote round it - why?
This is then causing data loss as I run a procedure with an update statement looking at these views and joining to this column, so instead of the column values being what I set they are all the values of the name of the column.
Query is as below but with names etc replaced by mock up columns, conditions and joins. I never built this and am trying to enhance it for some more requirements in absence of the original designer. It's to show a sum, total and percentage
The column that is bold is the one that when I put in view designer it changes to a column name to a column value - i.e. sinlge quotes appear round it.
SELECT Column1 AS Alias1
,Column2 AS Alias2
CASE WHEN Sum1 = 0 THEN 0 ELSE
round(Sum1 / Total1 * 100, 2)
END AS Win Rate
FROM (SELECT [Column1]
, Column4 AS 'Column2'
, SUM(ISNULL(ColumnOrderValue, 0)) AS Sum1
SELECT ROUND(SUM(ISNULL(ColumnOrderValue, 0)), 2) AS Order$
FROM dbo.RawData AS r2
AND ([Column1] = r1.[Column1])
AND (Column3 = r1.Column3)
AND (Column4 = r1.Column4)
GROUP BY Column1, Column4
) AS Total1
FROM dbo.RawDAta AS r1
GROUP BY [Column1], Column4, Column3) AS t1
So instead of my data returning like this:
It is like this:
