Hi there!
My current issue is something that I wrote that will sum various counts for 4 different categories/levels of totals. Each "level' requires an additional "group by" object.
When I use the PRINT command, it produces just fine. If I take that output and put it in another query and execute, it works fine; If I remove the UNION, it
works fine but groups everything where I need this to be put as one output, eventually to be stored into a table which is phase2 once I can get this to work.
HERE IS MY CODE:
declare and set initial value of loop variable DECLARE @loopvar1 int SET @loopvar1 = 1
stmt1 is the initial select statement DECLARE @sqlSTMT1 NVARCHAR(4000) SET @sqlSTMT1 = N'SELECT run_date ,end_date_requested '
alliance does NOT change so not bothering to add to loop and take up unnecessary runtime DECLARE @fld_alliance NVARCHAR(4000) having blank will advance to next line to keep sql neat SET @fld_alliance =N' ,cast(Alliance as varchar(20)) as Alliance'
DECLARE @fld_allianceNM NVARCHAR(4000) SET @fld_allianceNM =N' ,AllianceNM'
the rest that would go in this order are within the loop. DECLARE @sqlSTMT2 NVARCHAR(4000) SET @sqlSTMT2 = N' memcntshere ,sum(d1.EEcnt) as EEcnt ,sum(d1.SPcnt) as SPcnt ,sum(d1.CHcnt) as CHcnt ,sum(d1.DEPScnt) as DEPScnt ,sum(d1.TOTcnt) as TOTcnt webreghere ,sum(d1.EEcnt_webReg) as EEcnt_WebReg ,sum(d1.SPcnt_webReg) as SPcnt_WebReg ,sum(d1.CHcnt_webReg) as CHcnt_WebReg ,sum(d1.DEPScnt_webReg) as DEPScnt_WebReg ,sum(d1.TOTcnt_webReg) as TOTcnt_WebReg hrahere ,sum(d1.EEcnt_HRA) as EEcnt_HRA ,sum(d1.SPcnt_HRA) as SPcnt_HRA ,sum(d1.CHcnt_HRA) as CHcnt_HRA ,sum(d1.DEPScnt_HRA) as DEPScnt_HRA ,sum(d1.TOTcnt_HRA) as TOTcnt_HRA
EE & SPs Age ranges ,sum(d1.EESP_AGElt20) as EESP_AGElt20 ,sum(d1.EESP_AGE20to25) as EESP_AGE20to25 ,sum(d1.EESP_AGE26to35) as EESP_AGE26to35 ,sum(d1.EESP_AGE36to45) as EESP_AGE36to45 ,sum(d1.EESP_AGE46to55) as EESP_AGE46to55 ,sum(d1.EESP_AGE56to65) as EESP_AGE56to65 ,sum(d1.EESP_AGE66to75) as EESP_AGE66to75 ,sum(d1.EESP_AGEgt75) as EESP_AGEgt75 how many children as follows ,sum(d1.CH_AGElt0) as CH_AGElt0 ,sum(d1.CH_AGE0t24) as CH_AGE0t24 ,sum(d1.CH_AGEgt25) as CH_AGEgt25
from ##meMemCnts1 d1 dont forget to modify first program to put into actual table group by run_date ,end_date_requested alliance does not change therefore it is not needed any different as built in the loop below ,Alliance ,AllianceNM '
WHILE @loopvar1 < 5 BEGIN DECLARE @sqlSELECT NVARCHAR(2000) SET @sqlSELECT = case when @loopvar1 = 1 then @sqlStmt1 else N' UNION '+ @sqlSTMT1 end
DECLARE @FLD_comment NVARCHAR(4000) SET @FLD_comment = case when @loopvar1 = 1 then N' ,''1ALLIANCE TOTALS'' as Comment1 ' keeping this like this helps to make the sql neater to look at for fixing/debug when @loopvar1 = 2 I guess it uses actual spacing in it's interpretation then N' ,''2MKTSEG TOTALS'' as Comment1 ' when @loopvar1 = 3 then N' ,''3GROUP TOTALS'' as Comment1 ' when @loopvar1 = 4 then N' ,''4BRANCH TOTALS'' as Comment1 ' else ' ' null end alliance does not change so didn't bother putting in loop starts mktseg here DECLARE @FLD_mktseg NVARCHAR(4000) SET @FLD_mktseg = case when @loopvar1 = 1 then N' ,cast('' '' as varchar(20)) as MktSeg' when @loopvar1 between 2 and 4 then N' ,cast(d1.MktSeg as varchar(20)) as MktSeg' else ' ' end

DECLARE @FLD_branchNM NVARCHAR(4000) SET @FLD_branchNM = case when @loopvar1 <= 3 then N' ,'' '' as BranchNM' when @loopvar1 = 4 then N' ,d1.branchNM ' else ' ' end
GROUP BYs START HERE Alliance is always avail so here is MARKET DECLARE @GROUPBY_mkt NVARCHAR(4000) SET @GROUPBY_MKT = case when @loopvar1 >= 2 between 2 and 3 then N' ,d1.MktSeg' else ' ' end DECLARE @GROUPBY_mktNM NVARCHAR(4000) SET @GROUPBY_MKTNM = case when @loopvar1 >= 2 between 2 and 3 then N' ,d1.MktSegNM' else ' ' end  GROUP DECLARE @GROUPBY_group NVARCHAR(4000) SET @GROUPBY_GROUP = case when @loopvar1 >= 3 between 3 and 4 then N' ,d1.GrpID' else ' ' end DECLARE @GROUPBY_groupNM NVARCHAR(4000) SET @GROUPBY_GROUPNM = case when @loopvar1 >= 3 between 3 and 4 then N' ,d1.GrpNM' else ' ' end
 BRANCH DECLARE @GROUPBY_branch NVARCHAR(4000) SET @GROUPBY_branch = case when @loopvar1 = 4 then N' ,d1.branch' else ' ' end
DECLARE @GROUPBY_branchNM NVARCHAR(4000)  union aLL trying it here also resulted in the same error why?. SET @GROUPBY_branchNM = case when @loopvar1 = 4 then N' ,d1.branchNM ORDER BY run_date ,end_date_requested ,comment1 ,alliance ,mktseg ,grpID ,branch ' else ' ' end
DECLARE @UNIONstmt NVARCHAR(4000) SET @UNIONstmt = case when @loopvar1 < 4 then N' UNION ALL' ELSE ' ' END
now put it all together into another var declare @sqlRunIt nvarchar(4000) set @sqlRunIt = @sqlSELECT this has union preceding select > notes work either on "exec" @sqlstmt1 initial attempt which I swear worked last thurs when citrix was having issues at work.... + @fld_comment + @fld_alliance + @fld_alliancenm + @fld_mktseg + @fld_mktsegNM + @fld_group + @fld_groupnm + @fld_branch + @fld_branchnm + @sqlstmt2 + @groupby_mkt + @GROUPBY_MKTNM + @groupby_group + @groupby_groupNM + @groupby_branch + @groupby_branchNM + @UNIONstmt if I comment, it works fine but as 4 queries. Keeping seems to process all but only displays branch with those errs
print @sqlRunIt exec sp_executesql @sqlRunIt
set @loopvar1 = @loopvar1 + 1 end program and loop end here.
final step, insert the output above into a table
