    Hi i have 2 tables A and B.......With same fields!!!<br />For Example: A.Number1,A.Number.2 and B.Number1,B.Number2<br /><br />Now<br />i want to make the follow type:<br /><br />Result=sum(A*B)/min(A*A,B*B)<br /><br />with queries and at last compare with if and else wich is the min <br />and make the type work.....<br />My problems is how i will keep the results in variables<img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-7.gif' alt=':s' />um(A*B),(A*A),(B*B)<br />and second how i will syntax if and else and set the final result...<br />The calculations will be each field with each field of every table....<br /><br />

    You can't use sum(A*B) because A and B are tables...
    YOu can use the columns in place of tables... sum(A.Number1*B.Number1)...

    Oh god i know its tables it was an example to make you understand!!! I know how i will make the calculations between the 2 tables... My Problem is how i will keep the 3 results into variables and how i will make if else work

    Please explain more detailed what you are trying to achieve. It is hard to guess that from your description.

    Sorry, but how do you think we can help you, when you don't provide clear and precise specs?

    My error is the above:

    Server: Msg 512, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
    Subquery returned more than 1 value. This is not permitted when the subquery follows =, !=, <, <= , >, >= or when the subquery is used as an expression.

    (3 row(s) affected)
    but i save the results ok i just have this error

    The error message is pretty clear. Obviously you're using a subquery in a comparison. You need to constraint the subquery in that way, that it only return 1 single scalar value. Probably the easiest way wold be to use a TOP 1, if that is applicable.

    No i have to return 3 valuess but i will try with top and i will see
  12. madhuottapalam New Member

    use IN instead of =

    select *from sometable where somecolumn IN(select somecolumn from sometable)

  13. Leite33 New Member

    I didnt get that what you mean!!! I use insert into but i have to put 3 results
  14. cmdr_skywalker New Member

    It will be better for everyone if we can see the code, this helps us understand if we are talking the same context of the "code". We can keep guessing on what you might need or not. But then again, they are all guess. Help us help you.

    May the Almighty God bless us all!

    Ok it worked with top!!! Sorry i wasnt very specifiec!!!!!One more question!!!! When i use if else and i have may rows after if and many rows after else what i use???? () or {} or something else?????
  16. Leite33 New Member

    Again me one problem with if and else and one if i use top 1 it work but i get wrong results if i use top 3 its correct but then i get the same message
  17. Kewin New Member

    I guess what you're looking for is:

    IF sometest > 1
    more code
    even more code

    You use BEGIN - END blocks instead of ( ) or { }

    If you want us to be able to provide something useful as help, you need to give as an example...
    A few rows of data, and the desired output from that data.
    If there are more than one table involved, also a description of the relevant columns in those tables, what the keys are, and how the tables relate to eachother, along with any other 'business rules' that may come into play.

    Post this as script statements that may be pasted into a query window, then we'll be able to run it for you.

    I think some basic training in T-SQL would benefit OP more than any suggestions we can make. Don't waste your own time groping in the dark.[<img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-1.gif' alt=':)' />]
