having troubles with sorting data based on date parts

having troubles with sorting data based on date parts

having troubles with sorting data based on date parts

(OP)
I want to group data based on the Month and Year for counts.

I have a field that is Date/Time named [callstartdate] and I keep getting an error with the following code

CODE

select
  Year(Callstartdate) Year,
  month(callstartdate) Month,
  appname,
  count(sessionid) Total_Calls
from
  vxmlsession
where
  month(callstartdate) = 6
  and year(callstartdate) = 2008
group by
  year(callstartdate),
  Month(callstartdate),
  appname
order by
  appname ASC

All I get is 'A Syntax Error has occured'  Where is my hangup?

RE: having troubles with sorting data based on date parts

(OP)
I found another thread that helped... because the first two items were 'odd' (lack of a better reason) I grouped by Item 1 and then 2... the code came out like this and works!

CODE

select
  Year(Callstartdate) Year,
  month(callstartdate) Month,
  appname,
  count(sessionid) Total_Calls
from
  vxmlsession
where
  month(callstartdate) > 5
  and year(callstartdate) = 2008
group by
  1,
  2,
  appname
order by
  appname ASC
