Deviding a Grupping

Deviding a Grupping

Deviding a Grupping


I am using this piece of code to deliver a status regarding a system


select decode(area,
              'T','Cannot FIX') "DISTRIBUTION",
from (select ERROR_LOG_ID,
       decode(decode(CR_TO_CORRECT,'B','Batch',null)||decode(VAL,'Batch','Batch',null),'Batch','B',cr_to_correct) "AREA"       
    from (
    select el.error_log_id, ol.order_line_id, oli.Initiator_desc, em.cr_to_correct,
       substr(decode(oli.Initiator_desc,null,'Batch','Script - Change Username', 'Batch',oli.Initiator_desc),1,5) "VAL"
     from delta_owner.ext_error_log el, bc.order_line ol, BC.ORDER_LINE_INITIATOR oli,
       batch_owner.errorlog_message em
    where nvl(el.comments,0) not like 'Resolved%'
       and el.orderline_id=ol.order_line_id(+)
       and ol.initiator = OLI.INITIATOR(+)
       and el.workaround_id=em.errorlog_message_id(+)   
group by rollup(decode(area,'B','BATCH','G','RESEND','Y','CR_FIX','N','IT_FIX','Q','ANALYSIS_IN_PROGRESS',null,'UNKNOWN','T','Cannot FIX'))

And i works fine, but I would like to modify it.
the 'G','RESEND'
Is should accutaly be devided into 2 portions.
If there in the delta_owner.ext_error_log under the same ERROR_LOG_ID is 2 of the same workaround_id then it should be put into

The reason is that resend is a funtionalaty, and if it is resend and then goes back into the system, then a resend is probally not the solution.

Hope some one can help.

This is on Oracle 10


RE: Deviding a Grupping

perhaps you could post your question in one of the oracle forums?

there is no such thing as DECODE in ANSI SQL

Buy my new book Simply SQL from Amazon

RE: Deviding a Grupping

You might also want to familiarize yourself with CASE - it allows you much more flexibility than DECODE.
