problem with aggregating data

problem with aggregating data

Hi, I seem to have problems aggregating data and then storing the data into a temp table for later viewing:


select ticketnum, sum(priceextension) total
into "#table1"
where ticketnum=457117
group by ticketnum

trying to view the temp table:

select * from "#table1"


ODBC Error: SQLSTATE = , Native error code = 0
A required ODBC entry point was not found.  Make sure ODBC is installed correctly.

If i just do a simple data dump into the temp table without using an aggregate function the contents of the temp table displays correctly:


select ticketnum, priceextension
into "#table1"
where ticketnum=457117

select * from "#table1"


457117    22200.00
457117    30.00

any ideas why this is happening? I am running these queries through the Pervasive control center.

Thank you for any insight


RE: problem with aggregating data

What version of PSQL are you using?  I tried with a simple query using DEMODATA and PSQL 10.21 and it worked correctly.
My queries were:
select name, sum(max_size) total into #table1 from class where id > 100 group by name;

select * from "#table1"
