SQL Help

SQL Help

Hi All,
I need help with a bit of SQL...

I have a table which shows the below:

season | ValueThisYear
AW17-1 | 100
AW17-2 | 205
AW18-1 | 199
AW18-2 | 300

I need to create a view based on similar columns which will give me the data as below. ie. ValueThisYear and ValueLastYear. where season is AW18-1 the value this year is 199 and the value Last year is taken from AW17-1 being 100.

I need the view result showing as below:

season | ValueThisYear | ValueLastYear
AW17-1 | 100 |
AW17-2 | 205 |
AW18-1 | 199 | 100
AW18-2 | 300 | 205

Thanks in advance

RE: SQL Help

And how do you know which record is for this year and which is for the last one?
Don't tell me "by the name" please.

RE: SQL Help

“ValueThisYear” is the result of a report.

You need to get to the data from which that report was generated. Must have DATES!

RE: SQL Help

I assume the 17 and 18 are years but it would have been appropriate for neemi to clarify in the original post. Also use of TGML is a must for members who have started over 200 threads in 18 years.

I expect something like this would work. At least it gives the same results as requested


cteA AS
 SELECT 'AW17-1' Season, 100 ValueThisYear UNION 
 SELECT 'AW17-2', 205 UNION
 SELECT 'AW18-1', 199 UNION
 SELECT 'AW18-2', 300
 SELECT A.SEASON, A.ValueTHisYear, B.ValueTHisYear ValueLastYear
  LEFT(A.Season,2) = Left(B.Season,2) AND 
  RIGHT(A.Season,1) = Right(B.Season,1) AND 
  Convert(int,SUBSTRING(A.Season,3,2)) = Convert(int,SUBSTRING(B.Season,3,2))+1
