Hi I have a table like this:

CLIENT Value

a 12
b 11
c 8
d 5
e 4

I want to accumulate this values in an aditional column

CLIENT Value ACUM
a 12 12
b 11 12 + 11 = 23
c 8 23 + 8 = 31
d 5 31 + 5 = 36
e 4 36 + 4 = 40

CREATE TABLE dbo.RunningTotal

(

Entry int

,RunningTotal int

)

INSERT INTO dbo.RunningTotal (Entry,RunningTotal)VALUES(100,NULL)

INSERT INTO dbo.RunningTotal (Entry,RunningTotal)VALUES(200,NULL)

INSERT INTO dbo.RunningTotal (Entry,RunningTotal)VALUES(300,NULL)

INSERT INTO dbo.RunningTotal (Entry,RunningTotal)VALUES(400,NULL)

INSERT INTO dbo.RunningTotal (Entry,RunningTotal)VALUES(500,NULL)

UPDATE dbo.RunningTotal

SET RunningTotal = RT2.RunningTotal

FROM dbo.RunningTotal RT1

INNER JOIN

(

SELECT Entry

,(SELECT SUM(Entry) FROM dbo.RunningTotal WHERE Entry <= rt.Entry) As RunningTotal

FROM dbo.RunningTotal rt

) RT2

ON RT1.Entry = RT2.Entry

SELECT * FROM dbo.RunningTotal

Resultset:

Entry RunningTotal

100 100

200 300

300 600

400 1000

500 1500

There are endless variations depending on table structure, data and what you want to do with the data.

Here is one other example:

CREATE TABLE dbo.Balance

(

ID int

,Entry int

,RunningTotal int

)

TRUNCATE TABLE dbo.Balance

INSERT INTO dbo.Balance (ID,Entry,RunningTotal)VALUES(1,500,NULL)

INSERT INTO dbo.Balance (ID,Entry,RunningTotal)VALUES(2,-400,NULL)

INSERT INTO dbo.Balance (ID,Entry,RunningTotal)VALUES(3,-300,NULL)

INSERT INTO dbo.Balance (ID,Entry,RunningTotal)VALUES(4,-200,NULL)

INSERT INTO dbo.Balance (ID,Entry,RunningTotal)VALUES(5,-100,NULL)

UPDATE dbo.Balance

SET RunningTotal = RT2.RunningTotal

FROM dbo.Balance RT1

INNER JOIN

(

SELECT Entry

,(SELECT -SUM(-Entry) FROM dbo.Balance WHERE ID <= rt.ID ) As RunningTotal

FROM dbo.Balance rt

) RT2

ON RT1.Entry = RT2.Entry

SELECT * FROM dbo.Balance

ID Entry RunningTotal

1 500 500

2 -400 100

3 -300 -200

4 -200 -400

5 -100 -500

I try this , but the values only are growing

the table with this input values must be

ID Entry RunningTotal

1 500 500

2 -400 -400 - 500 = -900

3 -300 -300-(-900) = 600

4 -200 -200-(-300) = 100

5 -100 -100 - 100 = -200

How coud I do this

Yojan

That is a good method and works perfectly for relatively small number of records

Unfortunatly for a large number it is too slow ,,, :(:(:( do you have another faster method

I'm a little desparate

Thanks

Yes. do it in your front end application or reporting tool.
