Still to undergo testing. But I think, it is works as expected.Tue, 16 Oct 2012 12:26:47 GMTsqlSer12RE: Recursive function - sql2008http://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic1370081-391-1.aspxHi,Did you understand the calculation.Does anyone has any approch for this calculation?Tue, 16 Oct 2012 11:10:47 GMTsqlSer12RE: Recursive function - sql2008http://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic1370081-391-1.aspxYes, calcuation has changed from the first post. I did not understand lmm_value means. Yes the values are from MS-Project.The value of Task 1 is obtained from its children - Task 1.1, Task 1.2, Task 1.3, Task 1.4 and Task 1.5. All these task has the id_father = 1 and Task 1 has id_task = 1. Hence all these 5 are the children of Task 1.(38*60+39*9+0*10+0*20+10*6)/(60+9+10+20+6)2691/105 = 25To find the value of Task 1.1, we need to calculate from its children - task 1.1.1, task 1.1.2, task 1.1.3(100*2+44*38+20*20)/(2+38+20) = 38For ex. Task 1.5 has only one child task 1.5.1 and task 1.5.1 has one children task 1.5.1.1 and task 1.5.1.1 has one children task 1.5.1.1.1. First we need to calculate the value of 1.5.1.1.1 that is 10*6/10 = 10 and this values with be precent_task for its parent task 1.5.1.1 and the values of task 1.5.1.1 will 10*6/6=10 and goes on. Let me know, if this is clear.But I have developed the proceure, it is working almost fine. But, when I debug and check the values, it calulated fine for the first loop and from next loop onwards, the value of Calc and calc1 variables dont change, they remain 0. I dont understand wny this is happening. Here is the code.create Procedure GetCalculationForTestData1( @taskId int, @fatherId int, @taskLevel int) as begin Create table #TestFinal ( id_task int primary key, id_fathertask int, level_task int, duracion_task int, percent_task int null, name_task varchar(24), Calculation int, Calculation1 int ); Insert #TestFinal (id_task, id_fathertask, level_task, duracion_task, percent_task, name_task) select id_task, id_fathertask, level_task, duracion_task, percent_task, name_task from [Reportes].[dbo].[FunctionTST1] declare @Calc int = 0 declare @Calc1 int = 0 declare @IdFat int =0 While(@fatherId <> 0)Begin While(@taskLevel <> 0) Begin Create table #TestData ( id_task int primary key, id_fathertask int, level_task int, duracion_task int, percent_task int null, name_task varchar(24), Calculation int, Calculation1 int ); Insert #TestData (id_task, id_fathertask, level_task, duracion_task, percent_task, name_task) select id_task, id_fathertask, level_task, duracion_task, percent_task, name_task from [Reportes].[dbo].[FunctionTST1] where level_task = @taskLevel and id_fathertask = @fatherId ;with cteOrdered as ( select * from #TestData ) update cteOrdered set @Calc = Calculation = (percent_task * duracion_task) from cteOrdered WITH (TABLOCKX) OPTION (MAXDOP 1) ;with cteOrdered1 as ( select * from #TestData ) update cteOrdered1 set @Calc1 = Calculation1= ((select sum(Calculation) from cteOrdered1) / (select sum(duracion_task) from cteOrdered1)) set rowcount 1 select @IdFat = id_fathertask from #TestData set rowcount 1000 update #TestFinal set percent_task = @Calc1 where id_task = @IdFat drop table #TestData set @taskLevel = @taskLevel -1 set @Calc = 0 set @Calc1 = 0 End set @fatherId = @fatherId - 1 set @Calc = 0 set @Calc1 = 0End select * from #TestFinal EndFri, 12 Oct 2012 15:29:41 GMTsqlSer12RE: Recursive function - sql2008http://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic1370081-391-1.aspxYour calculation seems have changed since your first post? [quote]21 20 5 6 10 Task 1.5.1.1.1I am trying to create a recurive function.Calculation starts from the bottom(5*6)+10 = 40it goes for the column above this percent_task column[/quote]But now in your expected output you have lmm_value as 10??? There is something fundamentally wrong with this whole process. Your id_task has a father of itself which is a bit challenging. The more I am looking at this the more this seems like something exported from MS-Project where Task 1 is the main task and all the rest of them are sub tasks? Unfortunately it is totally unclear to me what you want for output. Obviously I can see the values but I don't understand how you calculate them, and they have changed somewhere along the way.Can you explain clearly how you get your calculation? Also I am not quite sure how you would get the 25.37 as the output of your proc?? Maybe you just need to approach this differently. I would try something but I have clue what the final value means or how to get it.Fri, 12 Oct 2012 12:32:07 GMTSean LangeRE: Recursive function - sql2008http://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic1370081-391-1.aspxThanks a lot for coming forward to help.

This the sample table data. Task is calulate the value of root of the tree that is Task1(First row) by using its children. For Ex. thirs row id_task=3 it is unique for every row and identify the task number. level_task = 3, that is it belongs to the third level in the tree. id_fathertask = 2 means, its parent the one which has id_task as 2, that is Task 1.1(second row). The result of the calculation should go to the percent_task of their parent. Hence we start the calculation from the lowest level in the tree and result goes to its parent and finally we find the value of the root.id_task id_fathertask level_task duracion_task percent_task name_task1 1 1 76 NULL Task 12 1 2 60 NULL Task 1.13 2 3 2 100 Task 1.1.14 2 3 38 NULL Task 1.1.25 4 4 10 100 Task 1.1.2.16 4 4 22 20 Task 1.1.2.27 4 4 5 35 Task 1.1.2.38 4 4 1 40 Task 1.1.2.49 2 3 20 NULL Task 1.1.310 9 4 20 20 Task 1.1.3.111 1 2 9 NULL Task 1.212 11 3 2 0 Task 1.2.113 11 3 7 NULL Task 1.2.214 13 4 2 50 Task 1.2.2.115 13 4 5 50 Task 1.2.2.216 1 2 10 0 Task 1.317 1 2 20 0 Task 1.418 1 2 6 NULL Task 1.519 18 3 6 NULL Task 1.5.120 19 4 6 NULL Task 1.5.1.121 20 5 6 10 Task 1.5.1.1.1Fri, 12 Oct 2012 10:00:27 GMTsqlSer12RE: Recursive function - sql2008http://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic1370081-391-1.aspx[quote][b]sqlSer12 (10/12/2012)[/b][hr]Table looks like below.

I am sorry for changing the code.I cannot combine two update statements, since I need the first update value to calculate the next one.Here is the code and the logic which I am using.CREATE TABLE [dbo].[FunctionTST1]( [id_task] [int] NULL, [id_fathertask] [int] NULL, [level_task] [int] NULL, [duracion_task] [float] NULL, [percent_task] [float] NULL, [name_task] [nvarchar](50) NULL);insert into [dbo].[FunctionTST1]values(1,1,1,76,NULL,'Task 1'),(2,1,2,60,NULL,'Task,1.1'),(3,2,3,2,100,'Task,1.1.1'),(4,2,3,38,NULL,'Task,1.1.2'),(5,4,4,10,100,'Task,1.1.2.1'),(6,4,4,22,20,'Task,1.1.2.2'),(7,4,4,5,35,'Task,1.1.2.3'),(8,4,4,1,40,'Task,1.1.2.4'),(9,2,3,20,NULL,'Task,1.1.3'),(10,9,4,20,20,'Task,1.1.3.1'),(11,1,2,9,NULL,'Task,1.2'),(12,11,3,2,0,'Task,1.2.1'),(13,11,3,7,NULL,'Task,1.2.2'),(14,13,4,2,50,'Task,1.2.2.1'),(15,13,4,5,50,'Task,1.2.2.2'),(16,1,2,10,0,'Task,1.3'),(17,1,2,20,0,'Task,1.4'),(18,1,2,6,NULL,'Task,1.5'),(19,18,3,6,NULL,'Task,1.5.1'),(20,19,4,6,NULL,'Task,1.5.1.1'),(21,20,5,6,10,'Task,1.5.1.1.1');The actual result is 25.37 and if convert into whole numbers during all the calclulations then it is 25.The aim of this is to find the percent_task for task1. Table is kind of a tree with Task1 as the root. Task one has 5 children Task 1.1, Task 1.2, Task 1.3, Task 1.4 and Task 1.5. Task 1.5 has one child Task 1.5.1 and it has one child Task 1.5.1.1. And Task 1.5.1.1 has one child Task 1.5.1.1.1 and so on.Task 1.1.2 has four children Task 1.1.2.1, Task 1.1.2.2, Task 1.1.2.3 and Task 1.1.2.4. and so on in the table.We need to start calculation from the leaf nodes. and result of the calulation replaces the percent_task of its parent.For example to calculate percent_task for Task 1.1.2, we need to use the value of his children.10*100 = 100022*20 = 4405*35 = 1751*40 = 40-- ---------38 16551655/38 = 43.55(44) = percent_task of task 1.1.2Hence the values of Task 1.1 = 38, Task 1.2 = 38.8, Task 1.3 = 0, Task 1.4 = 0 and Task 1.5 = 10 and final value is 25Hope the above one is understandable. I do not have much exp in this. Hence I developed the code from whatever you pasted and googling.Thu, 11 Oct 2012 22:23:09 GMTsqlSer12RE: Recursive function - sql2008http://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic1370081-391-1.aspxI am guessing that you didn't read through the article I suggested and understand this code. You can't reference the cte by multiple statements after it is declared. You need to combine your two update statements. I noticed you also removed the order by in the cte. This order is MANDATORY or you don't know what order the results will be returned. And why oh why did you put this into nested while loops??? You totally destroyed any chance at making this remotely quick. You need to start over here.Can you post ddl (create table scripts), sample data (insert statements) and desired output based on your sample data? There is no need to put this in nested loops.Thu, 11 Oct 2012 21:21:34 GMTSean LangeRE: Recursive function - sql2008http://www.sqlservercentral.com/Forums/Topic1370081-391-1.aspxThanks a lot.

How do you know what the "root" of the task is?This is a running total type of problem but at the base is this denormalized table. You don't need a recursive function for this. Take a look at this article from Jeff Moden on running totals.
