First and foremost I am not a db programmer, Dispatcher by trade. So if I do not belong here do not hesitate to say so. With the form someone on another form I have created the following query to return the minimum temperatue for each day and the time it first occurred. My problem is that I want this as a View. I plan to use another program as a front end to display my data.

  • use tempdb;
    GO

    CREATE TABLE #Readings (
    EventDate DATE,
    EventTime TIME,
    Temp TINYINT
    );
    GO
    -- some sample data
    INSERT INTO #Readings
    SELECT EventDate
    ,EventTime
    ,[Temp_Out]
    FROM [YewSt_Weather_WD].[dbo].[WX_Data_WD]

    -- get the min(EventTime) of the Min(Temp)
    SELECT mt.EventDate
    , mt.MinimumTemp
    , MIN(r.EventTime) AS EarliestTime
    FROM
    (SELECT EventDate
    , MIN(Temp) AS MinimumTemp
    FROM #Readings
    GROUP BY EventDate) mt
    INNER JOIN #Readings r
    ON (mt.EventDate = r.EventDate
    AND mt.MinimumTemp = r.Temp)
    GROUP BY
    mt.EventDate
    , mt.MinimumTemp;

    A simpler way to get the information you're looking at would be this:

    WITH CTE AS 
    (
    SELECT EventDate,EventTime,Temp, rn=ROW_NUMBER() OVER (PARTITION BY EventDate ORDER BY Temp ASC, EventTime ASC)
    FROM mytable --Change to your table name, of course
    )

    SELECT EventDate, EventTime, Temp
    FROM CTE
    WHERE rn=1;


    Turning that into a view is as simple as adding the following line at the beginning:

    CREATE VIEW myview AS --Again, change to the desired name for the view as necessary

    Yeah, I figured that out after taking a break for a while... (That's my crummy code he was posting about.)
    Took me a minute to figure out I could use ROW_NUMBER() OVER () PARTITION... to do it. Turns out leaving myself hints worked pretty well.
