I am attempting to pull only open tickets from my table. Thing is we have duplicate records with different status code in our data

TICKET STATUS
9543 1
9543 5
9543 5
9544 1
9546 1
9547 1
9547 5

I only want the records with a 1 and not a 5 status, so in the above sample, I should only return 9544 and 9546.

Any suggestions are much appreciated.

i think a simple test with an EXISTS and correlated subquery will get you want you want:

With YOURTABLE (TICKET,STATUS)
AS
(
SELECT 9543,1 UNION ALL
SELECT 9543,5 UNION ALL
SELECT 9543,5 UNION ALL
SELECT 9544,1 UNION ALL
SELECT 9546,1 UNION ALL
SELECT 9547,1 UNION ALL
SELECT 9547,5
)
--the above is just setup data to represent your data , wherever it is.
--data like that makes it easy for anyone to offer helpful posts.
--proposed example is just what is below.
SELECT
*
FROM YOURTABLE OPENTIX
WHERE NOT EXISTS(SELECT
1
FROM YOURTABLE CLOSEDTIX
WHERE CLOSEDTIX.TICKET = OPENTIX.TICKET
AND CLOSEDTIX.STATUS = 5)
AND OPENTIX.STATUS = 1

I think that a GROUP BY is much simpler and probably faster, too.


With YOURTABLE (TICKET,STATUS)
AS
(
SELECT 9543,1 UNION ALL
SELECT 9543,5 UNION ALL
SELECT 9543,5 UNION ALL
SELECT 9544,1 UNION ALL
SELECT 9546,1 UNION ALL
SELECT 9547,1 UNION ALL
SELECT 9547,5
)

SELECT TICKET, MAX(STATUS) AS STATUS
FROM YOURTABLE
GROUP BY TICKET
HAVING MAX(STATUS) = 1
GO

This is another way of doing it...and I guess the simplest way....:-)


With YOURTABLE (TICKET,STATUS)
AS
(
SELECT 9543,1 UNION ALL
SELECT 9543,5 UNION ALL
SELECT 9543,5 UNION ALL
SELECT 9544,1 UNION ALL
SELECT 9546,1 UNION ALL
SELECT 9547,1 UNION ALL
SELECT 9547,5
)
Select * From YOURTABLE
Where TICKET NOT IN (Select TICKET From YOURTABLE Where STATUS = 5)
GO

Oh, be careful. For this particular data, that will absolutely work. If they introduce status less than 5 that aren't cause for rejection, it won't.

It's a good idea for the data given. I have a hard time believing that they have no statuses between 1 and 5, though. If they do, the code you posted would produce duplicate ticket numbers. Of course, that may be just what the doctor ordered if there are status other than 1 and 5.

I only want the records with a 1 and not a 5 status, so in the above sample, I should only return 9544 and 9546.

Any suggestions are much appreciated.


The question that begs to be answered here is.... in real life, will there be any tickets with a status other than 1 and 5 and what do you want to do if that's true?
