problem inner joininig a derived column

In your ON criteria, you've got...`ON myCTE.c=#a.CAST(YEAR(#a.recorddate) `change it to (take out the extra '#a.' alias, and leave the rest the same)...`ON myCTE.c=CAST(YEAR(#a.recorddate) `And it worked for me. The only differece being there are NULL's where you have zero's in your mock results. It looks like there are some better suggestions any way, but I was just curious if this was the only 'failure' you were experiencing.

One thing i don't understand is: That is 'yyyy-mm-00' for a month within a year and 'yyyy-00-00' for the whole year. Do you store that as date? `SELECT CAST('2012-01-00' AS DATE)`This don't seem to work.@Greg Snidow - Ah yes! Your small change made it work.
