I am trying to get the numbers for the next two week from now . Need help with querying this ..

The table looks like this
CREATE TABLE dbo.Planner(
[Name] [nvarchar](255) NULL,
[ProjectName] [nvarchar](255) NULL,
,[7-Jul-14][nvarchar](255) NULL
,[14-Jul-14][nvarchar](255) NULL
,[21-Jul-14][nvarchar](255) NULL
,[28-Jul-14][nvarchar](255) NULL
,[4-Aug-14][nvarchar](255) NULL
,[11-Aug-14][nvarchar](255) NULL
,[18-Aug-14][nvarchar](255) NULL
,[25-Aug-14][nvarchar](255) NULL
,[1-Sep-14][nvarchar](255) NULL
,[8-Sep-14][nvarchar](255) NULL
,[15-Sep-14][nvarchar](255) NULL)

insert into Planner (Name,ProjectName,,[7-Jul-14]
,[14-Jul-14]
,[21-Jul-14]
,[28-Jul-14]
,[4-Aug-14]
,[11-Aug-14]
,[18-Aug-14]
,[25-Aug-14]
,[1-Sep-14]
,[8-Sep-14]
,[15-Sep-14]) Values ('Mike','Audit','10','10','10','0','5','5','5','4','15','14','10')


So if today is 23rd July , next two weeks sum will be 28th July and 4th Aug ie 0+5 = 5 . Need help with querying this ..

You have 2 options:
- Normalize your table
- Use dynamic SQL

You decide.

I agree with Luis...normalise your data...

what are you expecting the results to be from your post?
what other tables do you have that store this data.....is this just for reporting ?

I vote for normalizing too... then this query becomes trivial. Been down the unnormalized path once before and it was not a place I want to go again. The time you take to normalize with make the rest of this super easy and fast.

@sharonsql2013,

Many folks have correctly identified that the table should be "normalized". While it may not be possible for you to change the table, do you know how you would normalize the table if you had to? I ask because THAT's the key to this problem.

--Jeff Moden

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
Although they tell us that they want it real bad, our primary goal is to ensure that we dont actually give it to them that way.
Although change is inevitable, change for the better is not.
Just because you can do something in PowerShell, doesnt mean you should. Wink

What do (Name, Project, Date) represent? Some event? If you explain that part, we can help you sort out the design of your table. (As Jeff mentioned, are you allowed to restructure this table? I hope so, because this is going to be awful to query... and what happens when you add another date?)

Apologies for all the questions, but once you answer, I think figuring out a more flexible structure for your data should be pretty easy.

True, I cannot change the table .
Name is the name of the person , Project is the projectname and all the weeks represent the hours worked on the project.

You haven't answered my previous question. I understand that you can't change the table. Do you understand the normalization process that you'd use if you could? THAT's the key to solving this problem even if it doesn't result in you changing the table.
