Even with the...

AND CTE1.item = CTE2.item



...in the join?

It seemed to work okay. Did I screw something up?

Hrm, good point, my apologies. I read it too quickly. Habit on my part to make sure I don't screw up the partitioning versus the ordering, but it works both ways.

And another clarifying question:

Can a value change twice in a day such that there will be 2 values of an item for a given day? If so, how will you know which one to return?



And then again, I might be wrong ...

Thanks to everyone for your responses. Craig has the answer 'cos I'm used to using calendar tables. But I do like Autos cte as well - it's self-contained.

I appreciate your efforts and I will endeavour in future posts to make my questions un-ambiguous and as clear as possible.

You've made my day easier so I wish you all a good day too.

I see that several others jumped in and found you a working solution. Glad you were able to get it working and thanks to the others for jumping in. :-D
