Thanks to all for the positive comments and thanks Hugo for the logical explanation you gave. Helps a lot!

Tom please tell me what this means. "Na tog mi gun tuit mi ach ma thuiteas tog! Thig crìoch air an t-saoghal ach mairidh gaol is ceòl "

Google translate recognises it as Scottish Celtic, but is not yet able to translate that to either English or Dutch.
Bing Translator thinks it's Hungarian and translates it to English as "Na train what gun tuit what ach thuiteas train today! Thig crìoch air an t-saoghal ach mairidh gaol also ceòl".
Guess which of the two competing sites I believe ;-)

As Hugo said, it's Scotland's Celtic language, usually in English called Scottish Gaelic, or Gaelic for short (which of course creates confusion with Manx and Irish Gaelics) or in itself Gàidhlig na h-Alba. The first line means literally "Don't lift me unless I fall but if I fall do lift" but really "don't correct me unless I'm wrong but if I'm wrong do". The second line is a very old saying: "An end will come upon the world but love and music will survive".

I was up late last night working. I am looking at the question and thinking, "Gee, I didn't think you could group that way" and in my fatigue I chose the wrong answer instead of realizing that you can't group that way.

There is a "workaround":


SELECT DV.[Year],
SOH.SalesPersonID,
AverageOrderAmt = SUM(SOH.TotalDue)
FROM Sales.SalesOrderHeader SOH
CROSS
APPLY (SELECT DATEPART(yyyy,OrderDate)) DV ([Year])
GROUP BY
DV.[Year],
SOH.SalesPersonID
ORDER BY
DV.[Year] ;



Over to you, Hugo.

Paul

Based on Hugo's LOGICAL progression where the group by preceeds the select. The alias is not yet defined so grouping is not possible against a column that does not yet exist. The Order By occurs post Select where the alias has been defined so it is acceptable. An alternative solution is Group by datepart(yyyy,orderdate).
