    hello,below is my query, the query result is2 columns from2 different databases
    the columns "OriginalPremium" & "Share"Share is always staticin EACH query run but in some queries are 50 some are 60..etc
    the question: how to get the SUM of the "OriginalPremium"in my Query result ??
     

    SELECT OriginalPremium, Users.Share
    FROM [URSYSTEM].[PolicyTable] a inner join [LoginDB].[ahsal-UR].Users on Producer = LoginDB.[ahsal-UR].Users.Username
     

    Now my output is:
    -----------------------------------
    |OriginalPremium | Share |
    -----------------------------------
    |            10            |    50   |
    -----------------------------------
    |            15            |    50   |
    -----------------------------------
    |            15            |    50   |
    -----------------------------------

     what i want is:
    -----------------------------------
    |OriginalPremium | Share |
    -----------------------------------
    |           30             |    50   |
    -----------------------------------
     

     
    by the way i used Sum(OriginalPremium) as Totalit shows me this error:Msg 8120, Level 16, State 1, Line 3
    Column 'LoginDB.ahsal-UR.Users.Share'is invalid in the select list because it is not contained in either an aggregate function or the GROUP BY clause.

    Welcome to SSC.

    For any of the users here to answer your question(s) we'll need some things from you. In this case, we need DDL and Samples Data. There's a link in my signature on how you can do that.

    On the matter of the error, the error message is giving you the answer. When using an aggregate, you will often need to include a GROUP BY clause. Have a Google, and see what you can learn there. If you have any question on it, then please do ask.

    Once you've posted back with some DDL and sample data, someone will be able to help you further.

    You were lucky to find someone that overlooked the fact that you didn't even post the query that gave you the error. They must be hungry for points. 😉 

    Glad you got someone to answer and that it worked out for you.
