ExecuteSQL and Running Totals

Hi,

I need help with SQL and Running Total (instead of Total). 

 

TABLES

INV = Invoice table

- INV::Amount     ( Amount of Invoice)
- INV::DateMonth ( Month of InvoiceDate)
- INV::DateYear    ( Year of InvoiceDate)
 
DTE = Months table (fixed 12 records)
- DTE:Order=1...12)
- DTE::CurYear = 2016
 
 
Below SQL request works, see my result! But what I would require is a running total, adding each month sales total, see my "Required result"
 
ExecuteSQL ( "
SELECT      SUM(a.\"Amount\"/1000)
FROM          \"DTE\" b

LEFT JOIN   \"INV\" a
ON                 b.\"Order\"     = a.\"DateMonth\"
AND               b.\"CurYear\" = a.\"DateYear\"

GROUP BY    b.\"Order\"
"; " | " ; "0¶"  )

 
My current result as above SQL request
726.605050
818.7150
739.067850
0
703.7210
620.805350
599.986160
506.9230
597.8370
801.78250
1014.11510
567.64575
 


Below is what I require (a Running Total)
726.60505
1545.32005
2284.3879
2284.3879
2988.1089
3608.91425
4208.90041
4715.82341
5313.66041
6115.44291
7129.55801
7697.20376

 

I can do this without SQL, but I want to do using SQL and use it for my Charts.

Would appreciate any help. My SQL understanding is basic and I am using FileMaker 14 Adv

Hi Wim,

 

Thanks for your interest. Its not better. But I can put the SQL statement inside the chart and show multiple charts at the same time on a single Layout! Without any additional fields, variables, relations etc.

      Hi, I have been using Base Elements command BE_FileMakerSQL in FileMaker script to SQL select data, and return with '<c>' as field(column) delimiter, and '<r>' as the row delimiter. The below line worked before, I dumped a whole FM database with these delimiters showing in text files. But somehow, now if I run below line, it seems to have changed to ?only allow? 1 character for the delimiter, which of course doesn't make sense anyway with varied characters in the data:
      BE_FileMakerSQL ( $sql_select;  "<c>" ; "<r>" ; $fm_file ) The string this returns now looks like for example: 352265<gwgwh<474848<<wegwgw<65755<gwgw ....
      i.e. it has only taken the first character of the delimiter, I changed delimiter string to test with eg "A≠" instead of "<c>", same problem, it then only inserts "A" as delimiter. Just wonder if anyone can guess what might have happened here?
      Thanks kindly any suggestions!

      Hi, I am using the Base Elements plugin Execute SQL command to select SQL on a table in another FileMaker file. For a file with many fields and quite a lot data in some fields, this times as about 1 minute just for SQL SELECT command for 1,000 rows. I haven't used MBS (monkeybread software) plugin yet, but I wonder if anyone knows if it is significantly faster?
      I.e. BE_FileMakerSQL vs. MBS(FM.SQL.Execute..) - is one significantly faster?
      Here's the code to select 1,000 rows for reference, $timer_seconds comes as about 60 seconds here. If I export same table internally in FileMaker using the menu export to Excel, it takes 29 minutes for all 41,000 rows, so timing seems similar for the Base Elements SQL. (NB there is some flag going on here in the FileMaker database so internal export gets 41,000 rows but script SQL SELECT COUNT(*) gets 200,000 rows for same table, but I don't think that is relevant to my question).
       
      Set Variable [$time1; Value: Get(CurrentTimeUTCMilliseconds)] Set Variable [$part_ca; Value: BE_FileMakerSQL ( "SELECT * FROM Contact_ACTIVITY OFFSET 100000 ROWS FETCH FIRST 1000 ROWS ONLY" ; "&≠≠&" ; "EOR≠≠EOR" ; "DataContacts11" )] Set Variable [$timer_seconds; Value: (Get(CurrentTimeUTCMilliseconds) - $time1) / 1000] MBS command I think would be something like:
      MBS( "FM.SQL.Execute"; "DataContacts11"; "SELECT * FROM Contact_ACTIVITY OFFSET 100000 ROWS FETCH FIRST 1000 ROWS ONLY" ; ...delimiters here I'm assuming.. ) We only have base FileMaker here on machine I am using, which can run the Base Elements plugin, but to run MBS plugin, needs FileMaker Pro Advanced to install it I think, am getting several databases in roughly same FM format where script workspace disabled, hence need to use SQL select run from script in my own external FileMaker file. Might consider getting FMP Pro Advanced if MBS is faster.
      Tx any suggestions!

      Well, I'm new to SQL and have used it in it's basic select  mode. 
      Now I have been asked too create a dashboard using data from different tables to display. Which on the most part is OK and working great.
      I have had a request for a top customer list for the month and previous month (say best 5 ranked from 1-5.) and not together so 2 seperate views
      I am able to pull customers and SUM totals (seperately)for the month using SELECT DISTINCT I am able to get a list of the customers for the month. How would you then get a total or SUM of the invoice amounts for the given month with the customer name and their total ? also is there a similar function to FRACTION in filemaker?
      Listed is my SQL Statement that just returns a ?
      Which I understand to mean a syntax error however, being a SQL "Virgin" any halp would be appreciated. I know I am able to do this natively through filemaker however, as I said this is for a dashboard that uses data from a number of tables.
      Here is my calc that is obviously wrong.
       
      Currently working with Filemaker 15 Advanced.
       
      Let ( [ 
      ReturnSub = "\n" ; 
      SQLResult = ExecuteSQL ( 
      "SELECT DISTINCT (a.\"Customer Name\"), SUM(a.\"InvoiceTotal\")
      FROM \"Invoices \" a
      WHERE a.\"Invoice Sub Total\" > ? AND a.\"InvoiceMonth\" = ? AND a.\"InvoiceYear\" = ? AND a.\"Job Status\" <> ?" 
      GROUP ON a.\"Customer Name\" ASC; 
      "    " ; "|*|" ; 

       "0" ; Month(Get(CurrentDate))-1 ; Year(Get(CurrentDate)); "Giveaway"

       ) ] ; 
      Substitute ( SQLResult ; [ ¶ ; ReturnSub ] ; [ "|*|" ; ¶ ]  )

      )

      Hi all
      Apologies in advance if this is a vague question, or if it's been extensively documented, but I could do with some basic advice on moving filemaker tables to SQL. In terms of database development, I have only really known FileMaker.
      We have a 60 table, 25 user FileMaker database which takes care of most if not all of the company's operations. 
      There is now talk of allowing other platforms (such as PowerApps/PowerBI) access to the data. One such reason is other people are interested in making apps/applets that serve specific functions. This would be simple if the data were held on a SQL database.
      So if all the FileMaker tables were to be moved to SQL, what sort of a task is that in terms of keeping the existing FileMaker gui functioning?
      Or. is there a simpler way to grant other platforms access to filemaker tables?
      And of course, what are the downsides?
      Thanks

      Looking for someone to help setup a simple connection to a sql database on cpanel for our Ranch to connect to cattle listings on our website..  I'll be using fmp12 server or content for now just establishing a connection via fmp12 client on windows 7 pro machines.
      Specifically I am having trouble establishing a DSN connection from any of my machines and have opened ports / given access in cpanel to my static IP.
      I have also updated MS ODBC drivers on one of the machines to see if that made a difference.  It may be something quick for an expert with experience or it might end up being a gremlin.
      I have set up some test databases for troubleshooting purposes and willing to do alot of the legwork if i'm able but also willing to pay someone for their expertise as well.
      thx.
