I have a table (product) that has week01 through week30. I have the user enter a start date and another table (promotions) tells the system how many weeks to add to find out the ending date for a promotion.

What I am trying to do is display a total the number of units for each product to order based on the starting week/date that the user entered through the ending week/date. I am trying to use code like below to accomplish that.

SELECT Product,

Sum(Case when p2.startweek <= 1 and 1<= p2.endweek then week01

when p2.startweek <= 2 and 2<= p2.endweek then week01

when p2.startweek <= 3 and 3<= p2.endweek then week01

when p2.startweek <= 4 and 4<= p2.endweek then week01

when p2.startweek <= 5 and 5<= p2.endweek then week01

when p2.startweek <= 6 and 6<= p2.endweek then week01

when p2.startweek <= 7 and 7<= p2.endweek then week01

when p2.startweek <= 8 and 8<= p2.endweek then week01

when p2.startweek <= 9 and 9<= p2.endweek then week01

when p2.startweek <= 10 and 10<= p2.endweek then week01

when p2.startweek <= 11 and 11<= p2.endweek then week01

when p2.startweek <= 12 and 12<= p2.endweek then week01

when p2.startweek <= 13 and 13<= p2.endweek then week01

..... --(through all 30 weeks)

else 0 end) as Units

FROM product p1, promotions p2

The results I am getting are if the user entered week 3 and the promotions table tells the system to add 4 weeks, I am only getting back the number of units for week03, rather than the sum of week03 through week07.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Sorry about that. A typo on my part when I cut and paste. I was trying to give an example without actually giving the code which uses a lot of alias. Here is a corrected version of the code.

SELECT Product,

Sum(Case when p2.startweek <= 1 and 1<= p2.endweek then week01

when p2.startweek <= 2 and 2<= p2.endweek then week02

when p2.startweek <= 3 and 3<= p2.endweek then week03

when p2.startweek <= 4 and 4<= p2.endweek then week04

when p2.startweek <= 5 and 5<= p2.endweek then week05

when p2.startweek <= 6 and 6<= p2.endweek then week06

when p2.startweek <= 7 and 7<= p2.endweek then week07

when p2.startweek <= 8 and 8<= p2.endweek then week08

when p2.startweek <= 9 and 9<= p2.endweek then week09

when p2.startweek <= 10 and 10<= p2.endweek then week10

when p2.startweek <= 11 and 11<= p2.endweek then week11

when p2.startweek <= 12 and 12<= p2.endweek then week12

when p2.startweek <= 13 and 13<= p2.endweek then week13

..... --(through all 30 weeks)

else 0 end) as Units

FROM product p1, promotions p2

Can you share all the columns in both the tables product p1, promotions p2.

If possible sample data.

I think this is what you want:

Sum(Case when p2.startweek <= 1 and 1<= p2.endweek then week01 else 0 end

+ case when p2.startweek <= 2 and 2<= p2.endweek then week02 else 0 end

+ case when p2.startweek <= 3 and 3<= p2.endweek then week03 else 0 end

..... --(through all 30 weeks)

else 0 end) as Units

CASE stops when the first WHEN is true.
