Calculate Running Total, Total of a Column and Row

31 Aug 2022

Many times, you required to show information on each transaction and also keep a Running Total and Final Total like GridView in Asp.Net. In this article, I am going to explain, how can you achieve this using SQL Query in a simple and easy way.

Suppose you have the below CustomerOrders table and has the data as shown below:

CREATE TABLE CustomerOrders
 OrderID int identity,
 Amount Decimal(8,2),
 OrderDate SmallDatetime default getdate()

 INSERT INTO CustomerOrders(Amount) Values(120.12)
 INSERT INTO CustomerOrders(Amount) Values(20.12)
 INSERT INTO CustomerOrders(Amount) Values(10.12)
 INSERT INTO CustomerOrders(Amount) Values(30.12)
 INSERT INTO CustomerOrders(Amount) Values(40)

 SELECT * FROM CustomerOrders

Calculating Running Total

Let's see how to calculate the running total using SQL Query as given below:

 select OrderID, OrderDate, CO.Amount
 ,(select sum(Amount) from CustomerOrders 
 where OrderID <= CO.OrderID)
 'Running Total'
from CustomerOrders CO

Calculating Final Total

Let's see how to calculate the final total using ROLLUP within SQL Query as given below:

SELECT OrderID, SUM(Amount) AS Amount
FROM CustomerOrders

Calculating Total of All Numeric columns in a row

Let's see how to calculate the total of all numeric fields within a row using SQL Query as given below:

SELECT OrderID, Amount, SUM(OrderID+Amount) AS RowNumericColSum
FROM CustomerOrders
GROUP BY OrderID,Amount
