I have two tables, one with all the items (iv00101) and one with history of sales per month (iv30102). I need to make a query where it displays the item number, the item description, and the sum of the sales of the months I select.
select a.itemnmbr as Number, a.itemdesc as Description, sum(b.smrysales) as Sales
from iv00101 as a left join iv30102 as b on a.itemnmbr = b.itemnmbr
where (b.month = 12 and b.year=2003)
that gives me no problem when the item has a sales history on december/2003. But if an item was created january/2004 and I make the same query, that item doesn't appear beacuse it has no sales history on december/2003. I need it to appear with the sum(b.smrysales) as Sales = 0
