    Unanswered: How to subtract quantities in sql? Formula columns?

    I have created an oracle report

    1)One form records the Supplies INCOMING

    2) One form records Supplies being USED till this date

    I Need to subtract the two. I have created two queries in oracle reports the first query Sums up all the supplies. 2) Sums up all supplies USEd


    Select distinct a.ItemName ||' '|| b.ItemSize,sum(b.Quantity)
    from Thi_Admin.CathLabItems a,Thi_Admin.CathLabSuppliesDetails b
    where a.itemcode=b.itemcode
    group by a.ItemName ||' '|| b.ItemSize;

    2) SELECT distinct c.ItemName ||' '|| a.ItemSize, sum(a.Quantity)


    Thi_Admin.PatientsCathItemsUsed a, Thi_Admin.PatientsCathProcedures b,Thi_Admin.CathLabItems c

    WHERE a.CathID = b.CathID

    Outer Join

    OUTER JOIN both queries and add a column with the difference between the SUM()s.
