SQL HAVING

Another thing people may want to do is to limit the output based on the corresponding sum (or any other aggregate functions). For example, we might want to see only the stores with sales over $1,500. Instead of using the WHERE clause in the SQL statement, though, we need to use the HAVING clause, which is reserved for aggregate functions. The HAVING clause is typically placed near the end of the SQL statement, and a SQL statement with the HAVING clause may or may not include the GROUP BY clause. The syntax for HAVING is,

SELECT "column_name1", SUM("column_name2")
FROM "table_name"
GROUP BY "column_name1"
HAVING (arithematic function condition)

Note: the GROUP BY clause is optional.

In our example, table Store_Information,

Table Store_Information
store_name Sales Date
Los Angeles $1500 Jan-05-1999
San Diego $250 Jan-07-1999
Los Angeles $300 Jan-08-1999
Boston $700 Jan-08-1999

we would type,

SELECT store_name, SUM(sales)
FROM Store_Information
GROUP BY store_name
HAVING SUM(sales) > 1500

Result:

store_nameSUM(Sales)
Los Angeles
$1800
