Hello Experts,

I have simple question yet confusing(for me)...

I have a table which results after grabbing a select statement on that table are as follows

select * from VINBINI where  BABLOC='AE084'

BAITEM	               BABLOC	       BAQOH
DU266004817         	AE084     	7
DU266027621         	AE084     	3
DU266029704         	AE084     	4
DU290124118         	AE084     	36
GY407478374         	AE084     	34
GY766723358         	AE084     	0
KU1774913           	AE084     	5
KU1803313           	AE084     	0
KU1905013           	AE084     	0
KU1905213           	AE084     	0
KU1908713           	AE084     	0
KU1915313           	AE084     	7
KU2100663           	AE084     	0
KU2103303           	AE084     	0
KU2137223           	AE084     	0
KU2161003           	AE084     	0
KU2170103           	AE084     	0
KU2176683           	AE084     	6

I have another query where it returns a result set say
Select * from TABLE1

Now is there any way I can call the first select statement to know if there are multiple BAITEM(s) in same BABLOC
Meaning AE084 contains different Items here. like DU, GY,KU etc...
Now I want to add something like
  AE084    "YES"
  AE124     "NO"
  AF158     "YES"

So on...

This should be a value that must be ultimately in reusltset of the select * from TABLE1 query (very huge text here to place)

Can anyone help me with this please?

I don't know DB2, but in MySql you can do seomething like this:
select babloc,
  (select count(distinct left(BAITEM,2)) from VINBINI i where i.BABLOC = e.BABLOC) > 1,
from VINBINI e
group by BABLOC


I don't really understand topic 2. But if I see it right, you can simply create a view[^] on top of this query. If regular view would take too much to recalculate, you can use materialized view approach (see:[^])

Almost exactly the same as solution 1, but worth a 5!

Thank you. I took some time to make it in sqlfiddle. But it is working at least.
Maciej Los 26-Oct-15 14:52pm
I understand it. A 5 is for effort, Zoltan.

Thank you ...
You didn't provide an example of a BABLOC that doesn't have a shared bin, so anything that follow is just a guess.

select BABLOC, Shared_Bin = case when BinUse > 1 then "Yes" else "No"
from (
select BABLOC, BinUse = count(BAITEM) from VINBINI
group by BABLOC) dt

It was my first thought!
Zoltán Zörgő 26-Oct-15 14:53pm
Look promissing, but does not seem to execute. Try it in my sqlfiddle.

I didn't know that it would be 'exact', but wanted to provide a premise... my background is SQL Server, and it doesn't look like the OP identified the environment.
sudevsu 26-Oct-15 16:34pm
This actually didn't work. I have used exactly same thing I get the below error
"You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'case when BinUse > 1 then "Yes" else "No" from (select BABLOC, BinUse = count(BA' at line 1"

BTW, I did this in MYSQL instead of DB2 to check .
