Specifies a search condition for a group or an aggregate. HAVING can be used only with the SELECT statement. HAVING is typically used in a GROUP BY clause. When GROUP BY is not used, HAVING behaves like a WHERE clause.
Specifies the search condition for the group or the aggregate to meet. When HAVING is used with GROUP BY ALL, the HAVING clause overrides ALL.
The text, image, and ntext data types cannot be used in a HAVING clause.
Note: Using the HAVING clause in the SELECT statement does not affect the way the CUBE operator groups the result set and returns summary aggregate rows.
The following example that uses a simple
HAVING clause retrieves the total for each
SalesOrderID from the
SalesOrderDetail table that exceeds
USE AdventureWorks ; GO SELECT SalesOrderID, SUM(LineTotal) AS SubTotal FROM Sales.SalesOrderDetail GROUP BY SalesOrderID HAVING SUM(LineTotal) > 100000.00 ORDER BY SalesOrderID ;
