HAVING (Transact-SQL)

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.

Applies to: SQL Server (SQL Server 2008 through current version), Azure SQL Database.

[ HAVING <search condition> ]

<search_condition>

Specifies the search condition for the group or the aggregate to meet.

The text, image, and ntext data types cannot be used in a HAVING clause.

The following example that uses a simple HAVING clause retrieves the total for each SalesOrderID from the SalesOrderDetail table that exceeds $100000.00.

USE AdventureWorks2012 ;
GO
SELECT SalesOrderID, SUM(LineTotal) AS SubTotal
FROM Sales.SalesOrderDetail
GROUP BY SalesOrderID
HAVING SUM(LineTotal) > 100000.00
ORDER BY SalesOrderID ;
