SQL Query: 3 Methods for Calculating Cumulative SUM

Image
SQL provides various constructs for calculating cumulative sums, offering flexibility and efficiency in data analysis. In this article, we explore three distinct SQL queries that facilitate the computation of cumulative sums. Each query leverages different SQL constructs to achieve the desired outcome, catering to diverse analytical needs and preferences. Using Window Functions (e.g., PostgreSQL, SQL Server, Oracle) SELECT id, value, SUM(value) OVER (ORDER BY id) AS cumulative_sum  FROM your_table; This query uses the SUM() window function with the OVER clause to calculate the cumulative sum of the value column ordered by the id column. Using Subqueries (e.g., MySQL, SQLite): SELECT t1.id, t1.value, SUM(t2.value) AS cumulative_sum FROM your_table t1 JOIN your_table t2 ON t1.id >= t2.id GROUP BY t1.id, t1.value ORDER BY t1.id; This query uses a self-join to calculate the cumulative sum. It joins the table with itself, matching rows where the id in the first table is greater than or

How to Use Python Try and Except Logic Correctly

In Python, you can avoid exceptions using Try and Except logic. The Error-free programs save a lot of time. Also, you can keep away defects in production.   How to Use Python Try and Except Logic Correctly In Python, you can handle un-known errors by using TRY and EXCEPT logic. If the programmer does not take care of this, the default is for  Python to print  an error message and stops execution.  So the responsibility of a programmer is upfront he/she has to find errors and handle them correctly. It is possible if you use the  TRY and EXCEPT. Python Syntax for Try and Except. try:       c = a/b except:       c = 1000000 Try ends with ':' it says that Try block start here. In this block, you can write actual logic. The Except: is another block. That means in this block programmer can specify some value. And that value populates when any error happens. Try and Except Examples. Example: 1. Below is the example to give the expected error in except. try:       c = a/b except Ze
