Items with sales above $10,000.00

Let's say we have two tables, 'Orders' and 'Customers' where the fields are:

Orders
------
ItemID(PK)
Qty

Customers
---------
ItemID(FK)
CostperUnit

Now if we have to find those Item IDs whose sales figure has gone above $10,000.00, what will be the query for this?


That's a good example of where you would use the HAVING clause with a table join to calculate the quantity times cost per unit.

 select Orders.ItemID
      , sum(Qty * CostperUnit) as Sales
   from Orders
  inner join Customers
     on Orders.ItemID = Customers.ItemID
  group by
        Orders.ItemID
 having sum(Qty * CostperUnit) > 10000
