I have a table which manages folder structure. Hence it has a parent-child relationship. We trigger a query to sum all documents in the complete heirarchy:

   SELECT  folder_name name,
      document_count,
      (SELECT SUM(e2.document_count) 
        FROM       folder_mapping e2      START WITH e2.folder_mapping_id       = e1.folder_mapping_id CONNECT BY prior e2.folder_mapping_id = e2.parent_folder_mapping_id
      )
      sum_sal
    FROM
      folder_mapping e1

Now I have a requirement to calculate the sum of one more column

    SELECT  folder_name name,
      document_count,
      (SELECT SUM(e2.document_count), **sum(e2.folder_count)**

        FROM       folder_mapping e2      START WITH e2.folder_mapping_id       = e1.folder_mapping_id CONNECT BY prior e2.folder_mapping_id = e2.parent_folder_mapping_id
      )
      sum_sal
    FROM
      folder_mapping e1

This query throws error:>ORA-00913: too many values.

But what can be done to achieve the same?

Query with help of JSapkota

  ||'', (DECODE(fm.shared_flag, '0', 'Not Shared', '1', 'Fully Shared',

    SELECT
      folder_mapping_id,
      SUM(document_count) Total_Doc_Count,

              *
            FROM
              folder_mapping
            WHERE
              organization_id='Org_498'
          )
          --where organization_id='Org_498'
          CONNECT BY PRIOR folder_mapping_id = parent_folder_mapping_id
      )
    GROUP BY
      folder_mapping_id
  )
  fm,
  (
    SELECT
      folder_mapping_id,
      document_count,
      folder_name,
      folder_count,
      SHARED_FLAG
    FROM
      folder_mapping
    WHERE
      organization_id='Org_498'
  )
  fm_main
WHERE
  fm_main.folder_mapping_id = fm.folder_mapping_id
ORDER BY
  fm.folder_mapping_id;

With input as follows: enter image description here

Current output is: enter image description here

The output is pretty much OK except the fact that we want root9 to be displayed as fully shared since it is a subfolder of root8 which is fully shared.

Convention followed for shared flag
--0 - not shared
--1 - fully shared
--2 - partially shared

In case a folder is fully shared its subfolders are fully shared as well.

In case a folder is partially shared or fully shared its parent is partially shared.

  • Added the data, yes first query is working.. second query is not working ORA-00913: too many values – Varun May 3 '16 at 11:05

ORA-00913 too many values

Cause: The SQL statement requires two sets of values equal in number. This error occurs when the second set contains more items than the first set. For example, the subquery in a WHERE or HAVING clause may return too many columns, or a VALUES or SELECT clause may return more columns than are listed in the INSERT.
Action: Check the number of items in each set and change the SQL statement to make them equal.

In your case your subquery is returning two columns to the first query expecting one column. You can change your query as follow.

SELECT  folder_name name,
  document_count,
  (SELECT SUM(e2.document_count)
    FROM       folder_mapping e2      START WITH e2.folder_mapping_id       = e1.folder_mapping_id CONNECT BY prior e2.folder_mapping_id = e2.parent_folder_mapping_id
  )
  sum_sal, (SELECT SUM(e2.document_count)
    FROM       folder_mapping e2      START WITH e2.folder_mapping_id       = e1.folder_mapping_id CONNECT BY prior e2.folder_mapping_id = e2.parent_folder_mapping_id
  ) folder_count_total
FROM
  folder_mapping e1

That was just the fix for your error. Actually you can use the following query to get the desired output which is better(In terms of cost) than the original query.

SQL> desc folder_mapping;
 Name                      Null?    Type

 FOLDER_COUNT                       NUMBER

  • JSapkota - this will be really heavy option to perform we would like something which is cost effective – Varun May 3 '16 at 11:32
  • actual requirement is even vast and needs to make some checks on all the columns this is a small portion of actual requirement.. So the solution i am seeking should be extensible enough to perform some actions based on level of folder in heirarchy – Varun May 3 '16 at 11:54

    @Varun Please notice the edit for the better query prepared according to the information provided. – JSapkota May 3 '16 at 13:42
  • the output seems good, great effort thanks alot :) – Varun May 4 '16 at 4:25
  • can something be done to achieve bottom up approach as well, please check the updated question – Varun May 4 '16 at 9:25
