# Troubles calculating success rate code • ### Question

• User1309273214 posted

Hi all,

In a table that contains training records, several data fields for each record stores the grading for the specific item as a number (datatype: int, NULL is allowed).

Grading is from 1 (best) to 5 (failed), and I need to calculate the success rate, i.e. how many percent of the gradings for the specific items is 3 and above and how many percent is 4 and below. It should be based on all the records, so NULL have to be omitted somehow.

A developer was kind enough to provide this code for me:

SELECT count(*) FROM opc t WHERE o24 IS NOT NULL AND o24 <4 DECLARE @SmallderCount decimal(10,2) SELECT @SmallderCount = count(*) FROM opc WHERE o24 IS NOT NULL AND o24 <4 SELECT CAST( @SmallderCount/ COUNT(*) *100 AS decimal(10,2)) AS SmallderPercent FROM opc WHERE o24 IS NOT NULL SELECT CAST((COUNT(*)- @SmallderCount)/ COUNT(*) *100 AS decimal(10,2)) LargerPercent FROM opc WHERE o24 IS NOT NULL

...but it only returns the total no of records in the table (opc) and not the success rate?

He was very kind to try once more, and came up with this:

DECLARE @SmallerCount decimal(10,2) ,@TotalCount decimal(10,2)

SELECT @SmallerCount = count(*)

FROM opc

WHERE o24 IS NOT NULL AND o24 <4

SELECT @TotalCount = count(*)

FROM opc

WHERE o24 IS NOT NULL

SELECT CAST( ((@SmallderCount/ @TotalCount) *100) AS decimal(10,2)) AS SmallderPercent,

CAST( (( (@TotalCount- @SmallderCount)/ @TotalCount ) *100) AS decimal(10,2)) LargerPercent

This code actually provide the correct numbers, but gives this error:  The Declare SQL construct or statement is not supported.

I have tried to understand Store procedures as well as data binding, but cannot figure out how to solve this case. I am looking for a SQL query I can use on an aspx page – can anyone out there guide me to where I go wrong on the first code example ?

Best regards and thanks

```SELECT CAST( (((SELECT count(*) FROM opc WHERE o24 IS NOT NULL AND o24 <4)*1.0/ (SELECT count(*) FROM opc WHERE o24 IS NOT NULL)) *100) AS decimal(10,2)) AS SmallerPercent,
CAST( (( ( (SELECT count(*) FROM opc WHERE o24 IS NOT NULL)- (SELECT count(*) FROM opc WHERE o24 IS NOT NULL AND o24 <4)) *1.0 /  (SELECT count(*) FROM opc WHERE o24 IS NOT NULL) ) *100) AS decimal(10,2)) LargerPercent```

Check the spelling of your variable name:

The @SmallderCount   should be @SmallerCount in your query.

Right you are, sorry about that - the correct spelled code looks like this:

DECLARE @SmallerCount decimal(10,2) ,@TotalCount decimal(10,2)

SELECT @SmallerCount = count(*)

FROM opc

WHERE o24 IS NOT NULL AND o24 <4

SELECT @TotalCount = count(*)

FROM opc

WHERE o24 IS NOT NULL

SELECT CAST( ((@SmallerCount/ @TotalCount) *100) AS decimal(10,2)) AS SmallerPercent,

CAST( (( (@TotalCount- @SmallerCount)/ @TotalCount ) *100) AS decimal(10,2)) LargerPercent

The code works, but I need it to be changed to a code that does not require a stored procedure but just a query I can insert on a aspx page ?

Thanks
