SQL Server – CTE Recursive SUM Value From Different Table

I have a table with data stored hierarchically in a table named CsOrganization like in the following table.

Table Name : CsOrganization
OrgId   OrgParentId    OrgName
1       NULL           X COMPANY
2       1              Administrator
3       2              Adm 1
4       2              Adm 2
5       3              Adm 1_1

And then there’s a table named EmHisOrganization which related to CsOrganization table like in the following table.

  • Table Name : EmHisOrganization
    EmpId   OrgId    
    1       2          
    2       2        
    3       3       
    4       4        
    5       5        

    Each employee will have overtime data based on the organization they have, and they stored in EmOvertime table.

    Table Name : EmOvertime
    EmpId   TotalOtReal    
    1       1.00          
    2       2.00        
    3       3.00       
    4       2.00        
    5       1.00 

    The problem is I need to get the sum of TotalHours based on each Organization. The sum of TotalHours must also sum all of its child’s TotalHours data. So far, I managed to figure out their parent and child, but I can’t figure out how to get TotalHours data from a different table and make a sum of it. As far as I know, I need to join those tables to get TotalHours, but unfortunately CTE Recursive doesn’t allow to use OUTER JOIN in the syntax. Here’s the output I want based on the examples above:

    Desired Output
    OrgId      OrgName       TotalHours    
    1          X COMPANY     9.00
    2          Administrator 9.00
    3          Adm 1         4.00 
    4          Adm 2         2.00
    5          Adm 1_1       1.00   

    Notice that TotalHours of Adm 1 is from the sum Employee with ID 3 which has a value of 3.00 in TotalHours column and Employee with ID 5 which has a value of 1.00 in TotalHours column, which resulted 4.00 in the desired table. The same goes when OrgId with ID 1 and 2 got the value of 9.00 in TotalHours.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Edited On 09/05/2016, 12.02, added relationship of the tables and my query attempts.

    Here’s the look of the relationship: Table Relationship.

    My Query attempts (these resulted 0.00 on each Organization, but the anchor query is showing the right value, if the where clause is deprecated):

    With OrgTree (OrgId, OrgName, TotalHours) AS
    SELECT      orgId, orgN, SUM(eReal) AS TotalHours
    FROM        (SELECT OrgId AS orgId, OrgName AS orgN, CASE WHEN x.TotalOtReal IS NULL THEN 0 ELSE x.TotalOtReal END AS eReal
    FROM        (SELECT f.OrgId, f.OrgName, o.TotalOtReal
    FROM        dbo.CsOrganization AS f LEFT OUTER JOIN
    (SELECT     OrgId, SUM(TotalOtReal) AS TotalOtReal
    FROM        (SELECT a.EmpId, a.OrgId, b.TotalOtReal
    FROM        dbo.EmHisOrganization AS a LEFT OUTER JOIN
    (SELECT     EmpId, SUM(TotalOtReal) AS TotalOtReal
    FROM        dbo.EmOvertime AS a
    GROUP BY EmpId) AS b ON a.EmpId = b.EmpId) AS a_1
    GROUP BY OrgId) AS o ON f.OrgId = o.OrgId
    ) AS x WHERE OrgId = 1) AS xx
    GROUP BY orgId, orgN
    SELECT a.OrgId, a.OrgName, TotalHours FROM dbo.CsOrganization a
    INNER JOIN OrgTree o ON a.OrgParentId = o.OrgId
    SELECT a.OrgId, a.OrgName, SUM(a.TotalHours) AS TotalHours FROM OrgTree a
    GROUP BY a.OrgId, a.OrgName

    • CTE_OrgHours calculates the simple sum of overtime hours for all employees of each organisation.
    • CTE_Recursive is the recursive CTE that traverses the hierarchy of organisations.
    • Final SELECT groups the traversed tree to sum hours for each node (organisation) of the tree.

    Run this query step-by-step, CTE-by-CTE and examine intermediate results to get a better understanding of how it works.

            @CsOrganization AS Org
            LEFT JOIN @EmHisOrganization AS Emp ON Emp.OrgId = Org.OrgID
