Aggregate Multiple Columns
Hello,
Is there a way to aggregate multiple columns in Hive? I can do it in two separate queries but is there something similar to sum(col1,col2)?
Thanks, Richin

Re: Aggregate Multiple Columns
Hi Richin,
Do you mean summing the values from two columns into one number, or calculating sum of both columns into two sums in one query? Both is possible, the first can be done simply as SUM(col1 + col2), the second can be accomplished with two sums: sum(col1), sum(col2). Does that answer your question? Best regards, Jan

RE: Aggregate Multiple Columns
Thanks Jan,
I was looking for the first one, summing the values from two columns into one number. I did it as sum(col1) + sum(col2), but your solution is more elegant ☺
