I want to write a query that will return multiply of two fields. Is it possible?

// Aggregate Query to collect Sum of all Combinations of Brand Name and Reporting Groups.           
    List<AggregateResult> arrAllDaysCRsResult = [SELECT Sum(Relative_Date_Calculated__c) totalRewards, Brand_Name__c, Reporting_Group__c, Contractor__c FROM Contractor_Rewards__c 
                                        WHERE Brand_Name_Calculated__c in:brandNameSet AND Contractor__c in:contactsMap.keyset() // AND Reporting_Group__c in:reportingGroupSet
                                        group by Brand_Name__c, Reporting_Group__c, Contractor__c ];  

here is my soql query and i want Relative_Date_Calculated__c* TRANS_AMT__c

    Turning your question into a completely different question is a bit of an abuse of the system. If you do so again it will just get rolled back (again). If you want to make minor edits, that's fine. But please do not ask a completely different question here when there is already an answer which has been well received.

As far as I know, it is not possible to multiply fields in SOQL but would be glad to be wrong about that.

Workaround would be to create a formula field like num1num2Multiple which will multiply these two fields ( Relative_Date_Calculated__c* TRANS_AMT__c).

Now get this Formula field in SOQL.

SELECT num1num2Multiple FROM Contractor_Rewards__c 

You can remove this field from pagelayout if you do not want to show it on UI

  • hello samir..!! Thank you for the reply but i didn't get what is num1 and num2?? Did you mean Relative_Date_Calculated__cTRANS_AMT__c OR (Relative_Date_Calculated__cTRANS_AMT__c)Multiple.. can you please clear my doubt..Thank you. Apr 28, 2017 at 13:25

    They are sample fields.Assume num 1 is Relative_Date_Calculated__c and num 2 is TRANS_AMT__c and num1num2Multiple is Relative_Date_Calculated__c* TRANS_AMT__c

    You can not multiply two fields in the query

    You can reference your formula field Relative_Date_Calculated__c in new formula field.No need to make changed in your code.
