SQL Question

Convert an SQL query to Rails Active Record query last step

I have an SQL query like the following:

select y.bid, format(((sum(y.loyalty_checks)/SUM(y.total_receipts_in_POS)) * 100),2) as Participation_Rate_or_percentage_loyalty_checkins from
(
SELECT receipt_stats.`business_id` as bid,
SUM(receipt_stats.total_receipts) AS total_receipts_in_POS,
c.loyalty_checks AS loyalty_checks
FROM receipt_stats
left JOIN
(
SELECT location_id as l, COUNT(checkins.`created_at`) AS loyalty_checks
FROM checkins
left join locations on locations.id = checkins.`location_id`
WHERE checkins.business_id = 570 and
DATE(receipt_date) BETWEEN '2016-01-01' and '2016-01-31'
AND checkins.STATUS = 'loyalty' and checkins.`approved` = 1
GROUP BY checkins.location_id
) c ON c.l = receipt_stats.location_id
where
date(receipt_stats.`receipt_date`) between '2016-01-01' and '2016-01-31'
and receipt_stats.`business_id` = 570
group by receipt_stats.`business_id`, receipt_stats.`location_id`
) y


I have been able to convert the middle part of the query to Rails query as follows:

def fetch_participation_rate(start_point,end_point)
receipt_stat_data = ReceiptStat.select("business_id", "SUM(receipt_stats.total_receipts) AS total_receipts_in_POS")
checkin = loyalty_checkins.select("location_id", "COUNT(checkins.`created_at`) AS loyalty_checks").where("DATE(receipt_date) BETWEEN ? and ?",start_point, end_point).
group("checkins.location_id")
stat = receipt_stat_data.select("c.loyalty_checks AS loyalty_checks").joins("left join (#{checkin.to_sql}) c ON c.location_id = receipt_stats.location_id")
stat = stat.where("date(receipt_stats.receipt_date) between ? and ?", start_point, end_point)
stat = stat.where("receipt_stats.business_id = ?", business.id)
stat = stat.group("receipt_stats.business_id, receipt_stats.location_id")
end


The only part where I am stuck is the first line of SQL query, i.e.

select y.bid, format(((sum(y.loyalty_checks)/SUM(y.total_receipts_in_POS)) * 100),2) as Participation_Rate_or_percentage_loyalty_checkins from


and the last

) y


Please help me solve this problem.
Thanks.

Answer

Use the select function along with a from to wrap this query in an outer SELECT/FROM clause:

def fetch_participation_rate(start_point,end_point)
  receipt_stat_data = ReceiptStat.select("business_id", "SUM(receipt_stats.total_receipts) AS total_receipts_in_POS")
  checkin = loyalty_checkins.select("location_id", "COUNT(checkins.`created_at`) AS loyalty_checks").where("DATE(receipt_date) BETWEEN ? and ?",start_point, end_point).
    group("checkins.location_id")
  stat = receipt_stat_data.select("c.loyalty_checks AS loyalty_checks").joins("left join (#{checkin.to_sql}) c ON c.location_id = receipt_stats.location_id")
  stat = stat.where("date(receipt_stats.receipt_date) between ? and ?", start_point, end_point)
  stat = stat.where("receipt_stats.business_id = ?", business.id)
  stat = stat.group("receipt_stats.business_id, receipt_stats.location_id")

  # Wrap our query in an outer query:
  ReceiptStat.select("y.bid, format(((sum(y.loyalty_checks)/SUM(y.total_receipts_in_POS)) * 100),2) as Participation_Rate_or_percentage_loyalty_checkins").from(stat, :y)
end

Note that the :y symbol in the second argument specifies the alias of the subquery (y in your case).

Also, while I can't check this against your code directly, you may find the following formatting more readable:

def fetch_participation_rate(start_point, end_point)
  checkin = loyalty_checkins
              .select("location_id", "COUNT(checkins.`created_at`) AS loyalty_checks")
              .where("DATE(receipt_date) BETWEEN ? AND ?", start_point, end_point)
              .group("checkins.location_id")

  stat = ReceiptStat.select("business_id, SUM(receipt_stats.total_receipts) AS total_receipts_in_POS, c.loyalty_checks AS loyalty_checks")
           .joins("LEFT JOIN (#{checkin.to_sql}) c ON c.location_id = receipt_stats.location_id")
           .where("DATE(receipt_stats.receipt_date) BETWEEN ? AND ?", start_point, end_point)
           .where("receipt_stats.business_id = ?", business.id)
           .group("receipt_stats.business_id, receipt_stats.location_id")

  ReceiptStat
    .select("y.bid, FORMAT((SUM(y.loyalty_checks)/SUM(y.total_receipts_in_POS) * 100), 2) AS Participation_Rate_or_percentage_loyalty_checkins")
    .from(stat, :y)
end
