Member Posts: 7,168
Say for eg: my data is like this
order by col3
col1 col2 col3
1 5 1
1 10 2
2 2 3
2 5 4
1 15 5
I hav to get o/p as
col1 sum_col2
1 15
2 7
1 15
I have to group by preserving the order
Pls give me suggestions..

What do you mean preserving the order? In your example, how are you grouping the col2?. If you sum the col2 based on col1, you would get
col1 sum_col2
1 30
2 7
I don't understand how the col2 is summed up? Can you explain? 
Thanks for the reply
col1 col2 col3
1 5 1
1 10 2summed here, coz col1 changes
2 2 3
2 5 4summed here, coz col1 changes
1 15 5summed here, coz col1 changes
3 25 6summed here

I have to group by preserving the order
with t as
( select 1 as col1, 5 as col2, 1 as col3 from dual union all
select 1 as col1, 10 as col2, 2 as col3 from dual union all
select 2 as col1, 2 as col2, 3 as col3 from dual union all
select 2 as col1, 5 as col2, 4 as col3 from dual union all
select 1 as col1, 15 as col2, 5 as col3 from dual
)
select col1, sum(col2) as col2
from
( select col1, col2, sum(start_of_group) over (order by col3) as group_no
from
( select col1, col2, col3,
decode(lag(col1) over (order by col3), col1, 0, 1) as start_of_group
from t
)
)
group by group_no, col1
;
COL1 COL2

Thanks!!!
Nicely done and saved my life.. 
Elic, Simple and neat solution. I was trying something similar and got this complicated solution.
SQL> with t 2 as 3 ( 4 select 1 col1,5 col2,1 col3 from dual 5 union all 6 select 1,10,2 from dual 7 union all 8 select 2,2,3 from dual 9 union all 10 select 2,5,4 from dual 11 union all 12 select 1,15,5 from dual 13 union all 14 select 3,25,6 from dual 15 union all 16 select 3,10,7 from dual 17 union all 18 select 3,5,8 from dual 19 union all 20 select 3,15,9 from dual 21 union all 22 select 4,5,10 from dual 23 ) 24 select col1,case when s=1 and rownum = 1 then sm 25 when s=1 and rownum <> 1 then smlag(sm,1) over(partition by 1 order by col3) 26 when s is null then col2 27 end col2 28 from 29 ( 30 select col1,col2,col3,s,sm 31 from 32 (select col1,col2,col3, 33 case when col1=lag(col1,1) over(partition by 1 order by col3) and col1<>lead(col1,1) over(partition by 1 order by col3) 34 then 1 35 when col1=lead(col1,1) over(partition by 1 order by col3) 36 then 0 37 else null end s, 38 sum(col2) over(order by col3) sm 39 from t 40 ) 41 where s=1 42 or s is null 43 order by col3 44 ) 45 / COL1 COL2   1 15 2 7 1 15 3 55 4 5

Thanks for ur patience, Mohana..

Elic's solution is very great.

I have reserched solution which this problem can solve.
Therefore, I created this solution.
Below solution consults "Tabibitozan".
"Tabibitozan" is Japanese language.
"Tabibitozan" is one of math problem. (http://www.manabinoba.com/index.cfm/4,757,73,html?year=2002)
I do not know what "Tabibitozan" is called in English.with ValTable as(
select 1 ID,5 Val,1 SortOrder from dual
union all select 1,10,2 from dual
union all select 2,2,3 from dual
union all select 2,5,4 from dual
union all select 1,15,5 from dual
union all select 3,25,6 from dual
union all select 3,10,7 from dual
union all select 3,5,8 from dual
union all select 3,15,9 from dual
union all select 4,5,10 from dual)
select ID,sum(Val) as Val
from (select ID,Val,SortOrder,
Row_Number() over(order by SortOrder)
Row_Number() over(partition by ID order by SortOrder) as makeGroup
from ValTable)
group by ID,makeGroup
order by min(SortOrder);ID VAL

I imagined that there are 5 people called X,A,B,C, and D.
X always walks 1m. (Row_Number() over(order by SortOrder))
When ID = 1, A walks 1m. (Row_Number() over(partition by ID order by SortOrder))
When ID = 2, B walks 1m. (Row_Number() over(partition by ID order by SortOrder))
When ID = 3, C walks 1m. (Row_Number() over(partition by ID order by SortOrder))
When ID = 4, D walks 1m. (Row_Number() over(partition by ID order by SortOrder))
Then,
I derived distance between X and A.
I derived distance between X and B.
I derived distance between X and C.
I derived distance between X and D.
Then, I made group using these distance. (group by ID,makeGroup)
