Use FetchXML Aggregation

[Applies to: Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011]

In Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 and Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online, FetchXML includes grouping and aggregation features that let you calculate sum, average min, max and count.

The following aggregate functions are supported:

  • sum

  • avg

  • min

  • max

  • count(*)

  • count(attribute name)

About Aggregation

Only one aggregate attribute can be specified in a query and you cannot use the distinct keyword. To create an aggregate attribute, set the keyword aggregate to true, then specify a valid entity name, attribute name, and alias (variable name). You must also specify the type of aggregation you want to perform.

The following example shows a simple aggregate attribute in FetchXML.


<fetch distinct='false' mapping='logical' aggregate='true'> 
   <entity name='entity name'> 
      <attribute name='attribute name' aggregate='count' alias='alias name'/> 
   </entity> 
</fetch>"

The result of a query with an aggregate attribute is different from the results of a standard query. The alias value is used as the tag identifier for the aggregate result.

The following example shows the format of the result of an aggregate query.


<resultset morerecords="0"'> 
   <result>
      <alias>aggregate value</alias>
   </result>
</resultset>"

The following example shows the results of a query when the alias variable is set to account_count.


<resultset morerecords="0"'> 
   <result>
      <account_count>20</account_count>
   </result>
</resultset>"

Avg

The following example shows how to use the avgaggregate attribute.


// Fetch the average of estimatedvalue for all opportunities.  This is the equivalent of 
// SELECT AVG(estimatedvalue) AS estimatedvalue_avg ... in SQL.
System.Console.WriteLine("===============================");
string estimatedvalue_avg = @" 
<fetch distinct='false' mapping='logical' aggregate='true'> 
    <entity name='opportunity'> 
       <attribute name='estimatedvalue' alias='estimatedvalue_avg' aggregate='avg' /> 
    </entity> 
</fetch>";

EntityCollection estimatedvalue_avg_result = _serviceProxy.RetrieveMultiple(new FetchExpression(estimatedvalue_avg));

foreach (var c in estimatedvalue_avg_result.Entities)
{
    decimal aggregate1 = ((Money)((AliasedValue)c["estimatedvalue_avg"]).Value).Value;
    System.Console.WriteLine("Average estimated value: " + aggregate1);

}
System.Console.WriteLine("===============================");

Limitation with null values while computing average

Null values are not considered when Microsoft Dynamics CRM computes the average of data. However, zero (0) is used.

In the following example, with the following data, the average for Account 1 (two entries) is shown as 250 whereas the average for Account 2 (two entries) is shown as 125.

 

Topic Potential Customer Estimated value

Opportunity 1

Account 1

null

Opportunity 2

Account 1

250

Opportunity 3

Account 2

0

Opportunity 4

Account 2

250

Count

The following example shows how to use the countaggregate attribute.


// *****************************************************************************************************************
//                FetchXML      opportunity_count   Aggregate 2
// *****************************************************************************************************************
// Fetch the count of all opportunities.  This is the equivalent of
// SELECT COUNT(*) AS opportunity_count ... in SQL.
string opportunity_count = @" 
<fetch distinct='false' mapping='logical' aggregate='true'> 
    <entity name='opportunity'> 
       <attribute name='name' alias='opportunity_count' aggregate='count'/> 
    </entity> 
</fetch>";

EntityCollection opportunity_count_result = _serviceProxy.RetrieveMultiple(new FetchExpression(opportunity_count));

foreach (var c in opportunity_count_result.Entities)
{
    Int32 aggregate2 = (Int32)((AliasedValue)c["opportunity_count"]).Value;
    System.Console.WriteLine("Count of all opportunities: " + aggregate2); 

}
System.Console.WriteLine("===============================");

CountColumn

The following example shows how to use the countcolumnaggregate attribute.


// *****************************************************************************************************************
//                FetchXML      opportunity_colcount   Aggregate 3
// *****************************************************************************************************************
// Fetch the count of all opportunities.  This is the equivalent of 
// SELECT COUNT(name) AS opportunity_count ... in SQL.
string opportunity_colcount = @" 
<fetch distinct='false' mapping='logical' aggregate='true'> 
    <entity name='opportunity'> 
       <attribute name='name' alias='opportunity_colcount' aggregate='countcolumn'/> 
    </entity> 
</fetch>";

EntityCollection opportunity_colcount_result = _serviceProxy.RetrieveMultiple(new FetchExpression(opportunity_colcount));

foreach (var c in opportunity_colcount_result.Entities)
{
    Int32 aggregate3 = (Int32)((AliasedValue)c["opportunity_colcount"]).Value;
    System.Console.WriteLine("Column count of all opportunities: " + aggregate3);

}
System.Console.WriteLine("===============================");

Count Distinct Columns

The following example shows how to use the countcolumnaggregate attribute to count distinct columns.


// *****************************************************************************************************************
//                FetchXML      opportunity_distcount   Aggregate 4
// *****************************************************************************************************************
// Fetch the count of distinct names for opportunities.  This is the equivalent of 
// SELECT COUNT(DISTINCT name) AS opportunity_count ... in SQL.
string opportunity_distcount = @" 
<fetch distinct='false' mapping='logical' aggregate='true'> 
    <entity name='opportunity'> 
       <attribute name='name' alias='opportunity_distcount' aggregate='countcolumn' distinct='true'/> 
    </entity> 
</fetch>";

EntityCollection opportunity_distcount_result = _serviceProxy.RetrieveMultiple(new FetchExpression(opportunity_distcount));

foreach (var c in opportunity_distcount_result.Entities)
{
    Int32 aggregate4 = (Int32)((AliasedValue)c["opportunity_distcount"]).Value;
    System.Console.WriteLine("Distinct name count of all opportunities: " + aggregate4);

}
System.Console.WriteLine("===============================");

Max

Null values are not considered when Microsoft Dynamics CRM computes the maximum of data. However, zero (0) is used.

The following example shows how to use the maxaggregate attribute.

// *****************************************************************************************************************
// Fetch the maximum estimatedvalue of all opportunities.  This is the equivalent of 
// SELECT MAX(estimatedvalue) AS estimatedvalue_max ... in SQL.
string estimatedvalue_max = @" 
<fetch distinct='false' mapping='logical' aggregate='true'> 
    <entity name='opportunity'> 
       <attribute name='estimatedvalue' alias='estimatedvalue_max' aggregate='max' /> 
    </entity>

foreach (var c in estimatedvalue_max_result.Entities)
{
    decimal aggregate5 = ((Money)((AliasedValue)c["estimatedvalue_max"]).Value).Value;
    System.Console.WriteLine("Max estimated value of all opportunities: " + aggregate5);

}
System.Console.WriteLine("===============================");

Min

Null values are not considered when Microsoft Dynamics CRM computes the minimum of data. However, zero (0) is used.

The following example shows how to use the minaggregate attribute.


// *****************************************************************************************************************
//                FetchXML      estimatedvalue_min   Aggregate 6
// *****************************************************************************************************************
