Recently I wanted to use both "limit" and "sum" in mysql query.
"Sum" will return single value while "limit" is for returning multiple records.
So, the below query did't work.
select sum(price) as total_price from transactions ORDER by transactiondate DESC limit 50,10
Anyway, I needed this kind of query to get sum of price from all the records starting from 51 to 60 in a pagination script.
I had to redefine the query as below to make it work.
select sum(price) as total_price from ( select price from transactions ORDER by transactiondate DESC limit 50,10 ) as prices
