1C:Enterprise query language offers the GROUP BY clause for grouping (collapsing) records by specific fields. This clause is similar to the GROUP BY clause of the SQL standard but does have a few peculiarities.
The major peculiarity is that when the GROUP BY clause contains a field, all the fields received from it using . (dot) are also considered grouped. Example:
SELECT CustomerOrder.Counterparty, CustomerOrder.Counterparty.Code, CustomerOrder.Counterparty.Description, SUM(CustomerOrder.DocumentTotal) AS DocumentTotal FROM Document.CustomerOrder AS CustomerOrder GROUP BY CustomerOrder.Counterparty
In this example automatic grouping by the CustomerOrder.Counterparty.Code and CustomerOrder.Counterparty.Description fields will be performed because the GROUP BY clause contains the CustomerOrder.Counterparty field with its data received using . (dot).
