For built-in ordered analytic functions specific to Vantage, such as CSUM and MAVG, GROUP BY determines the partitions over which the function executes. For an example, see Example: Specifying GROUP BY Using an Ordered Analytic Function.

For window functions, such as SUM and AVG, GROUP BY collapses all rows with the same value for the group-by columns into a single row. The GROUP BY clause must include all the columns specified in the:
  • Select list of the SELECT clause
  • Window functions in the select list of a SELECT clause
  • Window functions in the search condition of a QUALIFY clause
  • The condition in a RESET WHEN clause
