`RATIO_TO_REPORT`

is an analytic function. It computes the ratio of a value to the sum of a set of values. If `expr`

evaluates to null, then the ratio-to-report value also evaluates to null.

The set of values is determined by the `query_partition_clause`

. If you omit that clause, then the ratio-to-report is computed over all rows returned by the query.

You cannot use `RATIO_TO_REPORT`

or any other analytic function for `expr`

. That is, you cannot nest analytic functions, but you can use other built-in function expressions for `expr`

. Please refer to "About SQL Expressions" for information on valid forms of `expr`

.

The following example calculates the ratio-to-report value of each purchasing clerk's salary to the total of all purchasing clerks' salaries:

SELECT last_name, salary, RATIO_TO_REPORT(salary) OVER () AS rr FROM employees WHERE job_id = 'PU_CLERK'; LAST_NAME SALARY RR ------------------------- ---------- ---------- Khoo 3100 .223021583 Baida 2900 .208633094 Tobias 2800 .201438849 Himuro 2600 .18705036 Colmenares 2500 .179856115
