Hi 

Try the below code:
 
for(AggregateResult q : [select Project__c, sum(Amount)  amt, sum(npe01__Amount_Outstanding__c)  amt1
        from Opportunity where (StageName = 'Complete - Won' or StageName = 'Agree Payment Schedule'  or StageName = 'Sign Contract'
        or StageName = 'Pledged' or StageName = 'Funding approved') and Project__c != null and Project__c IN :ProjectIds group by Project__c])
   {
       
	   decimal value=((decimal)q.get('amt')-(decimal)q.get('amt1'));
   }

Thanks.

Hi Frances,

You can not do that in a query. For that, you need to query them and then perform the operation on it. Like below:
 
for(AggregateResult q : [select Project__c, sum(Amount) AmountSum1sum(npe01__Amount_Outstanding__c)  AmountSum2 from Opportunity where (StageName = 'Complete - Won'or StageName = 'Agree Payment Schedule'  or StageName = 'Sign Contract' OR StageName = 'Pledged'or StageName = 'Funding approved') and Project__c != null and Project__c IN :ProjectIds group byProject__c]){

    Integer result = q.get('AmountSum1') - q.get('AmountSum2');

}
Let me know if it helps you out. And mark it as best.


Thanks
