I'm wondering if Rails fully supports grouping by multiple items? I have a situation where I'd like to get total amounts grouped by year, then month. Ideally, the result set would have the sum for the year and for each month right there, although I imagine having the sum for the year is probably a lot to ask. In any case, I'm using MySQL. This is the code I would expect to work: @totals = Purchase.sum(:amount, :group => "YEAR(updated_at), MONTH(updated_at)", :order => "updated_at DESC" ) The grouping appears to happen correctly. However, the result set is restricted to months: [["4", 37383437], ["3", 37506978], ["2", 84938573], ["1", 48391034], ["12", 48593943], ... ] I could make some assumptions, counting back the years in my reporting view. But I'd rather have all the actual data in one fell swoop. Any help?
