I don't quite understand how to make a Procedure as most of my processing takes place in my scripts. I have a set of 3 Queries that are almost identical that I would like to combine them to return a result set.

The queries are:

SELECT Date, Location, Sum(SubTotal) FROM data WHERE (Date between 20121211 AND 20121231) and Account_Number like '%cash%' group by Location, Date order by Date;

SELECT Date, Location, Sum(SubTotal) FROM data WHERE (Date between 20121211 AND 20121231) AND Account_Number not like '%cash%' group by Location, Date order by Date;

SELECT Date, Location, Sum(SubTotal) FROM data WHERE (Date between 20121211 AND 20121231) group by Location, Date order by Date;

The basics are that I would like to sum up the cash sales, charge sales and provide a total.

Thanks for all your help

The basics are that I would like to sum up the cash sales, charge sales and provide a total.

Is it much easier to Group By instead of Function/Procedure because it doesn't make sense what you are asking. Unless you can explain little more in detail it would be much clearer.

So far this is what I can come up with so far:

SELECT Date, Location, Sum(SubTotal)
FROM data
WHERE (Date between 20121211 AND 20121231) 
AND (Account_Number like '%cash%' OR Account_Number not like '%cash%')
GROUP BY Location, 
ORDER BY Date;

If it was MS SQL I'd do it like this:

declare procedure dbo.sales (@startdate datetime, @enddate datetime) 
as 
begin 
    select Category, Date, Location, Amount from 
        (SELECT 1 as 'sortnum', 'Cash Sales' as 'Category', Date, Location, Sum(SubTotal) sa 'Amount' FROM data WHERE (Date between @startdate AND @enddate) and Account_Number like '%cash%' group by Location, Date 
        union all 
        SELECT 2, 'Charge Sales', Date, Location, Sum(SubTotal) FROM data WHERE (Date between @startdate AND @enddate) AND Account_Number not like '%cash%' group by Location, Date 
        union all 
        SELECT 3, 'Total' ,  Date, Location, Sum(SubTotal) FROM data WHERE (Date between @startdate AND @enddate) group by Location, Date ) a 
    order by Date, Location, sortnum 
end 

With my limited knowledge it should work with MySQL, with minor adjustments to the syntax.
