BOOL_AND function - Amazon Redshift

BOOL_AND function

The BOOL_AND function operates on a single Boolean or integer column or expression. This function applies similar logic to the BIT_AND and BIT_OR functions. For this function, the return type is a Boolean value (true or false).

If all values in a set are true, the BOOL_AND function returns true (t). If any value is false, the function returns false (f).


BOOL_AND ( [DISTINCT | ALL] expression )



The target column or expression that the function operates on. This expression must have a BOOLEAN or integer data type. The return type of the function is BOOLEAN.


With the argument DISTINCT, the function eliminates all duplicate values for the specified expression before calculating the result. With the argument ALL, the function retains all duplicate values. ALL is the default. For more information, see DISTINCT support for bit-wise aggregations.


You can use the Boolean functions against either Boolean expressions or integer expressions. For example, the following query return results from the standard USERS table in the TICKIT database, which has several Boolean columns.

The BOOL_AND function returns false for all five rows. Not all users in each of those states likes sports.

select state, bool_and(likesports) from users group by state order by state limit 5; state | bool_and ------+--------- AB | f AK | f AL | f AZ | f BC | f (5 rows)
