newbie here of QGIS here, I was trying to aggregate a feature from a CSV with no geometries. The query is very basic:

    SUM("POP_2012") AS POP_2012
FROM "municipalities-tuscany"

but I'm stuck and cannot make it work: if I go to Data Source Manager > Virtual Layer, fill the form and set Unique identifier column equal to PROV the resulting layer shows only 1 instance (instead of 10), like I filtered it. If I try using DB Manager > Virtual Layers and open the SQL Window, I run and correctly visualize the query, but when I try to Load as new layer, set Column with unique values equal to PROV and click Load nothing happens. If I set no Column with unique values get nothing in both cases.

  • Which version of QGIS are u using ? – snaileater Mar 11 '19 at 17:38

  • Did u solve your problem ? Are you able to share your file ? – snaileater Mar 13 '19 at 13:48

I think your unique identifier column is set on a wrong variable type (string ?) : it should be an integer ... Don't u have a specific numeric ID for your 'provinces' ?

    When you load a CSV into QGIS, it sometimes assumes every column is text. You can specify column type by creating a CSVT file, as explained here: anitagraser.com/2011/03/07/… – csk Mar 12 '19 at 21:12
