Hi,
  If my table T1 is:
    ID    Name   group
    2     asdfas     mike
    3     klj;lkj       larry
    4     kljlj         mike


Is it possible to perform a single query that would do this:

Group Mike-Size=2
2   asdfas
4   kljlj

Group larry-Size=1
3 klj;lkj

??

try this...

<CFQUERY datasource="..." name="myquery">
      SELECT group, id, name
      FROM t1
      GROUP BY group, name, id
      ORDER BY group, name
</cfquery>
<CFOUTPUT query="myquery" group="group">
      <CFSET count = 0>
      <CFOUTPUT><CFSET count = count + 1></cfoutput>
      Group #group#-Size=#count#<BR>
      <CFOUTPUT>
      #id# #name#<BR>
      </cfoutput>
      <BR>
</cfoutput>

Hi SolverSurfer,

That makes two of us, have no idea what exactly you want the group by, looks like name, size.

dan: with all due respect sir, ur code has got two group by's, i don't know why u need the one extra group by .., u could avoid it in the cfquery and only use it in the cfoutput.

Other than that ur solution should rock ;-)

SolverSurfer : Just a general advice, avoid using keywords like Name, Group etc.. as field names...

Regards
Hart
