Hello,

I want to get data from the database and into an array but cant figure out how to do it becasue it is a bit more complicated than i have done before.

SQL QUERY is
SELECT
      COUNT(transaction_amttobepaid) AS clicks,  
      SUM(transaction_amttobepaid) as comissions,
      transaction_dateoftransaction as dot,
      program_url AS program
      
FROM
      partners_transaction AS t,
      partners_joinpgm AS j,
      partners_merchant as m,
      partners_program AS p
WHERE
      transaction_joinpgmid = '$joinid'
  AND
        t.transaction_joinpgmid = j.joinpgm_id
  AND
    j.joinpgm_merchantid=m.merchant_id
 AND
    transaction_type = 'sale'
  AND  
    transaction_dateoftransaction
BETWEEN
       DATE( '$From' )
  AND  
       DATE( '$To' )
GROUP BY program_url, DATE( transaction_dateoftransaction )
ORDER BY transaction_dateoftransaction ASC";

Returns  the following data:
Clicks comissions dot             program
1       443       2006-06-25       company 1
1       443       2006-06-25       company 2
1       443       2006-06-25       company 3
1       443       2006-06-25       company 4
1       134       2006-07-02       company 1
1       134       2006-07-02       company 2
1       134       2006-07-02       company 3
1       134       2006-07-02       company 4
1       561       2006-07-04       company 1
1       561       2006-07-04       company 2
1       561       2006-07-04       company 3
1       561       2006-07-04       company 4
2       3730       2006-07-09       company 1
2       3730       2006-07-09       company 2
2       3730       2006-07-09       company 3
2       3730       2006-07-09       company 4


the clicks and the comissions are the sum of everything for the day and written out 3 times.  i need company 1's data at company 1 and company 2's data at company2.

I have had a look at your query and I think the reason the numbers are repeated is because there is no join between the program and the clicks and commissions - so for each program it is joined to all the others in a carteision join.

Although you have alised all your tables - when you have referred to your fields you have not exclusivley mentioned what table you have joined it to (i reccomend this should always be done) ie p.program_url.

It looks as though you have four tables, t, j, m and p - you have links to t, j and m - but I can not find a reference to p - if you can join that in on the program id then the query should work.

I tried to make it neater below - but without knowing your tables I can not create the missing link.

SELECT
     program_url AS program,
     date(transaction_dateoftransaction) as dot,
     COUNT(transaction_amttobepaid) AS clicks,  
     SUM(transaction_amttobepaid) as comission
FROM
     partners_transaction AS t,
     partners_joinpgm AS j,
     partners_merchant as m,
     partners_program AS p
WHERE
     transaction_joinpgmid = '$joinid'
  AND t.transaction_joinpgmid = j.joinpgm_id
  AND j.joinpgm_merchantid=m.merchant_id
  AND transaction_type = 'sale'
  AND transaction_dateoftransaction BETWEEN DATE( '$From' ) AND DATE( '$To' )
GROUP BY 1, 2
ORDER BY 2 ASC";

hi,

I thought this might be difficult without actually seeing the database.

And you are right that partners program is an afterthought.  the query was ment for another purpose but i have added partners program on and altered it a bit so that i can have the information in needed from partners_program.

I will try to find what join is missing form parnters_program.

thanks

I think that might have worked.

I used your query plus another line
SELECT
     program_url AS program,
     date(transaction_dateoftransaction) as dot,
     COUNT(transaction_amttobepaid) AS clicks,  
     SUM(transaction_amttobepaid) as comission
FROM
     partners_transaction AS t,
     partners_joinpgm AS j,
     partners_merchant as m,
     partners_program AS p
WHERE
     transaction_joinpgmid = 14
  AND t.transaction_joinpgmid = j.joinpgm_id
  AND j.joinpgm_merchantid=m.merchant_id
  AND j.joinpgm_programid=p.program_id
  AND transaction_type = 'sale'
  AND transaction_dateoftransaction BETWEEN DATE( '2006-06-01' ) AND DATE( '2006-07-09' )
GROUP BY 1, 2
ORDER BY 2 ASC

Ill go an test it now
