SELECT *, COUNT(*) AS Total FROM TableA
LEFT OUTER JOIN TableB ON TableA.EntryID = TableB.RelEntryID
GROUP BY TableA.EntryID

This query displays total how many entries match from TableB to TableA as "Total" and it works well but with one problem. If nothing matches, it gives 1 as "Total".

Any ideas?

it works v4.1+ because these versions supports subquery.
