Inner Join with nested select?

Here is my sql that works:

Select Tag_ID, Count(*) as TheCount from (tbn_Tags t INNER JOIN tbn_Files m ON t.Media_ID=m.Sha1 ) Where (Ext = 'mp3' OR Ext = 'wav' ) Group By Tag_ID ORDER BY TheCount desc,Tag_ID

Now i have another table called tbn_TagClicks and i want to inner join it on the Tag_ID column that i selected above with tbn_TagClicks.ChildTag column and also get the tbn_TagClicks.Clicks column selected as well

not sure what to write, i tried a few things and they failed.

so i tried soemthing liek this :

Select Tag_ID,TheCount,Clicks from (Select Tag_ID, Count(*) as TheCount from (tbn_Tags t INNER JOIN tbn_Files m ON t.Media_ID=m.Sha1 ) Where (Ext = 'mp3' OR Ext = 'wav' )   )    Inner join tbn_TagClicks On Tag_ID=ChildTag  Group By Tag_ID ORDER BY TheCount desc,Tag_ID

but it failed

Select Tag_ID,TheCount,Clicks from
(
Select Tag_ID, Count(*) as TheCount
from tbn_Tags t
INNER JOIN tbn_Files m ON t.Media_ID=m.Sha1
Where (Ext = 'mp3' OR Ext = 'wav' )  
) A    ---------- u missed the alias here
Inner join tbn_TagClicks On A.Tag_ID=ChildTag  
Group By Tag_ID
ORDER BY TheCount desc,Tag_ID

Inner join tbn_TagClicks On Tag_ID=ChildTag  
Group By Tag_ID
ORDER BY TheCount desc,Tag_ID


note: you should give all the tables used in the query a short alias name, and prefix all the column with the alias:


Select l.Tag_ID, l.TheCount, tc.Clicks from (
   Select t.Tag_ID, Count(*) as TheCount
   from (tbn_Tags t INNER JOIN tbn_Files m ON t.Media_ID=m.Sha1 )
   Where (m.Ext = 'mp3' OR m.Ext = 'wav' )  
   ) as l    -- << this is important
Inner join tbn_TagClicks tc On l.Tag_ID=tc.ChildTag  
Group By l.Tag_ID
ORDER BY l.TheCount desc, l.Tag_ID

Column 'tbn_Tags.Tag_ID' is invalid in the select list because it is not contained in either an aggregate function or the GROUP BY clause.

thats my error for :

Select Tag_ID,TheCount,Clicks from ( Select Tag_ID, Count(*) as TheCount from (tbn_Tags t INNER JOIN tbn_Files m ON t.Media_ID=m.Sha1 ) Where (Ext = 'mp3' OR Ext = 'wav' ) ) as g Inner Join tbn_TagClicks On g.Tag_Id=ChildTag Group By Tag_ID ORDER BY TheCount desc,Tag_ID

you missed the " GROUP BY " statemnet

Select Tag_ID,TheCount,Clicks from ( Select Tag_ID, Count(*) as TheCount from (tbn_Tags t INNER JOIN tbn_Files m ON t.Media_ID=m.Sha1 ) Where (Ext = 'mp3' OR Ext = 'wav' ) GROUP BY Tag_ID) as g Inner Join tbn_TagClicks On g.Tag_Id=ChildTag Group By Tag_ID ORDER BY TheCount desc,Tag_ID

ok so i must have a typeo somewhere cause i copied and pasted yours and it worked. So i have one more small question

if there is no tag_id to join to childtag then there is no row in the result for that combo, but would i change inner join to join or maybe outer join if i wanted a row in the result for the tag_id even if there was no childtag to match it up with?

I have more rows in my tbn_Tags table(100) then i do the tbn_TagClicks table(20) but i want 100 rows in my result.

replace the inner join with a LEFT OUTER JOIN
> Inner Join tbn_TagClicks On g.Tag_Id=ChildTag

LEFT OUTER JOIN tbn_TagClicks On g.Tag_Id=ChildTag
