Product Category Counts in Oracle Table
Posted on 2007-04-10
I'm looking for the total orders with a specific category code. I have a Order detail table which has Order ID and Product Category field (Category CD= Field Name). In category CD field I have all categories including discaount code, and others products cat. What I like to do is get the counts of a specific product category e.g. the Category CD field has
'BK' = Book
'MG' = Magazine
'NSP' = Newspaper
'DISC' = Discount
'TAX' = Taxes
How can I get total orders for MG only not including all possible product combinations?
This must be done in Oracle - SQL or PL/SQL which ever is easier.
