MS SQL: Group by day and count

Posted on 2007-10-16

Last Modified: 2008-05-27

I have the following query:
select   date_added,
      (select count(*) from redeem R where whisky_id = 1 and R.date_added = redeem.date_added) as [Item1],
      (select count(*) from redeem R where whisky_id = 2 and R.date_added = redeem.date_added) as [Item2],
      (select count(*) from redeem R where whisky_id = 6 and R.date_added = redeem.date_added) as [Item3]
from redeem
group by date_added

the data out is something like:

date_added          | Item1 | Item2 | Item3

2007-01-22 12:13.05 | 1     | 4     | 0
2007-01-22 12:15.05 | 0     | 9     | 4
2007-01-22 17:12.05 | 1     | 4     | 5
2007-01-26 00:14.05 | 0     | 1     | 4
2007-01-28 10:15.05 | 0     | 1     | 4

Now what I wanted to do was group the results by day. So the first 3 records would be combined because they are on the same day. How would I go about doing this?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

SELECT CONVERT(VARCHAR(10), date_added, 120) AS [DateAdded],
    SUM(CASE WHEN whiskey_id = 1 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS [Item1],
    SUM(CASE WHEN whiskey_id = 2 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS [Item2],
    SUM(CASE WHEN whiskey_id = 6 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS [Item3]
FROM redeem
WHERE whiskey_id IN (1, 2, 6)
GROUP BY CONVERT(VARCHAR(10), date_added, 120)
