detailed data from records returned from a GROUP BY query

Hi experts,

I need to get detailed record level data from records returned from a GROUP BY query.

In other words, get the minimum team_code values from each date, and then from those, get the opposition and kickoff values. I tried the attached code without success, but hopefully it will illustrate what I'm trying to do.

Any help much appreciated.  Oh, and this will be a MySQL query.

Cheers,  Col
SELECT fr_match_date, min(fr_team_code),
       ( SELECT fr_opposition, fr_kickoff
         FROM  fixtures_results XY
         WHERE XY.fr_match_date = AB.fr_match_date
         AND XY.fr_team_code = AB.fr_team_code
        ) 
 FROM fixtures_results AB
 WHERE fr_season_start = 2008
 AND fr_home_away = 'H'
 AND fr_team_code not in ('S', 'V', 'Y')
 GROUP BY fr_match_date
 ORDER BY fr_match_date, fr_team_code

Hi,

umm.... I can't understand your data structure but....

direct method:

SELECT fr_match_date, min(fr_team_code),
       ( SELECT fr_opposition
         FROM  fixtures_results XY
         WHERE XY.fr_match_date = AB.fr_match_date
         AND XY.fr_team_code = AB.fr_team_code
        ) ,
       ( SELECT fr_kickoff
         FROM  fixtures_results XY
         WHERE XY.fr_match_date = AB.fr_match_date
         AND XY.fr_team_code = AB.fr_team_code
        )
FROM ...

with intermediate table

SELECT DISTINCT -- are needed I suppuse that you have many rows here
      fr_match_date, fr_team_code, fr_opposition, fr_kickoff
FROM fixtures_results

use this select into CROSS or insert on a variable table, ....

Good luck!

Brilliant - that explains the error message - operand should contain 1 column.   The points are yours.

Would there be a different solution in Oracle SQL?  I used to use that and this style isn't familiar to me.

or you can use a derived table to get min team code, and then get the record from there

SELECT fr_opposition, fr_kickoff
         FROM  fixtures_results XY,
                                          (
                                          SELECT fr_match_date, min(fr_team_code),
                                           FROM fixtures_results AB
                                           WHERE fr_season_start = 2008
                                           AND fr_home_away = 'H'
                                           AND fr_team_code not in ('S', 'V', 'Y')
                                           GROUP BY fr_match_date
                                           ORDER BY fr_match_date, fr_team_code
                                          ) BB
     WHERE XY.fr_match_date = BB.fr_match_date
     AND XY.fr_team_code = BB.fr_team_code

fixed typos, and this one works in oracle too

SELECT fr_opposition, fr_kickoff
         FROM  fixtures_results XY,
                                          (
                                          SELECT fr_match_date, min(fr_team_code) as min_fr_team_code
                                           FROM fixtures_results AB
                                           WHERE fr_season_start = 2008
                                           AND fr_home_away = 'H'
                                           AND fr_team_code not in ('S', 'V', 'Y')
                                           GROUP BY fr_match_date
                                           ORDER BY fr_match_date
                                          ) BB
     WHERE XY.fr_match_date = BB.fr_match_date
     AND XY.fr_team_code = BB.min_fr_team_code
     ;

Yes Colinspurs,

Jamesgu had put a correct solutions (if you delete the order by sentence), but is a concrete case of my general proposition

"use this select into CROSS or insert on a variable table, ...."

Thank's and Good luck!
