Hello, Im having trouble writing a sql query.   I need to select l.LinkID, l.NavigateURL, l.ImageFile, l.Status and then also get a sum of rating field and a count of LinkID field where LinkID is equal to the one in the select statment.  My query below returns incorrect results for the count and sum fields.
 How can i fix this?

Thanks


SELECT l.LinkID, l.NavigateURL, l.ImageFile, l.Status, Sum(u.rating) As Rating, Count(o.LinkID) As Clicks

FROM LinkIndex l, UserRatings u, OutboundTraffic o

Where l.LinkID = u.LinkID and l.LinkID = o.LinkID

and l.Status In(0,1,2) and l.UserID = 1001 

Group By l.LinkID, l.NavigateURL, l.ImageFile, l.Status

What is the actual data and expected results.  My current understanding is you want the sum for the whole entire list and likewise for count.  If that is true something like this would work.
WITH linkCTE AS (

	SELECT l.LinkID, l.NavigateURL, l.ImageFile, l.Status

	FROM LinkIndex l, UserRatings u, OutboundTraffic o

	Where l.LinkID = u.LinkID and l.LinkID = o.LinkID

	and l.Status In(0,1,2) and l.UserID = 1001 

)

SELECT DISTINCT *

,  (SELECT Sum(u.rating) FROM linkCTE) As Rating

,  (SELECT Count(o.LinkID) FROM linkCTE) As Clicks

FROM linkCTE

Hello,

I need to select LinkIndex.LinkID, LinkIndex.NavigateURL, LinkIndex.ImageFile, LinkIndex.Status.
 
I also need to select sum(UserRatings.Rating) of all records from UserRatings Table where UserRatings.LinkID = LinkIndex.LinkID(The Link id in the select statment above)
I also need to select count(*) of all records from OutboundTraffic Table where OutboundTraffic .LinkID = LinkIndex.LinkID(The Link id in the select statment above)

I tried your query and i got error:
The multi-part identifier "u.rating" could not be bound.

Thanks!

	l.Status,

	u.rating AS Rating,

	o.Clicks AS Clicks

FROM LinkIndex l

		Select sum(rating) as Rating, LinkID

		from UserRatings 

		group by LinkID

	)

on l.LinkID = u.LinkID

inner join (

i miss alias after first inner join

so correct syntax should be
	

SELECT

	l.LinkID,

	l.NavigateURL,

	l.ImageFile,

	l.Status,

	u.rating AS Rating,

	o.Clicks AS Clicks

FROM LinkIndex l

inner join ( 

		Select sum(rating) as Rating, LinkID

		from UserRatings 

		group by LinkID

	) u

on l.LinkID = u.LinkID

inner join ( 

		Select count(LinkID) as Clicks, LinkID

		from OutboundTraffic

		group by LinkID

	) o

on l.LinkId = o.LinkId

In that case, simply use something like what was just suggested.

Cvijo123 your query looks good but there is one thing I still need.  When LinkId is not in OutboundLinks or UserRatings Table it does not return anything.  How can I select 0 for u.rating AS Rating or o.Clicks AS Clicks if they are not contained in the tables?

Thanks

this should do it
SELECT

        l.LinkID,

        l.NavigateURL,

        l.ImageFile,

        l.Status,

        isnull(u.rating,0) AS Rating,

        isnull(o.Clicks,0) AS Clicks

FROM LinkIndex l

left join ( 

                Select sum(rating) as Rating, LinkID

                from UserRatings 

                group by LinkID

        ) u

on l.LinkID = u.LinkID

left join ( 

                Select count(LinkID) as Clicks, LinkID

                from OutboundTraffic

                group by LinkID

        ) o

on l.LinkId = o.LinkId
