Sql Syntax Joins

Hello, I was wondering how I can modify the sql query I have below so that instead of setting @StatCode manully each time It would select all of the StatCodes in a table and complete the operation below for each one.

The table and field which contains the StatCode values is StatSource.StatCode.  I tried to do this myself but was unable to work through it. Hopefully after I see it done one more time i will be able to do it myself!


Thanks!
Declare @StatCode int
Set @StatCode = 8
select COUNT(VisitorID) As Clicks, COUNT(Distinct(VisitorID)) As UniqueVisitors
from outboundtraffic 
where VisitorID in(Select VisitorID from InboundTraffic where StatCode = @StatCode)

You should be able to get what you want with simple table joins.  Since VisitorID exists in outboundtraffic and inboundtraffic you can join those two tables, and since StatCode exists in both inboundtraffic and StatSource you can join those tables.  Try the query below.

select
  COUNT(ot.VisitorID) As Clicks,
  COUNT(Distinct(ot.VisitorID)) As UniqueVisitors
from
  outboundtraffic ot
 inner join
  InboundTraffic it
 on
  ot.VisitorID = it.VisitorID
 inner join
  StatSource ss
 on
  it.StatCode = ss.StatCode

select b.StatCode, COUNT(a.VisitorID) As Clicks, COUNT(Distinct(a.VisitorID)) As UniqueVisitors
from outboundtraffic a, InboundTraffic b, StatSource c
WHERE a.VisitorID = b.VisitorID
AND b.StatCode = c.StatCode
GROUP BY b.StatCode

assume table schema is

outboundtraffic
      VisitorID
      
InboundTraffic
      VisitorID
      StatCode
      
StatSource
      StatCode

select b.StatCode, COUNT(a.VisitorID) As Clicks, COUNT(Distinct(a.VisitorID)) As UniqueVisitors
from outboundtraffic a, InboundTraffic b, StatSource c
WHERE a.VisitorID = b.VisitorID
AND b.StatCode = c.StatCode
GROUP BY b.StatCode

Need to be a bit careful with joins and so on so that the record count does not exceed the outbound record count as a result of joining to additional tables.... So test the joins with a straight select as you were doing before...


select  SS.statcode, COUNT(OB.VisitorID) As Clicks, COUNT(Distinct(OB.VisitorID)) As UniqueVisitors
from outboundtraffic OB
inner join (Select VisitorID, statcode from InboundTraffic group by visitorid, statcode) as IB on IB.visitorID = OB.visitorID
inner join StatSource SS on SS.statcode = IB.statcode
group by SS.statcode
