Need a sql placeholder in an outer select

I have the below code and it works and does exactly what I am trying to accomplish which is to display by day, hour and 15 minute interval for each hour of the day a count for each interval.  What I need is to build in a placeholder and I don't know how.
For example below I have the first 3 hours of a 24 hour period on day 1
1      0      15      13
1      0      30      12
1      0      45      5
1      0      59      12
1      1      15      7
1      1      30      6
1      1      45      7
1      1      59      8
1      2      15      11
1      2      30      8


If there is nothing to count for hour 2 on the interval  45 or 59 how do I insert a 0 instead so that I don't have to manually add them to the spreadsheet when I import?

yuching,

That did not work.  Below is an example of what I got when it ran.

1      0      30      3
1      0      45      2

This is day 1 hour 0 and you can see it skipped over the 15 minute interval and 59 minute interval.  There were no new customers in that timeframe understood but for every instance like that I want a zero result returned.  In additional ideally I would like to fill in zeros even if 1 full hour passed and there were no new customers.

try this...

should be more efficient too since you don't need to query yourtable 4 times, just once is enough.
  SELECT TO_NUMBER(TO_CHAR(quarterhour, 'dd')) day,

         TO_NUMBER(TO_CHAR(quarterhour, 'hh24')) hour,

         CASE

             WHEN TO_NUMBER(TO_CHAR(quarterhour, 'mi')) < 15 THEN 0

             WHEN TO_NUMBER(TO_CHAR(quarterhour, 'mi')) < 30 THEN 15

             WHEN TO_NUMBER(TO_CHAR(quarterhour, 'mi')) < 45 THEN 30

             ELSE 45

         END

             minute,

         nvl(mycount,0) mycount

    FROM (  SELECT CASE

                       WHEN TO_NUMBER(TO_CHAR(mydate, 'mi')) < 15
