I've got a [Users] table and a [products] table.

There are 3 products that a user can subscribe to.  He must select at least 1, but can also select all 3.

I want to create a query that shows a list of all the active and inactive users for a selected product.
Any idea how I can create a simple query to do that?

Hi koossa,

For a simple report for a specified product, try ...

SELECT t1.Name, t1.Surname, CASE WHEN t2.ID IS NULL THEN 'Inactive' ELSE 'Active' END as Status
FROM Users as t1
LEFT JOIN Products as t2 ON t1.ID = t2.UserID AND t1.ProductName = 'specify your value here'

Can you define active and inactive as per your requirement?

you may want this:



 --for active
  select u.ID
  from [Users Table] as u 
  where exists (select userid from [product table] where userid=u.id)
  
  --for non-active
  select u.ID
  from [Users Table] as u 
  where not exists (select userid from [product table] where userid=u.id)

Hi lwadwell

Thank you, it's exactly what I want.
I also have a field name [Not confirmed] in the Users table that I don't want to show.
When I try to add it in my query it still shows all the records.

SELECT t1.Name, t1.Surname, CASE WHEN t2.ID IS NULL THEN 'Inactive' ELSE 'Active' END AS Status
FROM         Users AS t1 LEFT JOIN
                      ProductSubscriptions AS t2 ON t1.ID = t2.UserID AND t2.ProductID = 2 AND t1.[Not confirmed] = 0

what about this one?




  select u.ID,'active' as stat
  from [Users Table] as u 
  where exists (select userid from [product table] where userid=u.id)
  union
  select u.ID,'non-active' as stat
  from [Users Table] as u 
  where not exists (select userid from [product table] where userid=u.id)
