SQL select in Access db. Trouble with a COUNT(*).

Hi all,

Trying to get this to work. I make a simple select from a table called 'SH_Products' and for each product I want a numberic value for the number of images that product has within another table called 'SH_ProdGals'.

The Join happens on:

SH_Products.Product_ID = SH_ProdGals.ProdGals_ProdID

I have this sort of thing working on SQL. However, I now need to replicate it and get it going on Access too.

Kind regards

strSQL = "SELECT SH_Products.Product_ID, "&_
"SH_Products.Product_ID, "&_
"SH_Products.Product_Name, "&_
"SH_Products.Product_Code, "&_
"SH_Products.Product_IconPic, "&_
"SH_Products.Product_ExMedia1, "&_
"SH_Products.Product_ExMedia2, "&_
"SH_Products.Product_ExMedia3, "&_
"SH_Products.Product_ExMedia4, "&_
"SH_Products.Product_Active, "&_
"SH_ProdGals.NumberOfImages "&_
"FROM SH_Products left outer join (select SH_ProdGals.ProdGals_PicID, COUNT(*) as NumberOfImages from  SH_ProdGals group by SH_ProdGals.ProdGals_PicID) SH_ProdGals on SH_Products.Product_ID = SH_ProdGals.ProdGals_ProdID WHERE SH_Products.Product_SubSiteID = " & Session("Subsite_ID") & " Order By SH_Products.Product_ID;"
Set rsData = MyConn.Execute(strSQL)
If Not rsData.EOF Then
ArrProds = rsData.GetRows()
End If
rsData.Close

Try this -
strSQL = "SELECT SH_Products.Product_ID, "&_
"SH_Products.Product_ID, "&_
"SH_Products.Product_Name, "&_
"SH_Products.Product_Code, "&_
"SH_Products.Product_IconPic, "&_
"SH_Products.Product_ExMedia1, "&_
"SH_Products.Product_ExMedia2, "&_
"SH_Products.Product_ExMedia3, "&_
"SH_Products.Product_ExMedia4, "&_
"SH_Products.Product_Active, "&_
"SH_ProdGals.NumberOfImages = (SELECT COUNT(*) FROM SH_ProdGals AS PG WHERE PG.ProdGals_ProdID = SP.Product_ID) "&_
"FROM SH_Products AS SP
"WHERE SH_Products.Product_SubSiteID = " & Session("Subsite_ID") & " Order By SH_Products.Product_ID;"

Hi reb73,

I have reduced the statement to only include teh stuff we need to get going. The rest I can put back later.

I aliased the table SH_Products as SP, but missed out on using the alias consistently.. Try -
strSQL = "SELECT SP.Product_ID, "&_
"SH_ProdGals.NumberOfImages = (SELECT COUNT(*) FROM SH_ProdGals AS PG WHERE PG.ProdGals_ProdID = SP.Product_ID) "&_
"FROM SH_Products AS SP "&_
"WHERE SP.Product_SubSiteID = " & Session("Subsite_ID") & " Order By SP.Product_ID;"
 
Set rsData = MyConn.Execute(strSQL) '<<<<< This is line xxx ------------------------------------------------------
If Not rsData.EOF Then
ArrProds = rsData.GetRows()
End If
rsData.Close

SELECT - FROM - JOIN - ON - WHERE - GROUP BY - HAVING - ORDER BY

The clauses must appear in this order.

Hi all,

Sorry still getting the above error. I have reduced the statement even further. I removed the WHERE and ORDER BY so as to keep just the stuff we need for now.:

--------------------------------------------------------

strSQL = "SELECT SP.Product_ID, SH_ProdGals.NumberOfImages = (SELECT COUNT(*) FROM SH_ProdGals AS PG WHERE PG.ProdGals_ProdID = SP.Product_ID) FROM SH_Products AS SP;"

--------------------------------------------------------

Kind regards

Perhaps try this:  (I have also removed the subselect so as to make it O(N) as opposed to O(N^2).


SELECT 	SP.Product_ID, PG.NumImages
FROM 	SH_Products AS SP
	LEFT JOIN 
	(SELECT	PG.ProdGals_ProdID, COUNT(*) As NumImages
	FROM 	SH_ProdGals AS PG 
	GROUP 	BY PG.ProdGals_ProdID) As PG
	ON 	SP.Product_ID = PG.ProdGals_ProdID

Also, if you wanted to keep the subselect, I think you need to change it thus:
strSQL = "SELECT SP.Product_ID, (SELECT COUNT(*) FROM SH_ProdGals AS PG WHERE PG.ProdGals_ProdID = SP.Product_ID) As NumberOfImages FROM SH_Products AS SP;"
