MySQL Query - Maximum Frequency

Hi all,

I have a project with a table that contains information of various car models. The data schema is:

Table Name: CarModelTbl
Four fields:
sDate [date]
Model [varchar(50)]
EngineSize [varchar(50)]
Colour [varchar(50)]

The table currently only contains 7 records as displayed below:

2010-07-24, Honda,1.6,Red
2010-07-24,Ford,1.6,Green
2010-07-24,Toyota,1.6,Blue

2010-07-25,Audi,3.2,Red
2010-07-25,BMW,1.8,Green
2010-07-25,Toyota,1.4,Blue
2010-07-25,VW,1.4,Blue

I currently work out the Maximum frequency for a model which occurred the most for July 2010 and this is 2. This is calculated with  the query below:

SELECT Max(A.no_count) FROM (SELECT COUNT(*) as no_count FROM CarModelTbl WHERE sDATE >= "2010-07-24" AND sDATE <="2010-07-25" Group by Model HAVING ( COUNT('Model ') > 0)) as A;

The above query works as expected - But now I have a requirement to also display the model which occurred the most and in this case it would Toyota.

Any ideas how to update the query....

Thanks in advance.

It should be like this
select countmodel.cc, carmodel.model
(
SELECT Max(A.no_count)  cc FROM (SELECT COUNT(*) as no_count FROM CarModelTbl WHERE sDATE >= "2010-07-24" AND sDATE <="2010-07-25" Group by Model HAVING ( COUNT('Model ') > 0)) as A;
) countmodel
left outer join
(
SELECT model, COUNT(*) as no_count FROM CarModelTbl WHERE sDATE >= "2010-07-24" AND sDATE <="2010-07-25" Group by Model HAVING ( COUNT('Model ') > 0)
)   carmodel
on  countmodel.cc=carmodel.no_count

A correction: 
select countmodel.cc, carmodel.model
from
(

SELECT Max(A.no_count)  cc FROM (SELECT COUNT(*) as no_count FROM CarModelTbl WHERE sDATE >= "2010-07-24" AND sDATE <="2010-07-25" Group by Model HAVING ( COUNT('Model ') > 0)) as A;

) countmodel

left outer join

(

SELECT model, COUNT(*) as no_count FROM CarModelTbl WHERE sDATE >= "2010-07-24" AND sDATE <="2010-07-25" Group by Model HAVING ( COUNT('Model ') > 0)

)   carmodel

on  countmodel.cc=carmodel.no_count

Hi georgekl

Thanks the response - I've tested your solution and it worked as expected thank you.

All I did was to remove the closing statement i.e. ';' and it worked illustrated below is the solution iimplemented.

select countmodel.cc, carmodel.model

from
(

SELECT Max(A.no_count)  cc FROM (SELECT COUNT(*) as no_count FROM ptTest.pt_test WHERE sDATE >= "2010-07-24" AND sDATE <="2010-07-25" Group by Model HAVING ( COUNT('Model ') > 0)) as A

) countmodel

left outer join

(

SELECT model, COUNT(*) as no_count FROM ptTest.pt_test WHERE sDATE >= "2010-07-24" AND sDATE <="2010-07-25" Group by Model HAVING ( COUNT('Model ') > 0)

)   carmodel

on  countmodel.cc=carmodel.no_count;
