Hi There,

I am trying to work out this query in POSTGRESQL database.  I need to list all workers that have done more than 3 jobs. That part of query works fine. It lists all workers with more than 3 jobs in the 'job' table. The job table lists worker_id with every job that was done so I am simply counting the number of times worker_id occurs and then list only those that are listed more then 3 times. What I need now is to add a column that would give me a total number of jobs done by those workers as well.

So the result set would be something like:

John Smith 35
Bill Cosby 40
Dan White 4

SELECT person.first_name, person.surname
FROM person INNER JOIN job on (person.person_id = job.worker_id)
GROUP BY person.first_name, person.surname
HAVING COUNT(job.worker_id) > 3

Hi ,

Just add the column count(job.worker_id) in the select clause like so:

SELECT person.first_name, person.surname
FROM person INNER JOIN job on (person.person_id = job.worked_id)
GROUP BY person.first_name, person.surname
HAVING count(job.worked_id)>3

You'll get what u need.

Thanks guys. I actually had this already but I was getting errors. Then I realized that case was wrong (POSTGRESQL is case sensitive)!
Anyway. Thanks for the help.
