SQL Grouping with Zero Value

I am attempting to sum up the number of parts on hand for given groups in the OrgTble column. The query below is working correctly, but it is not showing groups that have zero items in stock.

I would like for it to show something similar to the table below (It would not currently show the Shelf C 0).

Shelf A   5
Shelf B 10
Shelf C 0

How can I get the query below to show groups that do not currently have items in stock?

SELECT OrgTable, SUM(QtyOnHand) AS Quantity FROM All_Assets WHERE
(PartNumber = '015533913') GROUP BY OrgTable

Are you sure 'Shelf C' is in 'All_Assets ' table for PartNumber = '015533913' ?

Yes, this is a table with shelf locations of parts. If I enter a part number, I want it to return me all of the shelf locations and the number of parts in that location.

When we use GROUP BY OrgTable , the query should show distinct OrgTable data, if present in that table.
If the first column 'OrgTable' has some master table, then you can use JOIN and make this work

Currently, if there is zero parts in the shelf location, it just does not display the shelf location.

Change the query as follows -

SELECT OrgTable, SUM(CASE WHEN PartNumber = '015533913' THEN QtyOnHand ELSE 0 END) AS Quantity
FROM All_Assets
GROUP BY OrgTable

But a warning, this will return 0 for all OrgTable values regardeless of whether they stock the relevant partnumber or not.
