I have a table that looks like this:

+----id-----+------mid------+-----sid------+------file-----+----encode-----+
        1                 A                                       file1                0
        2                 A                                       file2                1
        3                 A                                       file3                0
        4                                      B                  file4                0
        5                                      B                  file5                0


I'm trying to create a query that will list the number of files that have an encode value of 0, grouped by the mid or sid.  So, one query would give me this result


+------mid------+-----sid------+------files-----+
            A                                         2              
                                B                     2              

I don't know what the value the 'mid' or 'sid' columns will have.  I just want a count, grouped by the files' sid or mid values.

Not exactly sure how to do this.

Thanks,
marc

This one will do:
select mid, sid, count(encode) files from Yourtable group by mid, sid, encode having encode = 0;
0

I wouldn't group by "encode" at all and I'd use a where clause first.  I think this will work:

SELECT mid, sid, count(encode) AS files FROM Yourtable WHERE encode = 0 GROUP BY mid, sid;
0

If you want to return files=0:
select mid, sid, count(nullif(encode,0)) files
from tablename
group by mid, sid

Open in new window

if you don't need to return files=0:
select mid, sid, count(*) files
from tablename
where encode=0
group by mid, sid

Open in new window

If you have data like this, you will get an extra record for A,B combination with Thomasian's query. Is that what you are looking for?
mysql> select * from tab2;
+------+------+------+-------+--------+
| id   | mid  | sid  | file  | encode |
+------+------+------+-------+--------+
|    1 | A    | NULL | file1 |      0 |
|    2 | A    | NULL | file2 |      1 |
|    3 | A    | NULL | file3 |      0 |
|    4 | NULL | B    | file4 |      0 |
|    5 | NULL | B    | file5 |      0 |
|    5 | A    | NULL | file6 |      0 |
|    5 | A    | B    | file7 |      0 |
+------+------+------+-------+--------+
7 rows in set (0.00 sec)

mysql> select mid, sid, count(*) files
    ->   from tab2
    ->  where encode=0
    ->  group by mid, sid;
+------+------+-------+
| mid  | sid  | files |
+------+------+-------+
| NULL | B    |     2 |
| A    | NULL |     3 |
| A    | B    |     1 |
+------+------+-------+
3 rows in set (0.00 sec)
