How do I query a table and get the ranking of records based off of multiple ranked records?

I have a table that has several records of ranks. The ranking can be 0-5.

So my table is like so...

record_ID |  project_ID  |  ranking  |  date |

1. record ID is just Auto Incremented
2. project_ID is a random number and can have multiple records of the same Project_ID
3. ranking can be 0-5 (0 = no points, 5 = Highest points).
4. And the date

I need for the query to COMBINE the records with the same project_ID and ORDER each combined record by the AVERAGE ranking (5 being first).

I've written some basic/intermediate SQL queries but this one is giving me some trouble.

Thank you,

Brian

did you mean that you want one record for each project with average ranking ??

like
Project Id  ranking

then

Select Project_Id , Sum(ranking)/count(ranking) from Tablename
group by project_id

if not
give sampe data and show us what result you need

Sorry but writing it out actually made it more clear for directions. I'll remember to do this in the future sorry if it's way off from what I was originally asking.

SELECT project_ID, SUM(ranking), COUNT(1)*5
FROM tablename
WHERE ranking > 0
GROUP BY project_ID

Open in new window


since 0 would not count,
I add where ranking > 0

try this
Select Project_Id , Sum(ranking) as with_point ,(count(Project_Id) *5 ) as out_of_point  from Tablename
group by project_id

Correction in your result
