Hi,

I have a requirement to count 3 different amounts of content in a selected field.

My logic has written a query as follows, but this doesn't work as expected. Please can anyone shed some light?

Thanks,

Marty
SELECT
	A.FriendlyName,
	A.Delegates,
	COUNT(DISTINCT rU.ID_User) AS Registered,
	COUNT(DISTINCT aU.ID_User) AS Accepted,
	COUNT(DISTINCT pU.ID_User) AS Partial
	FROM
	ATL_V2_Affiliates AS A
	Left Join ATL_Users AS rU ON rU.ID_Affiliate AND rU.RegStatus='Registered'
	Left Join ATL_Users AS aU ON aU.ID_Affiliate AND aU.RegStatus='Accepted'
	Left Join ATL_Users AS pU ON pU.ID_Affiliate AND pU.RegStatus='Partial'
	GROUP BY
	A.ID_Affiliate
	ORDER BY
	A.FriendlyName;

A.FriendlyName and A.Delegates should be also be included in the group by
and also do right joins

I added the two fields in the Group By, but that makes no difference.

Using Right Joins instead of Left Joins gives zero rows.

I would like every row from "A" and counts from the others if they contain rows.

Thanks,

This works as expected, but I would like to do it via joins instead.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Marty

I cannot believe I let out the =A.ID_Affiliate

Such a schoolboy error, I've been writing these queries for over a decade and couldn't see the wood for the trees.

Many thanks for pointing out my error.
