Retrieving Results based on distinct and grouped


I have a table with data that is broken down as follows:

countryCode, cityCode, storeCode, storeType, gridCodeX

I need to get a result, distinct, from this table so it totals up how many distinct gridCodeX's there are in a store within a city within a country

I have tried the following in around 100 itterations but to no avail!

Any help would be much appreciated.



select distinct countrycode,citycode,storecode,count(gridcodex) from block 
group by countrycode,citycode,storecode, gridCodeX
