SQL lookup

I have a table with columns:
id, userid, atype, address

atype can only be 1 or 0

I need to do an SQL lookup to SELECT userid WHERE atype = 0 but ... here's the important bit... where there is ONLY one entry in the table for that userid

I tried and failed with this:

SELECT userid, atype
FROM tbladdress
GROUP BY userid, atype
HAVING count(userid)=1 and atype=0

Please help

thanks - testing this i get 2 or more rows in some cases (where userid has an entry atype=1 once or more than once in addition to 1 instance of atype=0. I need it where there's only 1 single entry in the table for a userid, and that it's atype=0

Active Protection takes the fight to cryptojacking

While there were several headline-grabbing ransomware attacks during in 2017, another big threat started appearing at the same time that didn’t get the same coverage – illicit cryptomining.

Hmm, you mean only one entry with atype = 0, and other rows possible:


SELECT userid, atype
FROM tbladdress
GROUP BY userid, atype
HAVING SUM(CASE WHEN atype = 0 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) = 1

SELECT userid, atype
FROM tbladdress
GROUP BY userid, atype
HAVING SUM(CASE WHEN atype = 0 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) = 1
     AND SUM(CASE WHEN COALESCE(atype, 1) <> 0 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) = 0

try this

select userid, atype from (
select count(userid) , atype , userid as cnt from tbladdress GROUP BY userid, atype
) as tab where cnt = 1;

Hi Scott,

Yep, it;s:
>> need it where there's only 1 single entry in the table for a userid, and that it's atype=0 <<
but your query returned userids that have more than 1 row in the database. In fact the first it returned has 2 rows, one with atype=0 and another with atype=1, there must be only one row in the database for a userid and atype=0. Thanks!

GROUP BY userid, atype

what is the result you are getting from above sql statement?
tobzzzAuthor Commented:
Group By in a statement requires Having clause too so it will throw an error
AnuroopsunddCommented:
SELECT userid, atype
FROM tbladdress
GROUP BY userid, atype
HAVING (count(userid)=1) and atype=0

I'll re-post my very last post, which I'm pretty sure does what you need:


SELECT userid, atype
FROM tbladdress
GROUP BY userid, atype
HAVING SUM(CASE WHEN atype = 0 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) = 1
     AND SUM(CASE WHEN COALESCE(atype, 1) <> 0 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) = 0

Scott and Anuroopsundd,

Your queries bring back the exact same 1,262 results and as I said, unfortunately it's still picking up userid thats have 2 or more rows

so if I had this table:

id    |    userid    |    atype    |
1    |    33    |    0    |
2    |    42    |    0    |
3    |    33    |    1    |
4    |    67    |    1    |
5    |    33    |    1    |
6    |    88    |    0    |
7    |    91    |    0    |
8    |    91    |    1    |

I want this result:

userid    |    atype    |
      42    |     0       |
      88    |     0       |

Thanks

Are you using the LAST version of my query?  The one I re-posted above?
tobzzzAuthor Commented:
Yes sir, word-for-word except for adding 'ORDER BY userid' as a final line so i can see the results easily

D'OH, (somehow) just noticed "atype" was in the SELECT and GROUP BY, D'OH D'OH:


SELECT userid
FROM tbladdress
GROUP BY userid
HAVING SUM(CASE WHEN atype = 0 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) = 1
     AND SUM(CASE WHEN COALESCE(atype, 1) <> 0 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) = 0
ORDER BY userid
