Table 1:

EmpID  PositionID  CompanyID
12          1                123
13          1                 123
14          2                  123
15          3                  123

table 2

PositionID     test1eligibility     test2eligibility      test3eligibility
1                      1                           1                           0
2                       1                           0                          0
3                       0                             0                         1

I want to know how many empID's in table1 are eligible for test1 (that is test1eligibility =1), how many are eligible for test2 and how many are eligible for test3.
so the result i want is:

companyID     test1eligibility     test2eligibility      test3eligibility
123                      3                       2                              1

can you please help with the SQL query?

SELECT
      t1.CompanyID
    , SUM(t2.test1eligibility) AS test1eligibility
    , SUM(t2.test2eligibility) AS test2eligibility
    , SUM(t2.test3eligibility) AS test3eligibility
FROM table1 t1
      INNER JOIN table2 t2
                  ON t1.PositionID = t2.PositionID
GROUP BY
      t1.CompanyID

Open in new window

{+ edit} nb: because you display zeros and not nulls in table2 don't use count(), better to use sum() in this situation

Brilliant idea!
I just had to change boolean to integer for SUM. Thank you.
