How would write a query against a MySql db that returns all userName records greater than one record?  I'm looking for duplicate records in the table.

I'm looking for any duplicated usernames in the table not just a single.

Thanks!

SELECT * FROM  members WHERE UserName  count < 1

OK, looking for "duplicates" will depend on what you consider to be a duplicate :)

But one very common technique is to use GROUP BY, HAVING and COUNT() like this:

select
    member_name
from members
GROUP BY
    member_name
HAVING
   COUNT(*) > 1
;

So, for the fields you want to check as a unique record (in bold) list those in BOTH the select and group by clauses
This is important! both must be the same.
