Hello there!

With this query:

select doc_total as total, user_name as waiter_name from docs, getuti where DATE(date) = '2015-02-24' and user = user_number 

Open in new window

I get a long list of results with one column "total" and the other "waiter_name" like this little example:

total      waiter_name
8.25        SARAH
8.25       JOHN
2.7         JOHN
2.7         SARAH
19.65      SARAH

I would like to get each waiter's total...

Can I do it in mysql?
