Hi all, I would like to get the out of the count...

Select * from tickets where event_ID=20

Output:

2x USD
3x SGD
5x AUD

I Don't want the count, I just want the output.

This is so I can do less queries on the page, relating to currency conversion

Hi Ryan, sorry the mobile app isnt as good as the PC

So the Query I currently have is:

Select * from tickets where event_ID=20

Open in new window


its output is:
USD
USD
SGD
AUD
AUD
SGD
SGD
AUD
AUD
AUD

I know if I do a count of these, its
2x USD
3x SGD
5x AUD

but I do not want the count (the numeric number)

I want the output (3 different types)
USD
SGD
AUD

hope this makes more sense

i'm not too sure if I understand you, but think you can use a Group By clause here?

like:
Select currencyfield
from tickets
where event_ID=20
group by currencyfield
order by by currencyfield

Open in new window

see if this is what you want?

A much simpler way is to use the DISTINCT method, as follows:

Select DISTINCT CurrencyType from tickets where event_ID=20

Open in new window


* Obviously replace "CurrencyType" above with your actual column name. You can also add ORDER BY if needed to sort the results.
