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?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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.
