>>Hi
>>
>>I've racked my brains and searched high and low.
>>I can't find the correct SQL SELECT statement to
>>count the number of records in a detail file and
>>show that count in my header record.
>>
>>The following SELECT statement gives me what I want
>>except I want to see zero in the count field if
>>there are no matching records in the detail file.
>>
>>select a.*, b.count from som.som022clsd as a, (select phonenum,
>>ordrnmbr, count(*) as count from som.sompfa21 group by phonenum,
>>ordrnmbr) as b where a.phonenum = b.phonenum and a.ordrnmbr =
>>b.ordrnmbr and a.conumber = '08' and a.workdate between 20010301
>>and 20013030
>>
>>Previously I wanted to sum a total in a detail file and show
>>it along the header fields but couldn't figure that out either.
>>Again I want to show zero in the sum field if there are no
>>matching records in the detail file.
>>
>>Can someone please point me in the right direction?
>>
>>Thanx, PLA
