Finally got it to work. I used 2 separate selects and a union. So one of the selects was like my original left outer joined select and then I unioned it with one that got the missed nulls from the other table.

Thanks for all the advice.

I was trying to do something like this, but couldn't get it to work. I am trying to follow the example you provided, but don't understand how id and oid relate to the example tables and which table is pr1 and pr2. Also my data has to match 2 constraints, not 1 (though I'm guessing that I could just add the other without changing anything else). And you have pr2.dato in the inner select but not the outer one. Is there a reason for that.

As of now I am thinking I will have to break this up into more than one statement.

also like this...


select id1,dato1, count(id2) from
(
select pr1.id as id1,pr1.dato as dato1,pr2.oid as id2,pr2.dato from pr1 right outer join pr2 on (pr1.id = pr2.oid)
) a group by id1,dato1
