Thanks for your reply!
Unfortunately, in both cases I get the error:
nmc=> SELECT dom_id, dom_name, COUNT(usr_dom_id) AS usr_count FROM
domains JOIN users ON (usr_dom_id=dom_id) HAVING COUNT (usr_dom_id) > 0
ORDER BY dom_name;
ERROR: syntax error at or near "COUNT" at character 25
LINE 1: SELECT dom_id, dom_name COUNT(usr_dom_id) AS usr_count FROM ...
I've been struggling with some deadlines, so for now I'm using just:
SELECT d.dom_id, d.dom_name FROM domains d WHERE (SELECT COUNT(*) FROM
users u WHERE u.usr_dom_id=d.dom_id) > 0 ORDER BY d.dom_name ASC;
Which gives me just the domains with at least one user under them,
but not the count. This is not ideal, and I will have to come back to it
next week. In the meantime, any idea what the GROUP BY error is? If not,
I'll read through the docs on 'GROUP'ing once I get this deadline out of
Thank you all for your help! I am sure I will have more question(s)
next week as soon as I can get back to this.
