SQL join question

Recommended Posts

Hi

I have two tables, person and rating. person contains only an id while rating contains id, person_id, value, and movie_id.

Now what I want to do is to query for all the people who have rated two diffferent movies, say with id's 45 and 56.

I know how to do this for a single movie at a time with the following query:

SELECT person.id AS personId FROM person, rating WHERE person.id = rating.person_id AND rating.value = 5 AND rating.movie_id = 45.

But how do I in a single query search for people who have rated both movies 45 and 56 with the value 5?

Thanks!

[code]SELECT person.id AS personID FROM person INNER JOIN rating ON person.id=rating.person_id WHERE (rating.movie_id=45 OR rating.movie_id=56) AND rating.value=5[/code]

That will return multiple rows for one person, though... Off the top of my head I'm not quite sure how to combine those into just one row.  You might try changint the above WHERE clause to something like
[code]
EXISTS (SELECT COUNT(rating.person_id) WHERE (rating.movie_id=45 OR rating.movie_id=56) AND rating.value=5)[/code]

Something like that ought to do it, I think.

Or use an IN clause:

[code]
SELECT person.id AS personID FROM person INNER JOIN rating ON person.id=rating.person_id WHERE rating.movie_id IN ( 45, 56 ) AND rating.value=5
[/code]
