Recommended Posts

the title if this is the best i could do i think because im lost in what i need to do ..

The main query left joins 5 tables

one of these tables may or may not have data in it (here inlies my issue)

this is the query..

SELECT `members`.`member_id`,
UNIX_TIMESTAMP(`members`.`last_online`) AS 'last_online_stamp',
DATE_FORMAT( DATE_ADD(`members`.`last_online`,INTERVAL 0 HOUR ),'%a %b %D,%l:%i %p' ) AS 'last_online_format',
IF( `members`.`note` IS NULL OR `members`.`note` = '',1,0 ) AS 'nisnull',
IF( `members`.`officer_note` IS NULL OR `members`.`officer_note` = '',1,0 ) AS 'onisnull',
`rep`.`name` AS 'repname',
IF( `rep`.`Standing` IS NULL OR `rep`.`Standing` = '',1,0 ) AS `repisnull`,
IF( `players`.`lifetimeHighestRank` IS NULL OR `players`.`lifetimeHighestRank` = '0',1,0 ) AS 'risnull',
IF( `players`.`hearth` IS NULL OR `players`.`hearth` = '',1,0 ) AS 'hisnull',
UNIX_TIMESTAMP( `players`.`dateupdatedutc`) AS 'last_update_stamp',
DATE_FORMAT( DATE_ADD(`players`.`dateupdatedutc`,INTERVAL 0 HOUR ),'%a %b %D,%l:%i %p' ) AS 'last_update_format',
IF( `players`.`dateupdatedutc` IS NULL OR `players`.`dateupdatedutc` = '',1,0 ) AS 'luisnull',
GROUP_CONCAT( DISTINCT CONCAT( `proftable`.`skill_name` ,'|',`proftable`.`skill_level` ) ORDER BY `proftable`.`skill_order`) as professions,
GROUP_CONCAT( DISTINCT CONCAT( `talenttable`.`build`,'|',`talenttable`.`tree` ,'|',`talenttable`.`pointsspent` ,'|',`talenttable`.`background` ) ORDER BY`talenttable`.`build`,`talenttable`.`order`) AS 'talents' 
FROM `roster_members` AS members LEFT JOIN `roster_players` AS players ON `members`.`member_id` = `players`.`member_id` 
LEFT JOIN `roster_skills` AS proftable ON `members`.`member_id` = `proftable`.`member_id` 
LEFT JOIN `roster_talenttree` AS talenttable ON `members`.`member_id` = `talenttable`.`member_id` 
LEFT JOIN `roster_addons_memberslist_alts` AS alts ON `members`.`member_id` = `alts`.`member_id` 
LEFT JOIN `roster_guild` AS guild ON `members`.`guild_id` = `guild`.`guild_id` 
LEFT JOIN `roster_reputation` AS rep ON `members`.`member_id` = `rep`.`member_id` 
WHERE (`members`.`guild_id` = "11" ) GROUP BY `members`.`member_id` 
ORDER BY IF(`members`.`member_id` = `alts`.`member_id`,1,0),`members`.`guild_rank` ASC,`members`.`level` DESC,`members`.`name` ASC LIMIT 0,75


i know its a lota code huh this displayes the proper settings but `rep` is selecting random info from the table if the user has any if not its null and no info is provided.


i need to select a specific collum value of `rep.`name` but doing so only shows the `members` with that data i want to show everyone else as well and have null values for them but display the info for the people that do


i hope this makes sence and someone can help me ..
