wondering how to select this


Recommended Posts

Hey guys i need to do a selection and not sure exactly how to do it.



I need to select x,y from planets where alliance is equal to the same and x and y is also equal to the same



so i have 15 rows for every x,y and im trying to see which set of 15 all share the same alliance name

ya but im comparing to a unpredetermind value for the where clause


i want to select the x,y where all the alliances equal the same , and the x and y are the same


so all 3 columns need to be the same duplicate


the alliance column is blank in the example

sounds confusing how im wording this lol



im only wanting to select x1 y1 if all the columns that are x1 y1 all have the same alliance name


but i need it to search each set of x and y so i cant just say


select x,y from planets where x = 1 and y = 1 and alliance = "reavers"

You can try this:


SELECT x, y, COUNT(*) AS CountRows, COUNT(DISTINCT alliance) AS CountAlliance
FROM planets
WHERE x = y
HAVING CountRows = CountAlliance 


Unfortunately, it is not going to give you the alliance value.


I may have misunderstood the requirements. This query returns rows where x = y. If you want any combination of x,y where all rows with that combination have the same alliance, you can take the WHERE clause out.


This query is going to scan the entire table. So, the more data you have, the slower it will be. (depending on indexes, etc).
