Problems with a COUNT query

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how I can get a result set, containing a count of instances of variables in a column from one table. I am running MySQL version 3.x therefore can\'t use a UNION

 

SELECT COUNT( page_id ) AS index_count FROM mm_click_count WHERE page_id =\'index\'

 

gives me one of the values, I also need a count for page_id =\'forward\' for example ??

 

Thanks in advance

I managed to get a friends help on the SQL, he suggested the following:

 

SELECT COUNT( TABLE1.page_id ) AS index_count,

COUNT( TABLE2.page_id ) AS forward_count

FROM (SELECT * FROM mm_click_count WHERE page_id =\'index\' ) TABLE1,

(SELECT * FROM mm_click_count WHERE page_id =\'forward\' ) TABLE2

 

But MySQL doesn\'t seem to like this, can anyone help translating this into MySQL syntax?

eee... that would be nasty. do you have to run one query? can you not use a separate query for each count?
