INNER JOIN COUNT

INNER JOIN COUNT

INNER JOIN COUNT

(OP)
Hi Guys,

Need a little bit of help. I am trying to create a blog like feature that has the number of comments for that blog displayed underneath.
The database (access) has two tables, listed below..
-------
blog
-------
id           
title       
message      
datewritten  
             

---------------
comments_blog
---------------
id
comment
datewritten
username
blogid

Im having problems creating the sql for this to work. I can get the count and the blog to work seperately but not together.

Heres what I have thus far..

CODE

sqlquery = "SELECT * FROM blog INNER JOIN(SELECT COUNT(*) FROM comments_blog WHERE blogID = blog.id) ON blog.id = comments_blog.blogid"
Please help me..

RE: INNER JOIN COUNT

I'd do it like this:

SELECT blog.*,
       (SELECT COUNT(*) FROM comments_blog WHERE blogID = blog.id)
FROM blog


Core SQL-99/2003 etc.

Thanks to both of you. The solutions work a treat.
