Selecting only "finished" groups

Selecting only "finished" groups

Selecting only "finished" groups

OK, let's say that I have a table with 5 columns: ID, Name, ProviderId, Date, Amount

Now, let's say that I fill in 4 of the fields and the client has to fill in the fifth field (in this case, ProviderId)

Is there a nice way to ONLY select the Name (they will be grouped by name and date) for those that have filled in ProviderId for ALL records for a given day?


1, Joe, 123, 3/6/2017, 20
2, Joe, 234, 3/6/2017, 38
3, Joe, , 3/6/2017, 25
4, Jill, 156, 3/6/2017, 40
5, Jill, 321, 3/6/2017, 12 

So, I want to select Jill because she did her job and has given me the ProviderId for her transactions, but not Joe, because he did not finish all of them.


RE: Selecting only "finished" groups



SELECT Name, Date FROM yourtable GROUP BY Name, Date Having COUNT(*)=COUNT(ProviderID) 

Bye, Olaf.

RE: Selecting only "finished" groups

Hmm... Thx, I'll give it a shot

RE: Selecting only "finished" groups

I'm pretty sure it works, it just depends on the gaps being NULL values. An empty field is something COUNT(field) will count, too.

Bye, Olaf.
