Data Good SQL Forum

Hey all,

I'm trying to locate a good sql forum - similar in nature to this, where I can can get some quick responses to questions I have.

I've tried a few but they are either no longer running - or have one visitor every month.... just wanting to see if anyone uses a forum that is of the same calibre as this one....

Or (not particularly appropriate for this forum) if there is a SQL guru in here that can answer a distinct counting question for me....Smilie

Alrighty then....I have a table that contains a number of columns.

I want to count the number of instances of each distinct entry in one column.


Table has a request_status column - which can have one of 5 states.... approved, rejected, processed ....

I want to count the number of approved and the number of rejected etc. I don't want to do this manually as with 5 it's okay - but I want the syntax for other queries where there are hundreds of states .....

I don't know what flavor of SQL that you are using, but the SQL Server listserv is quite active and generally has a pretty good response base.
