I'm trying to count the number of items in a given category or subcategory. MySQL

SELECT `cxs_cat_id`, `cxs_subcat_id`, `cat_name_e`, `subcat_name_e`, COUNT(item_id) AS `total_items`FROM `items`, `cat_x_subcat`, `categories`, `subcategories`WHERE `cxs_cat_id` = `cat_id` AND `cxs_subcat_id` = `subcat_id` AND `item_cxs_id` = `cxs_id`GROUP BY `cxs_cat_id`, `cxs_subcat_id`, `cat_name_e`, `subcat_name_e`ORDER BY `cat_name_e`

Output * General (1) o Electronics (1) * Vehicles (1) o Cars (1) o Trucks (1)I seem to only be getting 1 (in parenthesis) as the count. I have 3 items, 2 categories and 3 subcategories.

It looks like there is some row that don't match among tables. Try with outer joins. By the way, I can't get the sense of the "order by clause" at the end of "group by query"...regardsStefano De Boni
