I currently have two queries that separately show goals scored and appearances made by players in a football team but need to bring them together in one query so I can aggregate results against each other, as well as output records from both in one html table.

The two queries are

SELECT *,
COUNT(CASE games.competition WHEN 1 THEN 1 ELSE NULL END) AS lgegls,
COUNT(CASE games.competition WHEN 2 THEN 1 ELSE NULL END) AS facgls,
COUNT(CASE games.competition WHEN 3 THEN 1 ELSE NULL END) AS fatgls,
COUNT(CASE games.competition WHEN 4 THEN 1 ELSE NULL END) AS kscgls,
COUNT(CASE games.competition WHEN 5 THEN 1 ELSE NULL END) AS lgecgls,
COUNT(goals.goal_id) AS tgls
FROM goals, games 
INNER JOIN players ON goals.scorer = players.player_id
WHERE goals.match = games.match_id AND games.date BETWEEN '2010-07-01' AND '2011-06-31' AND games.competition <> 6
GROUP BY players.player_id

and

SELECT *,
COUNT(CASE WHEN games.competition = 1 AND appearances.type = 1 THEN 1 ELSE NULL END) AS lgest,
COUNT(CASE WHEN games.competition = 1 AND appearances.type = 2 THEN 1 ELSE NULL END) AS lgesub,
COUNT(CASE WHEN games.competition = 1 AND appearances.type = 3 THEN 1 ELSE NULL END) AS lgebench,
COUNT(CASE WHEN games.competition = 2 AND appearances.type = 1 THEN 1 ELSE NULL END) AS facst,
COUNT(CASE WHEN games.competition = 2 AND appearances.type = 2 THEN 1 ELSE NULL END) AS facsub,
COUNT(CASE WHEN games.competition = 2 AND appearances.type = 3 THEN 1 ELSE NULL END) AS facbench,
COUNT(CASE WHEN games.competition = 3 AND appearances.type = 1 THEN 1 ELSE NULL END) AS fatst,
COUNT(CASE WHEN games.competition = 3 AND appearances.type = 2 THEN 1 ELSE NULL END) AS fatsub,
COUNT(CASE WHEN games.competition = 3 AND appearances.type = 3 THEN 1 ELSE NULL END) AS fatbench,
COUNT(CASE WHEN games.competition = 4 AND appearances.type = 1 THEN 1 ELSE NULL END) AS kscst,
COUNT(CASE WHEN games.competition = 4 AND appearances.type = 2 THEN 1 ELSE NULL END) AS kscsub,
COUNT(CASE WHEN games.competition = 4 AND appearances.type = 3 THEN 1 ELSE NULL END) AS kscbench,
COUNT(CASE WHEN games.competition = 5 AND appearances.type = 1 THEN 1 ELSE NULL END) AS lcst,
COUNT(CASE WHEN games.competition = 5 AND appearances.type = 2 THEN 1 ELSE NULL END) AS lcsub,
COUNT(CASE WHEN games.competition = 5 AND appearances.type = 3 THEN 1 ELSE NULL END) AS lcbench,
COUNT(CASE WHEN appearances.type = 1 THEN 1 ELSE NULL END) AS tst,
COUNT(CASE WHEN appearances.type = 2 THEN 1 ELSE NULL END) AS tsub,
COUNT(CASE WHEN appearances.type = 3 THEN 1 ELSE NULL END) AS tbench,
SUM(CASE WHEN games.competition = 1 THEN appearances.off ELSE NULL END) - SUM(CASE WHEN games.competition = 1 THEN appearances.on ELSE NULL END) AS lgemins,
SUM(CASE WHEN games.competition = 2 THEN appearances.off ELSE NULL END) - SUM(CASE WHEN games.competition = 2 THEN appearances.on ELSE NULL END) AS facmins,
SUM(CASE WHEN games.competition = 3 THEN appearances.off ELSE NULL END) - SUM(CASE WHEN games.competition = 3 THEN appearances.on ELSE NULL END) AS fatmins,
SUM(CASE WHEN games.competition = 4 THEN appearances.off ELSE NULL END) - SUM(CASE WHEN games.competition = 4 THEN appearances.on ELSE NULL END) AS kscmins,
SUM(CASE WHEN games.competition = 5 THEN appearances.off ELSE NULL END) - SUM(CASE WHEN games.competition = 5 THEN appearances.on ELSE NULL END) AS lcmins,
SUM(appearances.off) - SUM(appearances.on) AS tmins
FROM appearances, games 
INNER JOIN players ON appearances.player = players.player_id
WHERE appearances.match = games.match_id AND games.date BETWEEN '2010-07-01' AND '2011-06-31' AND games.competition <> 6 AND players.player_id <> 1
GROUP BY players.player_id

I have placed the tables and some sample data, at the end of the post.

Both queries work fine on their own but I need to merge them to get the required results.

The one extra relationship that is not shown there, that would probably be required in the joint query is that 'goals.scorer = appearances.player', although that may not be relevant as they are both FK's to 'players.player_id'.

I want to out put all of the results from both queries in one html table. As I said, they both work perfectly individually but no matter how much I read up on joins, I cannot work out how to join them.

One other thing I would need to do is perform aggregates between what is currently the two queries, for example, SUM(tmins / tgls) but I would imagine that would be straightforward once everything is joined correctly.

I have been working on this for over a month at PHPFreaks and this is one of the very few times that one of my questions on there have not been solved so started to wonder if it was possible, but have seen similar things working elsewhere.

Any help, advice, suggestions or rewrites would be gratefully received.

Thanks in advance
Steve

An interesting problem. I cannot get it to work, though, because MySQL keeps telling me
"ERROR 1054 : Unknown column 'scorer' in 'on clause"
Does anyone else have this problem, too? And maybe a solution?
And kudos for Steve for supplying a complete test case as a starting point.

That is very puzzling as I have just tried it again myself and it runs with no errors!

If it helps, I do have both of these running online. The first one is GOALS QUERY and the second one, although a bit of a mess as it is only a test page, is APPEARANCES QUERY. What I hope to do is to merge elements from both those pages, plus aggregates between the data on both pages in one output. I will also want to use the same sort of thing on the individual player pages, an example of which is SHAUN WELFORD (the Table Header in that page has 'FULL' instead of 'STARTS' but it relates to the same data).
I have also put a full dump of the tables at TABLES DUMP as the ones I posted before might not have enough related records for the dates in the query.

Thanks for looking into this.
Steve

PS. Any idea how long it took me to realise that anything between code-tags capitalises reserved words (and 'round' for some reason) and that you can check you did put everything in the right case just by clicking 'Toggle Plain Text'????

Intermedia result: switch the table sequence in your join clauses from

FROM goals, games INNER JOIN players

to

FROM games, goals INNER JOIN players

and likewise

FROM appearances, games INNER JOIN players

to

FROM games, appearances INNER JOIN players

to get the query to run (on mysql 5.1.41-3ubuntu12.6).
But the queries have empty results. The players table is missing in your dump file. So I have to take back my "kudos" - test case not complete.
You could create views from both queries and join them on the player_id - or couldn't you?

Oops! That will teach me to post stuff late at night! I put the sample players table data in the original post but forgot it in the dump. The full players table is PLAYERS TABLE.

I will try the suggestions when I get home from work. I think you may be onto something with the VIEWS suggestion, although I have not really delved into that yet.

Thanks again

Firstly, apologies for not getting back sooner but I had to go to Scotland for a few days.

The VIEWS approach is so nearly there but there is just one little thing I cannot solve with it.

Using the code you posted, everything worked fine other than it would only show players who had scored goals (view2). It is pulling the right information for those players from view1 but it was not showing the players who did not appear in view2. The result can be seen HERE

I had a little play around and the closest I got to getting it right is

select * from view1 LEFT JOIN view2 ON (view1.player_id = view2.player_id)

This gives the right records for every player, but it only shows the names of the players in view2. An example is HERE. For those players who only appear in view1 it just shows the comma generated in the html

<td style="text-align:left"><a href="/content/1st_team/squad_details.php?recordID='.$row_gls['player_id']. '">'. $row_gls['surname']. ', '. $row_gls['firstname']. '</a></td>

and does not pass the player_id into the link.

I have tried a few variations on the joins but this is the closest I have come to getting it right. It may just be tired eyes making me miss something obvious so will have another play after work.

Thank you for getting me this close!

The problem is that both views contain the same column names for the same tables.
While the mysql command line interface handles this quite gracefully, the PHP interface identifies columns by column names only, without the table prefix. Therefore the player.* columns from view1 are merged with or overwritten by the player.* columns of view2.
This query illustrates the problem:

select view1.surname,view2.surname from view1 left join view2 on view1.player_id=view2.player_id;

You can overcome this problem by explicity assigning alias names to the columns which you want to pull.

select view1.player_id as theRealId, view1.surname as theRealSurname, view1.*, view2.* from view1 left join view2 on view1.player_id=view2.player_id;

Now you can refer to column theRealId and theRealSurname in your PHP query processing.

Absolutely perfect!

I tried one aggregate to see if it worked

SELECT view1.player_id as theRealId, view1.surname as theRealSurname, view1.firstname as theRealFirstname, [B]view1.lgemins/view2.lgegls as lminpg[/B], view1.*, view2.* FROM view1 LEFT JOIN view2 on view1.player_id=view2.player_id

and it works absolutely perfectly.

Immense thanks for the help. Not only has that sorted this problem, but now I have a better understanding of how views work, this opens a whole new set of possibilities within the site.

Thanks again

I'm glad to have been of help.
Yes, views can simplify complicated queries a lot. One drawback in MySQL is that they are stored in an very explicit form with all table prefixes and each column listed separately. Have a look at SHOW CREATE VIEW view1. If you add a column to one of the tables of the view, it won't show up in the view until you explicitly insert it. Therefore I find it good practice to store source code for views externally outside of MySQL for further editing.
