Hi

I have created a report on a database of patients who undergo a type of surgical procedure. I want to produce a list of the total number of procedures as well as another list that contains the number of some specific surgical procedures for every months. I have created the following code:

SELECT 
      DATE_FORMAT(date_of_treatment,  '%M %Y') as Date,
      COUNT(*)        
          as 'Number of aneurysms',
      (          
      SELECT COUNT(*)        
          FROM <?php echo $TABLE_PREFIX ?>aortic_aneurysm_disease 
          WHERE type_of_treatment='Open repair'
          ) as 'Number of open repairs'

FROM <?php echo $TABLE_PREFIX ?>aortic_aneurysm_disease 
GROUP BY Date
ORDER BY YEAR(date_of_treatment) DESC, MONTH(date_of_treatment) DESC

The first column contains the months, the second one the number of all cases for each month, but the third column contains the same total number of this specific surgical procedure ('Open repair') in all months, as seen below.

Any help would be more than welcome.

Kind regards

Andreas

Hi Andreas,

You should be able to achieve the desired result with this query:

SELECT 
      DATE_FORMAT(date_of_treatment,  '%M %Y') as Date,
      COUNT(*)        
          as 'Number of aneurysms',
      (          
      SELECT COUNT(*)        
          FROM <?php echo $TABLE_PREFIX ?>aortic_aneurysm_disease 
          WHERE type_of_treatment='Open repair'
          AND DATE_FORMAT(date_of_treatment,  '%M %Y') = Date
          ) as 'Number of open repairs'

FROM <?php echo $TABLE_PREFIX ?>aortic_aneurysm_disease 
GROUP BY Date
ORDER BY YEAR(date_of_treatment) DESC, MONTH(date_of_treatment) DESC

You were already very close, the only thing to know is that a subquery (like how you were selecting the "Open repair" records) doesn't "know" anything about the main query around it, so we need to add some context for it to select the correct records. In this case, we've added some matching on the formatted Date column.

Let me know if this fixes your issue, or if you have any other questions!
