Hmm would it be possible to.

Clyatt: Is it my connection or sqlfiddle is terribly slow today?

Furutani: Last time I used it it was terribly slow

Levar: Salle, Bachinski: thanks for the help, much appreciated!

Clyatt: Ddg10: It is not precise because it groups on fname only. fname, lname is slightly better, but you should have some unique user_id there because names are not unique.

Campion: Rumery, I have a question, lets say I have a space delimited string of IDs in one column of a table, is it possible to count how many items there are and place that value in new column ?

Clyatt: Ddg10: With this table best primary key should be user_id, interest to avoid inserting same interest more than once

Dach: Https://

Kipling: And I would like to count the number of items in column architecture_acc

Gorelli: Reller: SELECT LENGHTcolumn – LENGTHREPLACEcolumn, ‘ ‘, ” + 1 AS items

Kendrick: So just using an auto generated id column as the key isn’t going to really do anything for duplicate entries. say for example two people with identical names have the same interes.

Clyatt: Ddg10:

Cradic: Boleware, error in SQL query 😛

Clyatt: Ddg10: Yes in this case auto_inc does not provide many benefits. You are unlikely to use it in joins either

Bachinski: Reller: simple spelling error

Clyatt: Ddg10: Even if you have PRIMARY KEYfname, lname, interest it is not enough because there could be two people with identical first and second name so better use some u_id

Fricano: Reller: the Niedzwiedzki checker bails out at the first thing it cannot understand, either something immediately before is incorrect, or you used a reserved word or its just plain bad Niedzwiedzki and you are not following the manual

Clyatt: Ddg10: In that case you don’t need to store fname and lname in this table

Velazco: I dont want to be rude or look like lazy, but I have totally no clue how to use that, but I guess I have to read and figure out something similar myself, anyway thanks for tip

Mei: So I could filter the data and select all the names, remove duplicates and ***ign a u_id

Clyatt: Ddg10: Having these in separate table like user will also help you generate rows for users with 0 interests

Bachinski: Reller: the first instance of the word LENGTH has a typo. fix the spelling

Bartlet: Bachinski, yeah but I guess I have to say which table/column

Tipple: I tried SELECT architecture_acc from architecture LENGTHcolumn – LENGTHREPLACEcolumn, ‘ ‘, ” + 1 AS items;

Bradley: Really blindly trying to figure that out

Misfeldt: The LENGTH bit needs to be before the FROM bit.

Bachinski: Reller: replace column with the actual column’s name

Quilantang: SELECT LENGTHarchitecture_acc – LENGTHetc. FROM architecture WHERE.

Bachinski: Reller: select lengthcolumns_actual_name .

Clyatt: Bachinski: As we all konw wehn fistr and lsat lteter of wodrs are in palce the txet is siltl prefelcty reabalde :

Girolamo: SELECT architecture_acc,LENGTHarchitecture_acc – LENGTHREPLACEarchitecture_acc, ‘ ‘, ” + 1 AS items from architecture; seems to work

Cirrincione: Reller:

Dmitriev: Hmm no median with mysql.

Foertsch: Guess I have to output data to see distribution

Barbaza: Http://

Hughey: This is super sweet

Hinckle: I’ve seen somebody draw pie charts in sql’s command line interface

Mersch: Http://

Bachinski: Reller: a good resource –

Fabroquez: My gf who uses sql daily is impressed by sql-pie-chart 😀

Ammirata: Hmm would it be possible to just combine each row which has the same name and add each interest together so that the interests column shows all 3 interests on the same row. that way an autogenerated id would be the same as a unique user id
