Hi team,

This query has me stumped.It should be easy, but i can't get it. The null line (ie when there is no match) is the tough bit. Forgive me for my simple query!

Table 1: Appointments
TYPE
Regular
Regular
Regular
Merch


Table 2: Plans
TYPE
Regular
Merch
Special


Result Needed
TYPE COUNT
Regular 3
Merch 1
Special 0

Use a LEFT OUTER JOIN, like shown below:
SELECT
	a.[Type],
	COUNT(b.[type]) AS [Count]
FROM
	Plans a
	LEFT JOIN Appointments b ON a.[type] = b.[type]
GROUP BY
	a.[type]
