Hi all,

Is it possible to write a SELECT statement with just sub-selects? I don't need a FROM for a query I am writing.

E.g.

SELECT

(SELECT count(job.job_number)
FROM
job,
job_status_log
WHERE
job.job_number = job_status_log.job_number AND
job.job_log_number = job_status_log.job_log_number AND
job.job_status_flag = 'C' AND
job_status_log.status_code IN ('J020', 'J020', 'J040')) as Orders_Issued_Awaiting_Completion

So, why is this a nested select? Just select your count. Also, you should really use the LEFT JOIN, INNER JOIN syntax instead of joining in the where clause.

It is not possible for sub-query..

You have to write FROM clause to get sub-query...

For your query, no need of outer SELECT at all know.......?
