I am trying to set up the following..
Q1 - Displaying the names of the stars and directors who have worked together..

I have come up with the following...

select star.starname, director.dirname  from director, star, movstar, movie where star.starnub = movstar.starnub and movie.dirnub = director.dirnub;


I get the list but i get many duplicates of actors and directors as well as a few are incorrect.

Q-2 Listing the movie type and number of tapes for each type in the database. (No-progress yet)

Q-3 For each movie, list mow many times it has been rented. (Will attempt soon)

Any help would be awesome i am very new to sql and databases so i was trying to see what i was doing wrong and or if there are easier ways to set this up.. Thanks!

For First query ,

You violated One of the basic Concept of RDMS join . ie, for getting non redundant information from Join of n tables there should be n-1 cross joins.

Try onve again Smile

For Q1:

   
  SELECT star.starname, director.dirname, movie.mvtitle
  FROM director, star, movstar, movie
 WHERE star.starnub = movstar.starnub
   AND movstar.mvnub = movie.mvnub
   AND movie.dirnub = director.dirnub;

Q1. You have 4 tables in from clause and only 2 join conditions -> one is missing

Q2. Try to find the query to list all of them (type and movie in the copy), then instead of displaying count them with the help of COUNT and GROUP BY

Q3. Same problem but other tables and use of SUM

Regards
Michel

SELECT d.dirname, s.starname
FROM DIRECTOR d, STAR s
WHERE s.starnub IN (SELECT ms.starnub FROM MOVSTAR ms
                    WHERE ms.mvnub IN (SELECT m.mvnub FROM MOVIE m
                                       WHERE m.dirnub = d.dirnub
                                      )
                   );




Im a bit confused on what the DIRECTOR d, STAR s are for haven't seen this yet. can you explain why your not using director.dirname and a shortened form of it or something?


Mine is printing 17, seems like there should be more if there are more movies?

Try distinct key word with Kiran's answer . That will the actual Star-Director Pair.


SELECT DIstinct star.starname, director.dirname --, movie.mvtitle
  FROM director, star, movstar, movie
 WHERE star.starnub = movstar.starnub
   AND movstar.mvnub = movie.mvnub
   AND movie.dirnub = director.dirnub;


'd' is the shortened form of director (Alias) and it is used for convenience. And thatquery doesn't look to give your required result.
