Trying to issue a MySQL query that will retrieve a list of items and the number of each item
There are more columns than shown, but each Item will have entries in multiple rows.
query would return
Item1 , 3
Item2 , 2
Item3 , 1
Item4 , 2
Thanks in advance
My first attempt was
SELECT Item, COUNT(Item) FROM table ORDER by Item
But it only returned one row with the first Item encountered and a total of all row.
And SELECT DISTINCT Item, COUNT(Item) FROM table ORDER by Item
did the same
