    I've got a corker of a query that I'm trying to do. Not really sure whats the best way to go about this one but here's the description.


    I want to select the number of elements from table A where;

    the category field in table B = catx and has an id = idx which exists in table A as catid
    SEMrush

    Table A
    id
    catid

    Table B
    id
    category

    English to SQL:

    
    SELECT COUNT(*) 
    FROM tablea a, tableb b
    WHERE b.category = 'catx' 
        AND b.id = 'idx'
        AND a.catid = b.id
    Code (markup):
    should do the trick.
