I bet there is many topics from this same topic but couldn't find any help.

So I hava a table of assignments which has an id and a group_id and I have a group table which has an id, parent_id.

I want to show the total count of assignment grouped by parent and child, so that the parent group counts in also the childs assignments.

So if a have there is two groups g1 with id=1 and g2 with id=2 and parent_id=1 so g2 a child of the g1. In assignments a have one assignment with group_id=2

My problem is to get the sql for showing only g1 with the total count of assignmets to it and its childs. So the count for g1 is 1.

I've tried all kinds of joins but can't get it right.

Hope you understand what i ment and can help me
