I have a table with 3 columns: SubmissionId, FieldName and FieldValue.

1) SubmissionId keeps ID submission.

2) FieldName stores field name of a form.

3) FieldValue stores field value of form field.

I have a form with 3 fields: name, email and status. I have four submissions, in total there are 12 entries: 3 per submission.

How do I get 3 records of a submission if the status field of that submission is equal to the string "open"?

It can? I start with this, but evidently only retrieves the record containing the "status" field. I need the other 2 fields.


    ->select('a.SubmissionId, a.DateSubmitted, a.status, b.SubmissionId, b.FieldName, b.FieldValue')
    ->from($db->quoteName('#__rsform_submissions', 'a'))
    ->join('INNER', $db->quoteName('#__rsform_submission_values', 'b') . ' ON (' . $db->quoteName('a.SubmissionId') . ' = ' . $db->quoteName('b.SubmissionId') . ')')
    ->where($db->quoteName('b.FieldName') . ' = \'status\' AND ' . $db->quoteName('b.FieldValue') . ' = \'open\'' );

  • @Loder, I updated the query, :) – George Berkeley Jul 22 '16 at 14:10
  • @GeorgeBerkeleyGeorge I think you are asking for a "pivot table" (current answers are not offering this technique). If you can confirm my suspicions by providing an sql export of 10 or 20 rows of data and your expected resultset from that data, I am confident that I can offer you a professional grade solution. Please help me to help you (which may help future researchers). – mickmackusa Jul 23 '18 at 12:37
  • @George I see that you have visited JSE just last month. Can you please improve your question so that I can supply an acceptable answer and this page can be resolved? – mickmackusa Jan 27 at 11:43

"If the submission is equal to open"

In which case, isn't this what you need?

    ->select(array('a.SubmissionId, a.DateSubmitted, a.status, b.SubmissionId, b.FieldName, b.FieldValue'))
    ->from($db->qn('#__rsform_submissions', 'a'))
    ->join('INNER', $db->qn('#__rsform_submission_values', 'b') . ' ON (' . $db->qn('a.SubmissionId') . ' = ' . $db->qn('b.SubmissionId') . ')')
    ->where($db->qn('b.FieldValue') . ' = ' . $db->qn('open'));

Here you are:

        ->leftJoin($db->qn('#__rsform_submission_values','sv').' ON '.$db->qn('sv.SubmissionId').' = '.$db->qn('s.SubmissionId').' AND '.$db->qn('sv.FieldName').' = '.$db->q('status'))
        ->leftJoin($db->qn('#__rsform_submission_values','nv').' ON '.$db->qn('nv.SubmissionId').' = '.$db->qn('s.SubmissionId').' AND '.$db->qn('nv.FieldName').' = '.$db->q('name'))
        ->leftJoin($db->qn('#__rsform_submission_values','ev').' ON '.$db->qn('ev.SubmissionId').' = '.$db->qn('s.SubmissionId').' AND '.$db->qn('ev.FieldName').' = '.$db->q('email'))
        ->where($db->qn('sv.FieldValue').' = '.$db->q('open'));

As output you'll have row with data you need. I believe the code is easy enough to figure out each line.
