Sql logic is killing me


#1

I know my thinking is sloppy.

I want to know how many clients currently in my facility are male…

My facilities_controller.rb

def list_fac
@placement_pages, @placements = paginate(
:placements,
:conditions => [“placements.facility_id = ?”,
params[:facility_id] ],
:include => [:facility, :client],
:order_by => 'facilities.name, clients.last_name,
:per_page => 14)
@facility = Facility.find(:first,
:conditions => [“id = ?”, params[:facility_id] ])
@beds_total = @facility.beds_m + @facility.beds_f + @facility.beds_a
@beds_m_cnt = Client.count_by_sql("select count(*) " +
" from clients where sex = ‘M’ ")
end

the @beds_m_cnt gives me count of all Male clients but I only need the
ones in @placements which I can’t seem to use in the @beds_m_cnt
assignment. Is this an issue of iteration that I don’t understand or
logic which I apparently don’t have?

Help?

Please ignore - I actually figured it out myself…I did have to
iterate.

Thanks
