Thread: mySQL query

    I have this problem - have mySQL database with table that collects information for users. This table should consist one record for every month in the year for every user. The problem is that some months are missing and I would like to know them.
    The users are too much - over 2500 and the time period is around 6 years - and my algorhytm seems to work too slow...
    The database is something like that

    | user_id | year | month | some other info |

    My aproach is folowing - for every user select all the records in this period and start looping the query result for every year 12 months - this is nested loop - it's too slow. And takes unbelivable long time to get the list of all missing months for all the users - ... think it's the database desig problem but unforutunately I can't change the design

    Do you have any idea how to resolve the problem?

    Make an array of years and months probably, or two seperate arrays, and cycle through them in the loop. An array oof months and an auto-incrementing year value would work, I think.
