Building the Right Environment to Support AI, Machine Learning and Deep Learning

Using GROUP BY Clause

I am writing a Lottery Simulator, I have a database which contains seven fields, each field of each record contains a number from 1 to 49. I am looking for help writing the code that will scan each record in the database and return the six numbers that show up most frequently.

You will have to do each field individually, or you can combine the results. Here is a SQL statement that will get you the count of the number of each row shown in the database for a particular column:

SELECT field1, count(field1) 
FROM table
GROUP BY field1
That will get you a view of the numbers in the database, along with the number of times they appear in the database. You'll have to do that statement for each column (field1 - field6) and then combine the results.
