/************   SOLUTION 1    | Deepak Sharma     ****************/



SELECT p.partid,d.idate,  COUNT(o.idate) Counts FROM parts p cross join dates d left join orders1 o ON d.idate = o.idate and p.partid = o.partid
GROUP BY p.partid, d.idate ORDER BY 1


/************   SOLUTION 2    | Pawan Kumar Khowal     ****************/

SELECT p.partid, d.idate,COUNT(o.partid) OVER (PARTITION BY o.partid , o.idate ORDER BY (SELECT NULL)) counts FROM orders1 o
FULL OUTER JOIN Dates d CROSS JOIN parts p ON d.idate = o.idate AND p.partid = o.partid
ORDER BY p.partid
