Include the rows your JOIN forgot.

schema:scott
DROP TABLE customer;
DROP TABLE invoice;
 CREATE TABLE customer(
  id INTEGER,
  name VARCHAR(20));
INSERT INTO customer VALUES (1,'Betty');
INSERT INTO customer VALUES (2,'Robert');
INSERT INTO customer VALUES (3,'Janette');
CREATE TABLE invoice(
  invoiceno INTEGER,
  whn DATE,
  custid INTEGER,
  cost INTEGER );
INSERT INTO invoice VALUES (1,(2006,11,01),1,100);
INSERT INTO invoice VALUES (2,(2006,11,05),1,500);
INSERT INTO invoice VALUES (3,(2006,11,11),3,200);

The following query will only give two rows as the JOIN function automatically does not include rows with a count of 0.

SELECT name, COUNT(*)
FROM customer JOIN invoice ON (id=custid)
GROUP BY name

In order to obtain the rows where the count from the query is 0 a LEFT JOIN or a UNION can be used.

 SELECT name, COUNT(*)
 FROM customer LEFT JOIN invoice ON (id=custid)
