Proper SQL syntax to use with PHP?

Hi guys.. I'm after a bit of help if possible..

I've got a SQL query that querys a database using PHP..

PHP Code:
$week_one "SELECT COUNT(service_price) AS one FROM figures WHERE service_sku='$service_sku_queried' AND week='1' ORDER BY service_description ASC"
It is then formatted to output a table as follows (if you can imaginea table):

FULL SYSTEM RECOVERY______________________________3_______________1______4
SYSTEM RECASE____________________________________2________________0______2

(sorry for underscores.. forum wont allow me more than one space)

This goes on and on for every service.

Problem is ... I have refunds and sales. In the database it is either a regular positive number - or as a refund - a negative number.

Above for example has outputted 4 units for FULL SYSTEM RECOVERY ... but in my database there are 3 sales.. Three in week 1, and 1 in week 2.

My problem is... That one unit in Week 2 is a refund.. How can I make it output as negative number " - 1 " ??

Is there a function in COUNT at all?

I'm really confused!

If you have set a primary key + auto_increment over your figures table, it is unlikely possible to set a -1. In order to do this, you must not set auto_incrementation on your table to achieve this.
