In my database, I have a Photo class, that I use as a foreignkey to other classes. These are two examples of such.

class SubstancePointsLabel(ResultBase):   
    #: photo being labeled
    photo = models.ForeignKey(Photo, related_name='substance_points_labels')

class SubstancePoint(EmptyModelBase):   
    #: photo
    photo = models.ForeignKey(Photo, related_name='substance_points')

The only difference in these instances the ResultBase and EmptyModelBase but nothing in seems (to me) to be the cause.

class EmptyModelBase(models.Model):
    """ Base class of all models, with no fields """

    def get_entry_dict(self):
        return {'id':}

    def get_entry_attr(self):

        return 'data-model="%s/%s" data-id="%s"' % (
            ct.app_label, ct.model,

    def get_entry_id(self):
        ct = ContentType.objects.get_for_model(self)

For a Photo instance, I'm capable of accessing SubstancePointsLabel and SubstancePoint via the related name.

In : photo.substance_points_labels.count()
Out: 3

In : photo.substance_points.count()
Out: 9

I wish to filter Photo instances, on whether the related class exists, which I do as follows.

In : Photo.objects.filter(substance_exists_labels__exists=True).count()
Out: 335932

Now, as above, this works for some. For a few others, the query returns an error:

The classes are created the same way, and are queried the same way. What could the cause it's giving an error for some instances, and not for others?

Is there really something like "__exists" in field lookups in Django?? There's an easy way to do the same by using "__isnull". Instead of:


you could:

You can do it using exclude method and __isnull lookup.


Or you can use conditional expression

from django.db.models import When, Case, IntegerField

          substance_points__isnull=True, then=0

Above query will return count of photos that has substance_points


Alternatively, If you just want count of photos that has substance_points, you can also think of below approach.
