Hi @andyavcons30c7 

You can try the below query to clear the data from category mapping table.

To make sure the results. 

select * from catalog_category_product where product_id not in (select entity_id from catalog_product_entity);

To delete the records. 

delete from catalog_category_product where product_id not in (select entity_id from catalog_product_entity);

 


If you are using prefix for table then change table name accordingly.

 

I hope it will help you in future as well!

Hi Andy

 

Have you cleared your cache and reindexed? 

 

Reindexing will most likely solve your issues as it will "recount" all of the products in the category and show the correct number.

and then with
