  1. Table1.F1; F2;F3;..

    Table2.F1; ..

    How to count F1 in Table1 and count F1 in Table2
    F1 is a key column, and I cant use Distinct Count, just Count()

    I used Inner Join, but the result was not correct.
    F1 in Table1=F1 in Table2, but it cant be,
    There must be more F1-s in Table2

    Hello, Peter

    Try something like this:

    (SELECT COUNT(F1) FROM Table1) as Cnt1,
    (SELECT COUNT(F1) FROM Table2) as Cnt2

    If this doesn't work for you, please post DDL, sample data and
    expected results, as shown in:

    Also, I'd like to know why you can't use COUNT(DISTINCT...) ?

  3. Hey Razvan and thanks :)

    the query is like that

    from Table1
    inner join Table2
    on Table1.F1=Table2.F1

    I cant use DISTINCT because In Microsoft Query Excel worksheet there is any

    Then you should post your question in some other newsgroup, because
    the other solution I posted may not work in "Microsoft Query Excel"
    either, if it doesn't support subqueries (or derived tables). This
    newsgroup is related only to SQL Server.

  5. Thanks again
    But I hope. there must be a way to count them in SQL without DISTINCT :)
