There are 2 tables - Dept(DeptId,DeptName) and Emp(EmpId,EmpName,DeptId).
What will be the query for retrieving all DeptNames and the no of employees in that dept ?

For Oracle you can use this query:

select d.deptname, count(*) as num_of_emps
from d.dept, e.emp
where d.deptid = e.deptid
group by d.deptname;

or in case some departments don't have employees (?)

select d.deptname, count(*) as num_of_emps
from d.dept, e.emp
where d.deptid = e.deptid (+)
group by d.deptname;

Try this

select deptname , count(empid )
from dept d, emp e
where d.deptid = e.deptid
group by  deptname

Ubasche,

All of the above should work. But, just to help -- there's more than one way to skin sql, I mean a cat.

Try this:

SELECT     d.DeptName, Count (d.EmpId) as TotEmployeeInDepartment
FROM       Dept d
                INNER JOIN Emp e ON d.DeptId = e.DeptId
GROUP BY d.DeptName
0

select Dept.DeptName, Count(Emp.EmpID) as NumberOfEmployees
FROM Dept INNER JOIN Emp on Dept.DeptID = Emp.DeptID
ORDER BY Dept.DeptName

In order to make sure you get ALL departments, even if they don't have employees, change the join to a LEFT OUTER...

select Dept.DeptName,
         Count(Emp.EmpID) as NumberOfEmployees
FROM Dept LEFT OUTER JOIN Emp on Dept.DeptID = Emp.DeptID
ORDER BY Dept.DeptName
