I need to count the number of records within a table for multiple fields.  I am curretnly using count for each filed.  Is there a way to combine the count function?  

Select count(MARKET) from Table1

Select count(SYSTYPE) from Table1

select count(*) , count(1) from table1 ; -- this will give a count of all the records in the table

select count(market) , count(distinct market ), count(1)
from table1; -- this will give count excluding nulls and count of distinct values excluding nulls and count including nulls

Similary you can do it for other fields. If you need  the counts of the fields in one record output then you have to use as already given above.  If you need in a different format, then let us know and we can try to give you query.

Thanks
