Need to count values when a column contains 2 possible values. Stored Procedure

I have a column whose value can be either 'R' or 'O' indicating owneres and renters.

I need a sql statement that returns the total number of renters and owners in an 'Renters' column and
'Owners' column.

for Example:

Owners   Renters
1392        8372

Psuedocode:
Select from tablename
Count(Where fieldname value='O') as Owners,
Count(Where fieldname value='R') as Renters

FROM TableName

What is the syntax?

Thanks,

Use a case statement

Select sum (case when when fieldname = 'O' then 1 else 0 end) as Owners,
sum (case when when fieldname = 'R' then 1 else 0 end) as Renters,
from tablename

That worked,

I just replaced the 'when when' with 'when'

Thanks,
