Another simple SQL query

I have a query that returns all rows with a single identifier:

select ParentLink_RecId
        from TASK
        --where (RESOLVEDDATETIME) = 2008
        Group by ParentLink_RecId
        having count(ParentLink_RecId) = 1

Now what I want to do is use this as the input in a nested SQL query:

e.g. select count(1)
from (select ParentLink_RecId
        from TASK
        where (RESOLVEDDATETIME) = 2008
        Group by ParentLink_RecId, ownerteam, month(RESOLVEDDATETIME)
        having count(ParentLink_RecId) = 1)
I get a Incorrect syntax near )

I need to only pull relevant data back from the initial result set any ideas?

Any idea's as this should be easy - I essentially just need to loop the input from the initial query bringing back other details
