I have 2 tables. I want to return everything from Table1 where ItemId=2. I want to add one column CountUnits that tells how many times UnitId exists in Table2. How do I write a stored procedure for this?

Table 1
T1Id, ItemId, UnitId, T1Name
Table 2
T2Id, UnitId, T2Name.

Parameter: ItemId
Return:   T1Id, ItemId, UnitId,T1Name, CountUnits

this query will give you te result

select t1.T1Id, t1.ItemId, t1.UnitId, t1.T1Name, count(*) as CountUnits
from table1 t1
         inner join table2 t2 on t1.UnitId = t2.UnitId
where t1.ItemId = 2
group by t1.T1Id, t1.ItemId, t1.UnitId, t1.T1Name

and as a spit can be like this

CREATE PROCEDURE spCountUnits
    @itemId               int,
    @countUnits        int OUTPUT
AS

select t1.T1Id, t1.ItemId, t1.UnitId, t1.T1Name, @countUnits = count(*)
from table1 t1
         inner join table2 t2 on t1.UnitId = t2.UnitId
where t1.ItemId = @itemId
group by t1.T1Id, t1.ItemId, t1.UnitId, t1.T1Name;



and you can call it like

declare @countUnit    int;
exec  spCountUnits  2(will be your itemId), @countUnit OUTPUT;
select @countUnit;

Thanks. If I use this I only get returned the rows with matching unitid in table 2.
I would like to get all rows returned from table 1. If there is no mathching unitId in table 2 then I would like to have "0" in CountUnits column, but otherwise the number of times particular unitId appears in table 2.
For example if unitId=2 is in 3 rows in table 2 CountUnits=3. If there is no row with unitid=3 in Table 2 then CountUnits=0.
