Hi there.  On my SQLExpress server, I have several Databases.  How do I write a query for a specific Database Table ?  I am trying to get the count of the number of records in a table.  This is what I have so far, but of course it doesn't work:

SELECT COUNT(RecordID) FROM Settings WHERE RecordID > 0

Settings is the table name, and WebBook is the name of the database.  It would seem that I should identify the database at some point.

Thank you for your help.

What is the error, or does it run but return 0 records?
Have you got the database selected?
Theres nothing wrong with the query.

Is it possibly,
SELECT COUNT(RecordID) FROM WebBook.Settings WHERE RecordID > 0

change the current database, then run your query

USE WebBook

SELECT COUNT(RecordID) FROM Settings WHERE RecordID > 0
