Hi,

I have a table with a int field.  Without using a sub query I'd like to count the number of rows based on a condition, i.e. count the number of rows where a column is not 0.  i.e.
SELECT *, (COUNT(* WHERE COL A IS NOT 0)) FROM tablename.

You coudl just do a SUM with a case statement.

SELECT SUM (WHEN COL <> 0 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END )

> Without using a sub query
you cannot do that at the same level as the query itself ...
