Hi

I need to count the numbers of entries per day in a database.

Then I need the result to be displayed so that I can see how many entries there were per day.

Thanks for a very quick response.

However that example showed me the number of 1 (one) per entry.

Example:

If the date 02/02/2011 had 12 entries I get 12 entries and not 02/02/2011 = 12

Let me know if I'm unclear.

You can simply convert to DATE if you are on SQL Server 2008.
select convert(date, datefield) as Daily, Count(*) Cnt
from table1
group by convert(date, datefield)
