Hello Experts

I have a table called BF Charging.  I am trying to find the count of all duplicate records in this table.

USE Algoma_BF7
GO

SELECT YourColumn, COUNT(*) TotalCount
FROM BF Charging
GROUP BY YourColumn
HAVING COUNT(*) > 1
ORDER BY COUNT(*) DESC
GO

I am receiving this error message
Msg 208, Level 16, State 1, Line 2
Invalid object name 'BF'.

Getting this because of the space in BF Charging. Tried using different parentheses but did not work.

Thanks

The above paranthesis should work.

if BF Charging is the table name, put it within brackets


SELECT YourColumn, COUNT(*) TotalCount
FROM [BF Charging]
GROUP BY YourColumn
HAVING COUNT(*) > 1
ORDER BY COUNT(*) DESC

Use the "`" symbol to quote:

`BF Charging`

Also, don't use spaces in column names :)
