Nesting SQL?

Hi - I have a number of records with different Analysts assigned in a table and I would like to create a query that returns the record count for each Analyst in the same query but I am not if this can be done. I'm sure it most likely can be but I don't know how to implement it off the top of my head.

For example, I have the query

SELECT count (*) AS JC
FROM QTab
WHERE analyst = 'john cashmere'

How can I add more analysts to the query? For example , I have Bill Mosth, Craig Hany, etc etc

It would be great to get all these counts returned in one query



Thanks for any assistance

Can you show the qTab structure? This sounds like a cross-tab query.

if you want to count the no. of rows based on the anlyst then you can use the group by clause

SELECT count (*) AS JC
FROM QTab
where  analyst in ( 'john cashmere','analyst2','analyst3')
group by analyst

I think you want the count of records for every analyst. If so, remove the WHERE condition.
select analyst,count(*) from QTab group by analyst
