From a table that contains user logs i need to get info from two columns: contain client_id and log_description.

The user_id column is a 4 word column.
The log description column contains alot of user activity listed in separate rows (including: time logged on, server connected to, IP address, connect/disconnect, action carried out, etc)

how can i find out users (userID column) that have connected and disconnected (log_description column) more than 10 times?

i believe i need to filter the log_description column to search for keywords (%connect% / %disconnect%) and associate that with the userid column. then display results as # of connections.

Please advice.

SELECT userID 
FROM UserLog with (nolock)
WHERE log_description like '%connect%' 
-- disconnect already part of %connect%, do we don't need to mention it
GROUP BY userID
HAVING COUNT(*) > 10
