I have table a and table b with column x in both tables.

In table b the column x  can have the same value on several rows while in table a column x only have unique values.

I want to count the number of rows in table a where the same value exists on more than 10000 rows in table b!

(select 1 from tablea a
 where a.x = b.x)
group by x
having count(*) > 10000;

awking00,  I think you have the tables backwards.  Other than that, the exists method should also work


bear_2013 - both of our methods assume X is NOT NULL.  Is that a safe assumption?
