Simplest way is a nested query. Haven't tested it but you get the idea.

select ID,
       Name,
       (select count(e.EmployeeName)
          from Emp_Total_No e
         where c.id = e.CourseID
         group by e.EmployeeName) as Emp_Total_No
  from courses c

Or you could use a join.

SELECT A.ID
	,A.NAME
	,Count(B.CourseID) AS Emp_Total_No
FROM courses A
JOIN Employees B ON A.ID = B.CourseID
GROUP BY B.courseID
	,A.ID
	,A.NAME

Subquery:
SELECT  ID ,
        Name ,
        ( SELECT    COUNT(CourseID)
          FROM      Employees
          WHERE     Employees.CourseID = Courses.ID
        ) Emp_Total_No
FROM    Courses

Open in new window

left join:
SELECT  C.ID ,
        C.Name ,
        COUNT(E.CourseID) Emp_Total_No
FROM    dbo.Courses C
        LEFT JOIN dbo.Employees E ON C.ID = E.CourseID
GROUP BY C.ID ,
        C.Name

Open in new window


PS.
 Lee Savidge's solution: no need to group by e.EmployeeName in subquery
jeffld's solution: no need to group BY B.courseID
