Not sure I follow but to use the same type of count with three words:

COUNT(CASE WHEN TYPE in ('rec','ric','roc') then 1 end)

Hi,

no work because the rec, ric, roc is a part of the string, not the complete string, this is something that i forget to mention

We cannot read minds...  ;)

then multiple 'or's?

COUNT(CASE WHEN TYPE like '%rec%' or TYPE like  '%ric%' or TYPE like  '%roc%') then 1 end)

move the wildcards however you need them.
