sql count if

I am needing to look at a table and see if columns have a match.  I want to see if multiple employees have been clocked onto the same work order and operation.  I have the columns odd_no, Oper_no and empid.  for example I may have the work order number 123456 with operation number 10.  I want to COUNT how many different employees worked on that operation..

SELECT COUNT(DISTINCT empid)
FROM your_table
WHERE odd_no = 123456 AND oper_no = 10

You'll want to look at the full data set just to make sure the above is correct, and any duplicate values are being handled

SELECT odd_no, oper_no, emp_id
FROM your_table
WHERE odd_no = 123456 AND oper_no = 10
ORDER BY odd_no, oper_no, emp_id

what if I want to look at all work orders and operations to see how many employees where clocked into the same one and not just one  exact work order?

Not entirely sure what you mean by 'the same one', but give this a whirl..

List...

SELECT odd_no, oper_no, emp_id
FROM your_table
ORDER BY odd_no, oper_no, emp_id

Open in new window

Count...

SELECT odd_no, oper_no, COUNT(emp_id) as empl_id_count
FROM your_table
GROUP BY odd_no, oper_no
ORDER BY odd_no, oper_no

Nice mockup data.  Next time please add that to your original question, so we don't have to spend time flushing out requirements.

Based on the set above, give this a whirl, and add an ORDER BY clause to sort it by whatever is most readable..
SELECT 
   odd_no as work_order, 
   oper_no as operation_number, 
   emp_id as employee_number, 
   COUNT(emp_id) as empl_id_count
FROM your_table
GROUP BY odd_no, oper_no, emp_id

Both sample data and expected results are best practice when asking this type of question. At this point I think we have the expected result but can deduce the sample data.

Jim is ever so close but I believe you need

COUNT() OVER()

to match that expected result. Like this:
    CREATE TABLE Your_Table
    	([odd_no] int, [Oper_no] int, [empid] int) 
    ;
    	
    INSERT INTO Your_Table
    	([odd_no], [Oper_no], [empid])
    VALUES
    	(12345, 10, 1234),
    	(12345, 10, 2321),
    	(13579, 10, 2321),
    	(2468, 20, 2321),
    	(2468, 20, 1234)
    ;

**Query 1**:

    SELECT
          odd_no                                           AS work_order
        , oper_no                                          AS operation_number
        , empid                                            AS employee_number
        , COUNT(empid) OVER (PARTITION BY odd_no, oper_no) AS empl_id_count
    FROM your_table
    ORDER BY
          odd_no,
          oper_no,
          empid
    

**[Results][2]**:
    
    | WORK_ORDER | OPERATION_NUMBER | EMPLOYEE_NUMBER | EMPL_ID_COUNT |
    |------------|------------------|-----------------|---------------|
    |       2468 |               20 |            1234 |             2 |
    |       2468 |               20 |            2321 |             2 |
    |      12345 |               10 |            1234 |             2 |
    |      12345 |               10 |            2321 |             2 |
    |      13579 |               10 |            2321 |             1 |
