SELECT m.*
FROM MyTable m
    JOIN (SELECT MyTableID, count(some_column) as the_count FROM OtherTable GROUP BY MyTableID) o ON m.MyTableId = o.MyTableId
GROUP BY MyTableId
ORDER BY MyTableId
HAVING o.the_count > 0    -- <--   Looky here

I have an article called SQL Server GROUP BY Solutions that talks a lot about the HAVING clause.  If you like what you see, please click the 'Yes' button next to 'Was this article helpful?', and provide some feedback.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,
You can achieve your result this way
;With CTE as
(
SELECT MyTableId, Cnt=(SELECT COUNT(*) FROM OtherTable o where o.MyTableId=m.MyTableId)
 FROM MyTable
)

SELECT * FROM CTE WHERE CNT > 0

I'm not sure if it is deliberate or not but you have omitted GROUP BY in your question; but you refer to getting recordS (plural) so I assume a group by being used.

SELECT o.MyTableId, COUNT(*)  as cnt
FROM OtherTable o
GROUP BY o.MyTableId
HAVING COUNT(*)  > 0

Use a HAVING clause which allows you to filter the aggregated values, here it will remove all counts of zero from the result.
