SELECT        COUNT(*) AS CNT
FROM            web_board
WHERE class_number = 45

MY entity code:
NLAMEMEntities2 oe = new NLAMEMEntities2();

var cnt = oe.web_board.Where(x =>) x.class_number == "45").Count();

label1.text = cnt.ToString();

Except for the extraneous paren and double quotes, does what you have not work?

Corrected
var cnt = oe.web_board.Where(x => x.class_number == 45).Count();

var cnt = oe.web_board.Where(x => x.class_number == "45").Count();
