SQL Server Query

Hi Experts,
I have a simple query:
Select Emp_Id, Emp_Name from Compliments

I would like to know which employee has the most compliments. How can the query be rewritten to show the following columns:
Emp_Id, Emp_Name, Number_Of_Compliments

It should be ordered by Number_Of_Compliments in descending order

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can use the following query...

Select Emp_Id, Emp_Name,count(Emp_Id) as Number_Of_Compliments
 from Compliments
group by Emp_Id, Emp_Name
order by ccount(Emp_Id) desc
