I'm trying to get a count of all SQL tables that start with "comp", but I also want to filter out the count to only records inside these tables that have "Type" column > 0 (some are null, I don't want to count them), and "List" column should be NULL. The query below will get me as far as the count by table name, but I can't figure out how to update the query so it filters the count based on the values as well.

SELECT t.name, s.row_count from sys.tables t
JOIN sys.dm_db_partition_stats s
ON t.object_id = s.object_id
AND t.type_desc = 'USER_TABLE'
AND t.name like 'comp%'
AND s.index_id IN (0,1)
