I finally have the end results working properly.  The statement looks in three different places in a specific order to find the answer.  The first place that is not null populates the field.

However, now I must build a validation file on at least one of the resulting fields in the Query.

I have no idea how to add a COUNT(*) to the statement.  Everything errors out and all the answers online do not fully explain how to accomplish this.

I need a Total # of Lines in the query as my result.

Attached is my query.  It is MS SQL Server Management Studio v17.4.[embedCostItems.xlsx=file 1443596]
I have also attached some sample data.  My answer for the Count(Coalesce etc) should be 37, because there are 37 rows in the excel document.
