I'm using SQL Server 2019.

I'm using the Northwind Sample Microsoft Database 

So I'm using the Orders table which looks like this:

      ,[EmployeeID]       ,[OrderDate]       ,[RequiredDate]       ,[ShippedDate]       ,[ShipVia]       ,[Freight]       ,[ShipName]       ,[ShipAddress]       ,[ShipCity]       ,[ShipRegion]       ,[ShipPostalCode]       ,[ShipCountry]   FROM [Northwind].[dbo].[Orders] ORDER BY [OrderDate]

Open in new window

I'm trying to get Count of the order placed each day.

Desired Query Result

So my desired result will be to show the number of orders placed for each date like this  mockup image.

On 07/04/1996 only one order was placed.

On 07/05/1996 only one order was placed.

On 07/08/1996 there were 2 orders placed.

..... and so on for every day there was an order placed

What is the best syntax for this result?
