Unanswered: Problem Getting COUNT() to return the value I'm after
Hello. I have a database with the following pivot table which has one record linking each employee in the company to the offices they work at. I'm using a pivot table instead of a direct reference because some employees work at more than one office.
Table Def: tblOfficePivot
key <- PK ID
officeLink <- Link to office record
employeeLink <- link to employee record.
I want to write a select I can use to return the total number of offices with an emplyee population between X and Y (eg. 1-250, 251-500, 501-1000, etc.)
I can write a query which return one result for each office that falls into the range of employees I define. This query looks like this:
SELECT COUNT(officeLink) AS theTotal
GROUP BY officeLink
HAVING COUNT(*) BETWEEN 1 AND 250
The above query returns 1 record for each office with between 1 and 250 employees - the result being the employee count. So, if 2 offices fell into this category, A & B, having 50 and 123 employees respectively, the result set would look Like this:
What I want instead is the total number of offices, in this case 2.
Is there a way to do this without the COMPUTE clause?
Thanks for any suggestions, this one is driving me crazy.
