    Joining tables


    I need to make a query some joins but I met some problem.
    I have 2 tables connected many to one relationship.

    Tables are Systems (SystemID, SystemName) and Servers (ServerID, ServerName, SystemID, RegionID) (one system can have many servers)
    I need to use Servers table to make join with Region table bacause I want to count Systems in each region.

    I tried to do this with joins but it doesn't work because I always get servers count.

    Any ideas how it can be done?

    The region table has 2 columns: regionID, regionName. This is dictionary table with 6 rows.

    Use group by RegionID and COUNT to get servers for each region.

    Thank You skhanal. I just figured it out by myself a few moments ago.

    I made some changes and now I am trying to use CTE and Over clause to count records.

    I created below query byt it doesn't work. I got error:
    Incorrect syntax near 'distinct'.
    -- Define the CTE expression name and column list.
    WITH Counter_CTE (SystemID, SystemName, ServerID, ServerName, SystemModel, SystemType, SystemGroup, RemsCode, City, Region)
    -- Define the CTE query.
    sy.SystemID, sy.SystemName, se.ServerID, se.servername, smd.systemmodel, st.systemtype, sg.systemgroup, re.remscode,, co.region
    Systems sy
    inner join Servers se on sy.SystemID = se.systemid
    inner join Systemmodels smd on sy.systemmodelid = smd.SystemModelID
    inner join SystemTypes st on smd.SystemTypeID = st.SystemTypeID
    inner join SystemGroups sg on st.SystemGroupID = sg.SystemGroupID
    inner join REMS re on se.REMSID = re.REMSID
    inner join Cities ci on re.CityID = ci.CityID
    inner join Countries co on ci.CountryID = co.CountryID
    --order by sy.SystemName
    -- Define the outer query referencing the CTE name.
    SELECT SystemID, region, COUNT(distinct SystemID) over (partition by systemid) AS TotalSsytems
    FROM Counter_CTE
    ORDER BY TotalSsytems desc
    I found that distnct can be used with count.
    Any ideas how it should look like?
