Column in results set for each record needs to display the total record count for the query

Column in results set for each record needs to display the total record count for the query

Column in results set for each record needs to display the total record count for the query

(OP)
Not sure how to run a query where a column will be populated with the value for the total number of records in the query results set, for each record in the record set.

If query results have 5 records, then the value 5 should be in column C for each of the five records.

name | dept | Col C

smith acct 5
jones mktg 5
wilson mmis 5
walker mmis 5
johnson admn 5

Appreciate your help.

Thanks, awaria

RE: Column in results set for each record needs to display the total record count for the query

Use CTEs:

CODE

WITH cteMainResult AS
(SELECT ... (whatever your main query is doing to grab name and dept)),

cteTotal (nTotal)
AS
(SELECT COUNT(*) FROM cteMainResult)

SELECT Name, Dept, nTotal
   FROM cteMainResult
     CROSS JOIN cteTotal

Try...

CODE

SELECT name, dept, COUNT(*) OVER (PARTITION BY NULL) count
  FROM YourTable
