Also, are you running MS SQL server or oracle?

**MathMate**, Saturday, July 23, 2011 at 9:28pmAs a start, you may want to display the sections so you can manually count how many there are for each instructor for comparing with later results.

I believe the out join syntax looks like this:

select ID, name, section from instructor outer join on instructor.section = courses.section;

You will have to experiment with the different parameters of the outer join clause to get exactly what you want.

Once this is done, you can remove the many printed lines using count() function to return the number of sections each instructor teaches.
