You can concatenate the columns together:select count(distinct INVENTORY_ITEM_KEY || COST_TYPE_KEY) from ITEM_COST_DETAILS_FBe aware that this will convert both columns to a CHARACTER data type before concatenating them, so you'll want to make sure the format of the column will properly report all values.Hope that helps.

If the text conversion causes issues, you may want to try a GROUP BY of INVENTORY_ITEM_KEY,COST_TYPE_KEY instead of concatenating.

have you try this :select count(*) from select INVENTORY_ITEM_KEY,COST_TYPE_KEYfrom ITEM_COST_DETAILS_Fgroup by INVENTORY_ITEM_KEY,COST_TYPE_KEY ) as MYCOUNT
