Hi,

Select x,y,count(*) from table a where not exists(select ' ' from table b where a.x=b.x and a.y=b.y having count(*) > 1) group by x,y.

But I have a doubt Why you need the count. Anyway the unique rows count will be 1. Isnt it?. Corrections are welcome.

The correction in my query.
Code:

Select count(*) from table a where not exists(select ' ' from table b where a.x=b.x and a.y=b.y having count(*) > 1).

Now only understood that you need the total count of unique rows.
