Below is an example of the field I am looking at. I am trying to count specific occurances of words. The field is how users are searching. More than one criteria can show up per field.

blahblahblah, Last Name: fakename
blahblahblah, ClientID: fakenumber
blahblahblah, Birth Date: fakedate
blahblahblah, First Name: fakename, Last Name: fakename

This works for me, but I do not want each criteria to be it's own column. I want then all in a column with a count of how many times it appears.

DECLARE @BirthDate Integer
DECLARE @SSN Integer
DECLARE @LastName Integer
DECLARE @FirstName Integer

SET @BirthDate = 0
SET @SSN = 0
SET @LastName = 0
SET @FirstName = 0

SELECT
SUM(CASE WHEN Searchlog.Criteria LIKE '%Birth Date%' THEN @Birthdate + 1 END) as [DOB],
SUM(CASE WHEN Searchlog.Criteria LIKE '%SSN%' THEN @SSN + 1 END) AS [SSN],
SUM(CASE WHEN Searchlog.Criteria LIKE '%Last Name%' THEN @LastName + 1 END) AS [LastName],
SUM(CASE WHEN Searchlog.Criteria LIKE '%First Name%' THEN @FirstName+ 1 END) AS [FirstName]

FROM Searchlog


DOB|SSN|LastName|FirstName|
2 |4 |17 |3 |

I feel like I might be over commplicating things.

SELECT t.val,t1.cnt
FROM
(
SELECT 'Birth Date' AS val UNION ALL
SELECT 'SSN'  UNION ALL
SELECT 'Last Name'  UNION ALL
SELECT 'First Name' 
)t
CROSS APPLY (SELECT COUNT(*) AS Cnt
             FROM SearchLog
             WHERE Criteria LIKE '%' + t.val + '%'
             )t1
