I have a table called Groups:

also I have a users table:
CompanyId,UserId, GroupId

One user belongs only to one group.

So I need to get the groups available based on the number of existing users, for example:

Group Table Info:

If I already have a president user for that company, I want to get a list of all available groups: Admins and Managers. If I already have 5 managers, then the query would return the administrator group only.

Hi there. It would help a lot if you formatted your question with sample data and desired resultset. You can read about proper posting techniques here:

Here, ill get you started:

declare @groups table (CompanyId int, GroupId int, GroupDesc varchar(100), MaxUsers int)
declare @users table (CompanyId int, UserId int, GroupId int)

insert into @groups
	select 10, 1, 'Admins', 10 union
	select 10, 2, 'President', 1 union
	select 10, 3, 'Manager', 5
