TSQL Interview: Having Clause

Having clause work like a where clause with group clause. It is filter conditioning for group by data.
Where clause work for filter condition on Normal Data while having clause works for group data such as count() > value or sum() > value.
Create Table #Employee(Id int identity(1,1),Name Varchar(100),Designation Varchar(100),Salary int)

Insert into #Employee Values('Rahul','SSE',30000)
Insert into #Employee Values('Rohit','SE',20000)
Insert into #Employee Values('Ronit','SE',20000)
Insert into #Employee Values('Rupesh','TL',40000)
Insert into #Employee Values('Ahishek','AM',50000)
Insert into #Employee Values('Rakesh','SSE',30000)
Insert into #Employee Values ('Ashok','AM',50000)
Insert into #Employee Values ('Puneet','SE',20000)
Insert into #Employee Values ('Vineet','SSE',40000)

/* Having Clause data*/

Select count(*),Designation from #Employee 
group by Designation
