Jonathan,
I am sorry I may have not been clear but there are in fact 721,699 and that is what I showed above

*select per_ind, count(1) cnt from XXX_PER_YYY group by per_ind;*

721,699 rows

PER_IND CNT

• ----------

14820567 2

14820568 2

14823592 2

14888565 2

14332136 2

13565375 2

13617240 2

13546549 92

13546573 92

13546630 92

13546881 92

13546890 92

13546911 92

13546914 92

.

And so on until I arrived at the end (721,699)

13831389 130

13831395 130

13831404 130

13831451 130

```0                            6119655   ----> this is my predicate

```

It is when I count how many distinct CNT I have that I found 59 rows (2, 92, 130, .......6119655) . Thats what I meant by 59 rows

Best regards
