Indexed View Error - select list does not include a proper use of COUNT_BIG

I Tried to Create a Index on the Existing View, then i got the following Error:
Msg 10138, Level 16, State 1, Line 1
Cannot create index on view 'EISA.dbo.VIEW_CLIENT_GLOBAL' because its select list does not include a proper use of COUNT_BIG. Consider adding COUNT_BIG(*) to select list.

I Created View By using following Query:

I Used the Following Query to Create an Index on the Created View "VIEW_CLIENT_GLOBAL" By using following Query:

If you want to create a Index on the view, we need follow the rules given in the following link,
If GROUP BY is specified, the view select list must contain a COUNT_BIG(*) expression, and the view definition cannot specify HAVING, CUBE, or ROLLUP.
I Altered My View with COUNT_BIG(*) AS COUNT as shown below:

Then i created the index on the view by Query which is available in "Code2" Section, it works fine.

SQL SCHEMABINDING Error - Names must be in two-part format and an object cannot reference itself

Today I Tried to Create a View WITH SCHEMABINDING then i received the following error.

Msg 4512, Level 16, State 3, Procedure VIEW_CLIENT_GLOBAL, Line 4
Cannot schema bind view 'VIEW_CLIENT_GLOBAL' because name 'FACT_CLIENT_GLOBAL' is invalid for schema binding. Names must be in two-part format and an object cannot reference itself.
I used the following Query:

I think, you aware the use of "WITH SCHEMABINDING". If Not, Please Check My Post Here

By Error message Itself we can find out what is wrong.

When You Create a view "WITH SCHEMABINDING", Database will keep the reference with object name. many database object can be created with same name from difference user, if we create the view by using only name. There are lot of difficulties to handle. To avoid that, SQL Server expects the Object Name in Proper Format like

In My Query I changed to DBO.FACT_CLIENT_GLOBAL, then i tried to create the view then it works fine.

Note: Also You have to Ensure that your Table and View should be exists in the Same Database, if you are Enabling "WITH SCHEMABINDING". Otherwise you may get the same error message

Hope it Helps you!
