I think you have over-complicated your SQL statement. You could simply use:

Select COUNT(DISTINCT(EntryNo))
From Cash
Where PmtDat = 5

A full example:

IF OBJECT_ID('tempdb..#Cash', 'U') IS NOT NULL DROP TABLE #Cash
Create Table #Cash
(
  EntryNo int,
  PmtDat int
)

Insert Into #Cash (EntryNo, PmtDat) Values (1, 2)
Insert Into #Cash (EntryNo, PmtDat) Values (2, 3)
Insert Into #Cash (EntryNo, PmtDat) Values (3, 4)
Insert Into #Cash (EntryNo, PmtDat) Values (4, 5)
Insert Into #Cash (EntryNo, PmtDat) Values (5, 5)

Select COUNT(DISTINCT(EntryNo))
From #Cash
Where PmtDat = 5
