Lightbulb Counting similar lines from file UNIX

I have a file which contains data as below:

Code:
nbk1j7o pageName=/jsp/RMBS/RMBSHome.jsf
nbk1j7o pageName=/jsp/RMBS/RMBSHome.jsf
nbk1j7o pageName=/jsp/RMBS/RMBSHome.jsf
nbk1j7o pageName=/jsp/RMBS/RMBSHome.jsf
nbk1j7o pageName=/jsp/common/index.jsf
nbk1j7o pageName=/jsp/common/index.jsf
nbk1wqe pageName=/jsp/RMBS/RMBSHome.jsf
nbk1wqe pageName=/jsp/common/index.jsf
nbk2coz pageName=/jsp/RMBS/PassThrough.jsf
nbk2coz pageName=/jsp/RMBS/PassThrough.jsf
nbk2coz pageName=/jsp/RMBS/PassThrough.jsf
nbk2coz pageName=/jsp/RMBS/PassThrough.jsf
nbk2coz pageName=/jsp/RMBS/PassThrough.jsf
nbk2coz pageName=/jsp/RMBS/PassThrough.jsf
nbk2coz pageName=/jsp/RMBS/PassThrough.jsf

I want output like:

--------------------------------------------------------
Code:
NBKID       PAGE ACCESSED                             COUNT
--------------------------------------------------------
nbk1j7o    pageName=/jsp/RMBS/RMBSHome.jsf    4
nbk1j7o    pageName=/jsp/common/index.jsf        2
nbk1wqe  pageName=/jsp/RMBS/RMBSHome.jsf     1
nbk1wqe  pageName=/jsp/common/index.jsf         1
nbk2coz   pageName=/jsp/RMBS/PassThrough.jsf   7



In short, i want to count the similar lines and remove multiple entries and include the count of that particular line.

To keep the forums high quality for all users, please take the time to format your posts correctly.
  1. Use Code Tags when you post any code or data samples so others can easily read your code.
    You can easily do this by highlighting your code and then clicking on the # in the editing menu. (You can also type code tags [code] and [/code] by hand.)
  2. Avoid adding color or different fonts and font size to your posts.
    Selective use of color to highlight a single word or phrase can be useful at times, but using color, in general, makes the forums harder to read, especially bright colors like red.
  3. Be careful when you cut-and-paste, edit any odd characters and make sure all links are working property.

Thank You.

Code:
awk '{a[$0]++}END{for(i in a)print i,a[i]}' file | sort

A slightly different take on the problem, where counting of occurrences is done in the shell itself:

Code:
sort data.txt | uniq -c | perl -ne 'split; printf("%s %s %s\n",$_[1],$_[2],$_[0])'

Please define 'looking good'. Please use code tags when posting data/code samples.
