This should be an easy one but I've been working it for a week and...well...I guess I need a more current Access For Dummies Book. What I need to know is this: IS THERE A WAY OF PUTTING A COUNT FEATURE IN A REPORT THAT JUST COUNTS RECORDS THAT MATCH A CERTAIN CRITERIA. I have a database that tracks our help desk tickets and I'm trying to build a daily summary report. I have the records grouped on the correct field, (in this case it's the STATUS field) the problem is that it gives me the summary of EVERY entry in that field. I just want to get a count of records where STATUS = RESOLVED. Is there a way of limiting the count to a certain criteria like this? ***BONUS QUESTION*** If this is possible that let me take it one step further. Is there a way of putting a count feature in a report that counts records where two fields have to match a certain criteria. For you oldsters out there who remember DBase III/IV, it would be something similar to the command COUNT FOR CATEGORY = ACTIVE .AND. STATUS = RESOLVED.
