    Post Access function to count records

    Hello,

    I am attempting to count records within a data base that do not match one possibel answer in a given field.
    To put it more clearly, I want to count the companies in a database that are headquartered in several several countries except one, Portugal. What is the Access function formula that will deliver that answer?
    Data base: Member Companies
    Table: Companies data
    Field: Headquarter


    Best regards,

    Manuel Baptista

    Depending on how/where you want the answer, you can use SQL or a DCount() function, with the appropriate criteria (Headquarter <> "Portugal").

    Post Access function to count records - exclusion of 2 or more answers

    Dear Mr. Paul Baldy,

    Thank you so much for your answer. It solved me a problem that I have been trying to fix for several months!
    There is just one more thing I would like to ask you: to count records that do not match more than 1 possible answer in a given field - using my former example, let's say I want to exclude 2 countries, Portugal and Spain - how can I use the function Dcount the way you told me and separate these two answers? I have tried using a comma (Headquarter <> "Portugal", repeating the symbols <>, leaving blank spaces but none worked out.
    Regards,

    You probably didn't repeat the field name. Try

    Headquarter <> "Portugal" AND Headquarter <> "Spain"

    In SQL you could also use

    ...WHERE Headquarter NOT IN("Portugal", "Spain")

    Say hello to my friend Estuardo who also lives in Portugal.
