    =Count in SQL Report

    In the Report Footer I had this script in my Access 2010. I am now converting the entire database to SQL with Access as the front-end. In the Control Source in the Report the conversion added the "A" Alike in it. I have no idea how to convert it to work with SQL and pull the word Consent from the Consents column.

    Any idea? Thanks!

    =Count(IIf([Consents] ALike "*Consent*",1))

    Try this type of thing:

    =Sum(IIf([Consents] Like "*Consent*",1,0))

    Still puts the A with Like = ALike and is giving me a invalid error.

    Can you post the db here? I tested that and it worked as expected.

    I can't since it is a SQL BE with Access 2010 FE.
    It does work with just using Access but not with SQL.

    Just tested on a form bound to a linked SQL Server table and it still worked as expected. What exactly is your formula?

    I put the formaula exactly as you wrote it in the control source in the report footer text box. The way you wrote it should, work but keeps adding in the A with Like (ALike). I don't understand why... This is what it does to it: =Sum(IIf([Consents] ALike "*Consent*",1,0))

    If I insert it in the stored procedure it will filter for consent (works in that case but not what I need). I need it to count the number of consent, regulatory, and N/A in the report in the control source textbox in the reports footer.

    Did you try unchecking that box or changing the wildcard character to the one Alike wants? Another more dynamic option would be a subform/subreport based on a totals query that counted your items.

    The column is not a check box but a drop down from a form with Consent, Regulatory and N/A. I tried everything with the ALike that I could think of and can not get it to count the quanities I need. I can't find anything so far online to get what I need. The script you gave me was much like the one I had before I started to convert the database to SQL FE.

    Did you read the link I posted, regarding it being an ANSI issue? I'm talking about the checkbox mentioned in the link. You could also try the other wildcard mentioned.

    I noticed that the ability to change the ANSI is it cannot be connected to SQL. Once connected, you loose the two check marks.

    Did you try

    =Sum(IIf([Consents] Like "%Consent%",1,0))
