    Firstly the / in the field name is not a good idea, I would change it. In fact spaces and special characters are a pain and should be avoided at all costs.
    Secondly use a DCount() to get this

    DCount("[Email Status]","YourTableName","[Email Status] = 'Active'")
    Obviously you may need additional criteria to get the correct result.
    DLookup Syntax and others
