    Count number of entries of query in a Report

    Hi, so I've got a fairly specific question that I can't seem to find a solution to online. Basically I want a report to reference how many entries there are in a query. So if the query has 27 entries, I want the report to just show the number "27" somewhere. Any idea how to do that? I found the count function but I'm not sure how to actually input it in a report and have it cite an unrelated query

    You're asking for a record count?
    Rest of my answer removed for now as it is incorrect.
    - "doesn't work" doesn't help. Implement changes in copies of your database.

    If your query is called qryMyReport then


    Would give you the answer.
    Assuming the report is opened from a form you could pass that value in using the OpenArgs.
    Alternatively you could add an unbound text box to your Report and simply add the above as it's control source
    = DCount("*","qryMyReport")
    and use that.

    Thirdly you could, in the reports code use a recordsetcount on the report to get the same information.
