Can you just set up an AutoNumber field in the table the subform is based on? Even if you don't use the numbers, that's the easiest way to track the count of records.

Add a textbox to the subform.

set the control source of the text box
=RecNum()

Create a function in the subform called RecNum
Also, do a recalc when records are added or deleted from the subform.


This code is added to the subform.

Public Function RecNum()

    On Error GoTo NoCurrentRecord
   
    'this line fails if a new record is being inserted
    Me.RecordsetClone.Bookmark = Me.Bookmark

    RecNum = Me.RecordsetClone.AbsolutePosition + 1
   
    Exit Function

NoCurrentRecord:

End Function

Private Sub Form_AfterDelConfirm(Status As Integer)
    Me.Recalc
End Sub

Private Sub Form_AfterInsert()
    Me.Recalc
End Sub

The autonumber may not be a valid representation of the number of records especially if a record is deleted or 'escaped' while being entered. If a new record is escaped and then reentered, Access's Autonumber WILL increment.

I looks like I posted a Comment document earlier, not an Answer.  So, here is an Answer document.

Also, on a subform, one could get most any subset of records, in most any order.  An autoincrement indicates the order in which records are added, it does not indicate the order in which they are displayed.
