Percent of Total results from a query

Hello!

Here is my SQL satement thus far for ReasonsQuery:

SELECT DISTINCT SQqryGetOrgWorkedData.Reasons, Count(SQqryGetOrgWorkedData.Reasons) AS CountOfReasons
FROM SQqryGetOrgWorkedData
GROUP BY SQqryGetOrgWorkedData.Reasons
HAVING (((SQqryGetOrgWorkedData.Reasons) Not In ("Closed Correctly")));

This returns a REASON and the total count of that reason within the SQqryGetOrgWorkedData query.

I would like another field, perhaps in this query, but it can be in another query that uses the ReasonsQuery if needed. This field would show the PERCENT for each REASON. So... if the total of all CountOfReasons = 100 and Reason1 = 10, I would like to know that Reason1 is %10 of the total. The "%" sign is not necessary but it would be nice.

Thanks in advance for all your help!

'The expression is typed incorrectly, or is too complex to be evaluated. For example, a numeric expression may contain too many complicated elements. Try simplifying the expression by assigning parts of the expression to variables.'

Is the error I get using that morpheus30.

It went to design view alright though...

My bad, dude...

I did that carelessly.  Try this...

SELECT DISTINCT SQqryGetOrgWorkedData.Reasons, Count(SQqryGetOrgWorkedData.Reasons) AS CountOfReasons, 100 *(Count(SQqryGetOrgWorkedData.Reasons) / SELECT Count(*) FROM SQqryGetOrgWorkedData)  AS PctOfReasons
FROM SQqryGetOrgWorkedData
GROUP BY SQqryGetOrgWorkedData.Reasons
HAVING (((SQqryGetOrgWorkedData.Reasons) Not In ("Closed Correctly")));

Syntax error on: 100 *(Count(SQqryGetOrgWorkedData.Reasons) / SELECT Count(*) FROM SQqryGetOrgWorkedData)

Highlights SELECT

Just as a note, the total count of reasons is not necessarily 100... it's different each time and is probably going to be some odd number like 2567. If that has anything to do with anything, I'm stumped right now.

Ooops....

I forgot the Parentheses...

SELECT DISTINCT SQqryGetOrgWorkedData.Reasons, Count(SQqryGetOrgWorkedData.Reasons) AS CountOfReasons, 100 *(Count(SQqryGetOrgWorkedData.Reasons) / (SELECT Count(*) FROM SQqryGetOrgWorkedData))  AS PctOfReasons
FROM SQqryGetOrgWorkedData
GROUP BY SQqryGetOrgWorkedData.Reasons
HAVING (((SQqryGetOrgWorkedData.Reasons) Not In ("Closed Correctly")));

Better yet...

SELECT DISTINCT SQqryGetOrgWorkedData.Reasons, Count(SQqryGetOrgWorkedData.Reasons) AS CountOfReasons, FormatPercent(Count(SQqryGetOrgWorkedData.Reasons) / (SELECT Count(*) FROM SQqryGetOrgWorkedData), 2)  AS PctOfReasons
FROM SQqryGetOrgWorkedData
GROUP BY SQqryGetOrgWorkedData.Reasons
HAVING (((SQqryGetOrgWorkedData.Reasons) Not In ("Closed Correctly")));

hmmm...

The FormatPercent is supposed to be a standard VBScript function.  As a matter of fact, I am using Access XP, but in Access 2000 format.  It is quite possible that they made a change to support this function in XP and not in 2000.  

Anyway, glad things worked out for you!
