<cfquery datasource="yourdsn" name="access_query">
SELECT Source, COUNT(ID) AS SourceCount FROM table_name GROUP BY Source
</cfquery>

<cfoutput query="access_query">
#Source# --> #SourceCount#<br>
</cfoutput>

i guess, your problem is to get the count??? you should be able to give a name to the count variable.


Example 1)
select source,count(id) As 'sourcecount' from table_name group by source

Example 2)
select source,count(id) As sourcecount from table_name group by source


the only difference between example 1 and 2 is the ' around sourcecount, i am working with microsoft sql and there are both allowed, not sure with access, you should try it.


CF:

<cfoutput query="myquery">
 Source: #Source#, Occurance: #sourcecount# times
</cfoutput>
