I have a formula set up to filter data in a column.
{tbOrders.OrderStatus}=220
It gives out me a boolean parameter true or false. What I need now is a count of positive  records(true).
In general i need to have a count of '220' record in a column grouped by another column(time).  
Can anyone help me with that ??

If you only want to count true values, create a formula to return a 1 or 0.

@Count_True

If {table.field} = True then
    1
else
    0

Place the field in your detail section and suppress it.
Right click the field and choose Insert, Summary.
In the box that opens up, the formula should be the field, make sure that summary type is SUM, and change the location to your Time Grouping.

Bdreed solution will work but if you dont want ti insert summaries you can get the total count in one formula like this. I have adjusted breeds formula

@Count_True

numbervar totalcount;

If {table.field} = True then
    totalcount := totalcount +1
else
    totalcount := totalcount

Emre - This is true, there is mnore than one way to skin a cat.  The only difference is that your solution is only available at the end og a grouping or the report, whereas, is you need the total in the group or report headers, you will have to use the solution that I presented.

That is true too. I only want to give him the other options like everybody else does. I think it is a good information to know that you can get the summary totals by using formulas too.

No problem.  For that matter, you could also create a Running Total.
