Get running total of non duplicate records

I have to include a field in my report that will count the total number of records that are not duplicated in a group. The only problem with this code is that this count is off by one because of the logic. Why is this code off by one record and how can I fix it ?

whileprintingrecords;
onfirstrecord;
{ADMSTAT.PATSYS} <> previous({ADMSTAT.PATSYS}) AND {ADMSTAT.PATSYS} <> Next({ADMSTAT.PATSYS})
AND{ADMSTAT.ADM} = 'Y'

Why did you include the ONFIRSTRECORD?

I think if you delete that you will be ok

Try this instead of what you have:

(onfirstrecord
or
(onlastrecord and {ADMSTAT.PATSYS} <> previous({ADMSTAT.PATSYS}))
or
({ADMSTAT.PATSYS} <> previous({ADMSTAT.PATSYS}) AND {ADMSTAT.PATSYS} <> Next({ADMSTAT.PATSYS})))
and
{ADMSTAT.ADM} = 'Y'


you don't need the whileprintingrecords either.
