MsAccess bug? or query wrong?

Performing a query, I need a sum of counts of tables.

Query:
SELECT DISTINCT (      SELECT COUNT ([CSTLINKMEMBERS1])
                                    FROM CSTLINKMEMBERSCHECKED
                                    WHERE ((CSTLINKMEMBERS1)=0)
      )
      AS PASSED1
FROM CSTLINKMEMBERSCHECKED;

The subquery DOES return "0":  SELECT COUNT ([CSTLINKMEMBERS1])  FROM CSTLINKMEMBERSCHECKED WHERE ((CSTLINKMEMBERS1)=0).
I would expect this to return "0", would you not?
However it returns no rows at all! its frustrating!

Note: there are times I need to test over 18 fields, so the following query will not work, because of the annoying "Query is too Complex" (one table per field).
SELECT COUNT ([a.CSTLINKMEMBERS1]) AS PASSED1,
FROM
(SELECT CSTLINKMEMBERS1 FROM CSTLINKMEMBERSCHECKED WHERE CSTLINKMEMBERS1=0) a,

how many rows are in CSTLINKMEMBERSCHECKED?  If there are zero rows, your select from the table will return zero rows.
