Using Microsoft Access & VB

I need to put a count of certain type of records from a file on the opening menu.
 
Count such as:
Open - 123
Closed - 3
Archived - 12
 
The file has a total of 138 records, 123 open, 3 closed, and 12 Archived.
 
I did a query to count a field called Status and it does the correct count.
 
I cannot get the count for each of the type of records to print on the menu form.
 
How do I select the proper count from the query?
