What I have is a report that works off off a Query.  I have something called a branch in the query and I break them into differnet sections on the reports.  What I need to do is count the two branchs seperately instead of together.  If I use =count([branch])  in a text box in the footer it counts them all together.  How do I split them out to count them differently on the report.  The 2 branch fields are  ANG and ARNG.  The ANG lists first on the report together then the ARNG lists.  Thanks

Three options:

1.  The Normal Option, put the count in the Group Footer for the branch.  This has the benefit that when you add a new branch you don't have to change the report.

2.  The Simple Option.  In the Footer use =Sum(iif([branch] = "ANG", 1, 0)) and =Sum(iif([branch] = "ARNG",1,0)) to get the separate totals.
This has the problem that if you add a branch or change the branch code you have to redesign the report.

3.  The real Option.  Create a subreport that lists the branches and the counts.

Those need to be in two separate text boxes if you are using option 2.
