Reach record has about 15.

Field1, field2, field3 etc.

Field1  is Name
FIeld2  is a question with a reposne of Yes, No
Field3  is an other quesitons with a resonse option of yes  or no
etc. etc.

I want to be able to sumaries each record as to how many yes answers there are and how many no answers there are.

I tried somethign like this but it did not work - it gave me the amount of reocrds in the the table.
SELECT Table2.Answer, Count(Table2.Answer) AS [Count]
FROM Table2
GROUP BY Table2.Answer;

Sorry, I didn't count the No's.. try this one:

SELECT Table2.Answer, SUM(IIF(Table2.Answer = "yes",1,0)) AS [CountYes],
SUM(IIF(Table2.Answer = "no",1,0)) AS [CountNo],
FROM Table2
GROUP BY Table2.Answer;

This is what i am getting in the query

Headings            -Answer           CountYes            CountNo
Row                          Yes                 3                             0

This is what I am using

SELECT Table1.answer, Sum(IIf(Table1.Answer="yes",1,0)) AS CountYes, Sum(IIf(Table1.Answer="no",1,0)) AS CountNo
FROM Table1
GROUP BY Table1.answer;


There are 3 records with a total of 6 yes and 2 now
I need it to show 6 yes and 2 no

It is only counting the first field that has yes/no as an option .
How can I get it to count all the fields in the record that have yes/no options.

What exactly does your original query do? You said it gives you the number of records instead of the count. It looks like it should work. Is this what it's giving you?

Answer    Count
Yes            6
No             6

I created my own table and tested your original query. It works here. I'm using Access 97.

Pdeters,

Try this

You can cheat a little and subtract the number Yes values from the total number of Yes/No Fields to get the count of the No values.
