Count the number of rows in a query result set

I have a procedure that, depending on whether the query returns 0 rows it must do something and if it returns 1 or more, do something else.  So, how so I simply count the number of rows in a query?  I need to count the number or rows in qryPauseDurations first, if 0, then I only want to run the one query in the ElseIf portion.
Private Sub RunDurations()
'Runs queries to calculate durations
If RowCount >= 1 Then
 
        DoCmd.OpenQuery "qryPauseDurations", acViewNormal 'Need to    count number of rows in this query
 
        DoCmd.OpenQuery "qryStepDurations", acViewNormal
        DoCmd.OpenQuery "qryTaskDurations", acViewNormal
        DoCmd.OpenQuery "qryUpdatePauseStepDurations", acViewNormal
        DoCmd.Close acQuery, "qryPauseDurations"
        DoCmd.Close acQuery, "qryStepDurations"
        DoCmd.Close acQuery, "qryTaskDurations"
        DoCmd.Close acQuery, "qryUpdatePauseStepDurations"
ElseIf RowCount = 0 Then
        DoCmd.OpenQuery "qryUpdateStepOnly", acViewNormal
End If
End Sub

And you won't need this:

        DoCmd.OpenQuery "qryPauseDurations", acViewNormal 'Need to    count number of rows in this query

unless you really want to open also ??

Private Sub RunDurations()
'Runs queries to calculate durations
If DCount("*", "qryPauseDurations") >= 0  then
         DoCmd.OpenQuery "qryStepDurations", acViewNormal
        DoCmd.OpenQuery "qryTaskDurations", acViewNormal
        DoCmd.OpenQuery "qryUpdatePauseStepDurations", acViewNormal
        DoCmd.Close acQuery, "qryPauseDurations"
        DoCmd.Close acQuery, "qryStepDurations"
        DoCmd.Close acQuery, "qryTaskDurations"
        DoCmd.Close acQuery, "qryUpdatePauseStepDurations"
Else
        DoCmd.OpenQuery "qryUpdateStepOnly", acViewNormal
End If
End Sub

Private Sub RunDurations()
'Runs queries to calculate durations
If DCount("*", "qryPauseDurations") > 0  then                                     '   ** HAD TYPO HERE >=0
         DoCmd.OpenQuery "qryStepDurations", acViewNormal
        DoCmd.OpenQuery "qryTaskDurations", acViewNormal
        DoCmd.OpenQuery "qryUpdatePauseStepDurations", acViewNormal
        DoCmd.Close acQuery, "qryPauseDurations"
        DoCmd.Close acQuery, "qryStepDurations"

Ok, it recorgnized if it i 1 or more and runs the first if code.  However, it simply does not recognize what to do if there are 0 rows.  Let me check the query for that first.....
