Hi there.  I need to count the number of cases with a checked box for a particular field on a report attached to the table, but am not sure how to do this - have had a look elsewhere on EE but can only seem to find how to do this on a form in a live sense, which I don't need to do - I just need a count to appear on the report.  Any idea how I do that?

In Access, True is -1 and False is 0, so if you add up the values of all the check boxes you will get a minus # of checked boxes.

If you need this in a footer on the report, =Abs(Count(YourCheckBoxField))

Thanks for that, although for some reason all that seems to give me is the total number of checkboxes (ie - 60, and there are 60 clients on the system) as opposed to the number which are checked (which is just 4)

Sorry too this question seems to have partially ended up in the C# programming category which wasn't intended...!

I think jimhorn meant to say
=Abs(Sum(YourCheckBoxField))

PS - I don't want the points - typo on jim's part
