I would like to find the 'count' of the field 'QCReportNo' and save it in a variable.
I've attached my code but can't even get it to compile.  I get the error...
    Wrong number of arguments or invalid property assignment.
strSQL = "SELECT Count(tblDaily.QCReportNo) "
strSQL = strSQL & "FROM tblDaily INNER JOIN (tblInstrumentsUsed INNER JOIN tblInstrumentsDesc ON tblInstrumentsUsed.InstrumentDescId = tblInstrumentsDesc.InstrumentDescId) ON tblDaily.QCReportNo = tblInstrumentsUsed.QCReportNo "
strSQL = strSQL & "WHERE (((tblDaily.QCReportNo)=[Forms]![frmPrevDailyDFT]![cboQCRptNo]))"
DoCmd.RunSQL (strSQL)
dblCount = Count(QCReportNo)

Try giving the counted value an alias.  i.e. "SELECT Count(tblDaily.QCReportNo) AS QCReportNoCount "

Then, try assigning dblCount = QCReportNoCount.

Thank you so much for your quick response.  I've changed my code and reposted.  Now I get the message 'Variable not defined" for the alias value.  However it could be related to my statement.
I tried running the code with the last line commented out and it compiles but on the
Do.Cmd.RunSQL (strSQL)
I get the error...
A RunSQL action requires an argument consisting of an SQL statement.
If I just want a count do I even need the do.cmd line?
Thanks in advance.
    strSQL = "SELECT Count(tblDaily.QCReportNo) As RptNoCount "
    strSQL = strSQL & "FROM tblDaily INNER JOIN (tblInstrumentsUsed INNER JOIN tblInstrumentsDesc ON tblInstrumentsUsed.InstrumentDescId = tblInstrumentsDesc.InstrumentDescId) ON tblDaily.QCReportNo = tblInstrumentsUsed.QCReportNo "
    strSQL = strSQL & "WHERE (((tblDaily.QCReportNo)=[Forms]![frmPrevDailyDFT]![cboQCRptNo]))"
    DoCmd.RunSQL (strSQL)
    dblCount = RptNoCount

I changed my SQL code and added a 'group by' because I think it needs it to give me the right count.  But the errors are the same as above.

strSQL = "SELECT Count(tblDaily.QCReportNo) AS RptNoCnt "
     strSQL = strSQL & "FROM tblDaily INNER JOIN (tblInstrumentsUsed INNER JOIN tblInstrumentsDesc ON tblInstrumentsUsed.InstrumentDescId = tblInstrumentsDesc.InstrumentDescId) ON tblDaily.QCReportNo = tblInstrumentsUsed.QCReportNo "
     strSQL = strSQL & "GROUP BY tblDaily.QCReportNo "
     strSQL = strSQL & "HAVING (((tblDaily.QCReportNo)=[Forms]![frmPrevDailyDFT]![cboQCRptNo]))"
