In a VBA module, I need to get a count of records from a particular recordset, not a table.  Is there some way I can embed the SQL statement in the DCount instead of using a table name?  

Something like the Code sample below?


If DCount("Zip", "SELECT tbl_PostalCodes_US.Zip FROM tbl_PostalCodes_US WHERE (((tbl_PostalCodes_US.Zip)=Left('" & Me.[Zip] & "',5)));") > 1 Then

Duh!  Thanks!  You're solution is perfect for my example.  Unfortunately, I gave a lame example.  What about the idea of substituting a SQL statement (a SELECT stmt) in the place of the table name?

No you can not use a select statement, it has to be a table or a saved query as the domain.
