ok, if you have a resolved textbox or a check box then rename it to something meaningful.

then in your unbound text box  put in the dcount formula:

=Dcount("Ticketsfieldyouwantdisplayed","tickettable","ticketstatus=" & chResoloved & "")

Of course change the names to match your table and fields.  chResolved is a checbox field that is either true or false.

Why dont you use dcount instead.

=Dcount("Ticketsfield","tickettable","ticketstatus=" & resoloved & "")

Where are you going to use this expression? On a report or form or query?
