aikimark, thanks. i should have said that the query is pullng together 2 tables. I get the following error message.
"Item cannot be found in the collection corresponding to the requested name or ordinal"

I am guessing it is because the the count field comes from the tblplatforms but i cannot seem to get the code to work, any ideas?

since I don't know what fields are returned by the QryPlatformIncidentVolumesCurrent  query, I used the most logical field name.  If you run the query, you should see the name of the column with the count value.  Change my code accordingly.
