DSum cancelling on Error 94, Invalid use of Nulls

I am using the following stetment to get a total number of patients in my table.

AllPatients = DSum("[Patients]", wkTable, wkSumClientWhere)

When there are no patients matching the criterion it cancels with an error 94, invalid use of nulls.  It works without fail if there is/are matching patient(s).

How can I set this up to trap that particular error and have the value of AllPatients be zero if there are no matches in the table.

I used a debug to display the contents of the two variable when this statement cancelled and when the Dsum was successful.  The contents were:

wkTable=  tbl_365Day_Counts_Final
 
wkSumClientWhere =  ( ([ClientID]  IN (Select[ClientID] from tblWkRptClients))  And ([LinkDate] Between #3/1/1930# and #3/3/2010#) )

The format of the statements is OK the issue only occurs when there is no matching criterion in the program.

For now I've set it up like this:

AllPatients =0
on error resume next
AllPatients = DSum("[Patients]", wkTable, wkSumClientWhere)
on error go to 0

It works and the end result is a zero in AllPatients if no patients match the criterion.  I just thought there might be a better more general way of handling it.

Interesting WHERE clause for DSum() ... sub query.  Never tried that.   But if you have it working ... guess I would go with that.
