Display record count on an Access report

I have an existing Access report whose record source is a union query.
The primary key of each of the tables is a compound key if I'm using the correct terminology (the primary key of each table is made up of 4 separate fields)

I need to display the total record count of the records on my report.  Let's say my report displays 100 line items (ie records).  I need to also display something like "Total Records: 100" or whatever.  How do I do it?

use DCount()

in a text box make the control source property:

=DCount("*","qryortblName")

replace qryortblName with the actual name of the query or table to which the report is bound.

Side Note:

"The primary key of each of the tables is a compound key if I'm using the correct terminology (the primary key of each table is made up of 4 separate fields)"
Highly recommend you make the Access AutoCounter the Primary Key, then - if necessary, create a Compound Unique Index on those 4 fields (easy to do).  A compound PK is a PITA, especially when create relationships based on that table and/or when you need to refer to the PK form elsewhere, say in code ... even joins in queries.
