"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

One simple way is to make a formula that says:

if {myfield} = "On Time" then 1 else 0

and sum it.

You can also use a Running Total to get this.

Create a NEW running total
Choose a name - COuntOnTime
Choose the OnTime field
Set the type to COUNT
Evaluate - use formula
   {myfield} = "On Time"
Reset - Never
