You just need to group by the Invoice Number as well.

SELECT [Working-rep+acc].[Sales Rep], [Working-rep+acc].[Invoice Number], Count ([Working-rep+acc].[Invoice Number]) AS  [CountOfInvoice Number]
FROM [Working-rep+acc]
GROUP BY [Working-rep+acc].[Sales Rep], [Working-rep+acc].[Invoice Number];

in access you should use sub-query for your select that contains the distinct select
something like

SELECT t.[Sales Rep], Count (t.[Invoice Number]) AS  [CountOfInvoice Number]
FROM (
SELECT distinct [Working-rep+acc].[Sales Rep], [Working-rep+acc].[Invoice Number]) AS t
GROUP BY [Working-rep+acc].[Sales Rep];

If you have multiple entries for [Invoice Number] for each [Sales Rep], and you like to count only unique Invoice numbers, you should at first create query, where you will Group by Invoice Number and Sales Rep. In second query you will be able to count unique Invoice Numbers. Queries could be combined in one.
Result could be:

SELECT Count(Q1.[Invoice Number]) AS [CountOfInvoice Number], Q1.[Sales Rep]
FROM (SELECT [Working-rep+acc].[Invoice Number], [Working-rep+acc].[Sales Rep]
FROM [Working-rep+acc]
GROUP BY [Working-rep+acc].[Invoice Number], [Working-rep+acc].[Sales Rep]) As Q1
GROUP BY Q1.[Sales Rep];
