Access Query To Count True/False Values

Anthony6890 asked
Last Modified: 2012-07-01
Hi everyone, I have two tables setup in my access database.  The first one is a case history table.  It lists such columns as Case #, Aging Parents (Yes/No), Energy (Yes/No) and etc.

I then have another table that is a log of the activity that has occurred for each case.  Some cases can have multiple entries.  

When I go to create a query that will sum the number of Aging Parents cases, if there are multiple entries in my case table it will count the same case multiple times for one category- when in all reality it's just the same case.  Does anyone know how I  can sum each column based on each case number and not each entry in my log table?

There is a join between my data table and log table, it's joined by the Case #.
