Below is the SQL I am using to have my app display only the count of records that have IT in their title and have earned the IDW qualification.

strSQL = "SELECT Count(tblMember.COMPASSID) AS MemberCount " & _
             "FROM tblMember " & _
             "WHERE Left$(RankRate, 2 ) = 'IT' and (tblMember.PrimaryWarfareDesignator) Like 'IDW' and ((tblMember.DelStatus)=False)and((tblMember.Civilian)=False);"

Only I keep getting a syntax error on the statement.  

Any thoughts

I believe it's because you lack spaces before and after one of the AND operators.  Try this simplified version:
strSQL = "SELECT Count(tblMember.COMPASSID) AS MemberCount " & _
    "FROM tblMember " & _
    "WHERE Left(RankRate, 2) = 'IT' AND PrimaryWarfareDesignator Like '*IDW*' AND DelStatus=False AND Civilian=False"

I get a runtime error 3061
Too few parameters. Expected 1

Here is the whole code

Function CoreIDW() As Integer
'-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
' Return the number of members in the tblMember table that are ITs and have qualified IDW
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Dim dbCurrent As Database
    Dim rsMembers As Recordset
    Dim strSQL As String
    ' Form the SQL string
    strSQL = "SELECT Count(tblMember.COMPASSID) AS MemberCount " & _
    "FROM tblMember " & _
    "WHERE Left(RankRate, 2) = 'IT' AND PrimaryWarfareDesignator Like '*IDW*' AND DelStatus=False AND Civilian=False"
    Set dbCurrent = CurrentDb
    ' Populate a recordset using the SQL string
    Set rsMembers = dbCurrent.OpenRecordset(strSQL)
    If (IsNull(rsMembers.RecordCount) = True) Or (rsMembers.RecordCount = 0) Then
        ' No attendance records were returned for the Member
        CoreIDW = 0
    Else
        ' Did the Member attend any meetings?
        rsMembers.MoveFirst
        CoreIDW = rsMembers.Fields(0)
    End If
End Function

why don't you try to get what is inside strSQL using msgbox syntax

msgbox  strSQL

use the above line for debugging purpose. This line should be introduced after
DelStatus=False AND Civilian=False"


i.e.


Function CoreIDW() As Integer
'-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
' Return the number of members in the tblMember table that are ITs and have qualified IDW
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Dim dbCurrent As Database
    Dim rsMembers As Recordset
    Dim strSQL As String
    ' Form the SQL string
    strSQL = "SELECT Count(tblMember.COMPASSID) AS MemberCount " & _
    "FROM tblMember " & _
    "WHERE Left(RankRate, 2) = 'IT' AND PrimaryWarfareDesignator Like '*IDW*' AND DelStatus=False AND Civilian=False"

msgbox  strSQL

    Set dbCurrent = CurrentDb
    ' Populate a recordset using the SQL string
    Set rsMembers = dbCurrent.OpenRecordset(strSQL)
    If (IsNull(rsMembers.RecordCount) = True) Or (rsMembers.RecordCount = 0) Then
        ' No attendance records were returned for the Member
        CoreIDW = 0
    Else
        ' Did the Member attend any meetings?
        rsMembers.MoveFirst
        CoreIDW = rsMembers.Fields(0)
    End If
End Function


============

Now after seeing the content of strSQL, you can correct the error easily by you.

Here is what I ended up using, but you were right there was a mis-spelling.

strSQL = "SELECT Count(tblMember.CompassID) AS MemberCount " & _
             "FROM tblMember " & _
             "WHERE ((tblMember.DelStatus)=False)and((tblMember.Civilian)=False) " & _
             "HAVING ((tblMember.[Rank/Rate]) Like 'IT*') AND ((tblMember.PrimaryWarfareDesignator) Like 'IDW');"

Thanks

I don't see the need for HAVING since you are not using GROUP BY.  Using LIKE is also unnecessary for PrimaryWarfareDesignator since you are not using a wildcard in your criteria.  You can just use this:
strSQL = "SELECT Count(COMPASSID) AS MemberCount " & _
    "FROM tblMember " & _
    "WHERE Left([Rank/Rate], 2) Like 'IT*' AND PrimaryWarfareDesignator = 'IDW' AND DelStatus=False AND Civilian=False"
