<air code, rename the obvious>

SELECT
  Count(CASE WHEN Quote='Yes' THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) as 'yes_total',
  Count(CASE WHEN Quote='No' THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) as 'No_total',
  Count(CASE WHEN Quote='Drop' THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) as 'drop_total',
  Count(CASE WHEN Quote='Self' THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) as 'self_total'
FROM NewBusinessLineItem

try the below one, this is one possible way of achieving your goal, although there is another functionality called pivot which can be employed to do this as well.

select Count(case quote when 'Yes' THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS 'YES TOTAL'
,Count(case quote when 'NO' THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS 'No TOTAL'
,Count(case quote when 'Drop' THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS 'Drop TOTAL'
,Count(case quote when 'Self' THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) AS 'Self TOTAL'
from NewBusinessLineItem

btw the above is the SQL Server answer.  Since I see the Access zone in the question, but not whether you are looking for a SQL Server or an Access answer, I'll defer to my Access peers if that's what you're looking for.

You need to use "Sum" instead of "Count" in the above code.

Bah, need more coffee.

Scott is correct, Sum handles the 1's and 0's, whereas Count would count them both.

Actually, I have the option to do it in either place. Does not matter. It get imbedded into additional software.

Yes.  I'll repeat the T-SQL, Scott should get partial credit in this deal...

SELECT
  Sum(CASE WHEN Quote='Yes' THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) as 'yes_total',
  Sum(CASE WHEN Quote='No' THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) as 'No_total',
  Sum(CASE WHEN Quote='Drop' THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) as 'drop_total',
  Sum(CASE WHEN Quote='Self' THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) as 'self_total'
FROM NewBusinessLineItem

>Actually, I have the option to do it in either place.
Do it in SQL then.

Good deal.

<my opinion>

Equally between the first two comments, which were correct except for count/sum and a minute a part, and ScottPletcher's comment with the Sum catch, would be fine.

I did forget to ask, how to do a column that has the total in it. is it something like this...

 Sum(CASE WHEN Quote <> " " THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) as 'Total Quoted'

Just add it to the SELECT clause.
Keep in mind if there is any value other than Yes, No, Drop, or Self (like 'Banana') then the total will not match the sum of the rest.

SELECT
  Sum(CASE WHEN Quote='Yes' THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) as 'yes_total',
  Sum(CASE WHEN Quote='No' THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) as 'No_total',
  Sum(CASE WHEN Quote='Drop' THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) as 'drop_total',
  Sum(CASE WHEN Quote='Self' THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) as 'self_total',
  Sum(CASE WHEN Quote <> " " THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) as 'Total Quoted'
FROM NewBusinessLineItem

Thanks Jim, but the field selector up front is a drop down list maintained by me, so no other choices......
