For a list of unique values:

SELECT DISTINCT fieldName FROM tableName;

For a count of unique values:

SELECT Count(*) AS N
FROM
(SELECT DISTINCT fieldName FROM tableName) AS T;

is this what you are looking for

SELECT dbo_itemx.Sequencenumber, Count(dbo_itemx.Sequencenumber) AS CountOfSequencenumber
FROM dbo_itemx
GROUP BY dbo_itemx.Sequencenumber;

or maybe this is what you need

SELECT Q.Sequencenumber,
(select count(*) from
(SELECT dbo_itemx.Sequencenumber
FROM dbo_itemx
GROUP BY dbo_itemx.Sequencenumber
)  as Q1 where Q1.SequenceNumber<=Q.SequenceNumber) AS Expr1
FROM
(SELECT dbo_itemx.Sequencenumber
FROM dbo_itemx
GROUP BY dbo_itemx.Sequencenumber
) as Q;



it will help if you post a desired outcome/output

You could use a function, see fnUniqueRowCount() in the attached database.

Add a control to your report, set the ControlSource to:

=fnUniqueRowCount([UniqueFieldName])

Then, change the Hide Duplicates (towards the bottom of the Format tab on the Properties dialog form) property to Yes.

Then, to make sure this works in normal view, report view, and print preview, you will need to call the function from the Report Open and Report Footers Format events, with the following code:

=fnuniquerowcount(Null,True)

This will reset the counter when the report is opened or when the report footer is formatted.  The reason for the latter is that when you view the report in print preview, it runs through the report twice and if you don't reset the counter at the end of the report, the numbers will start a the last number + 1
