in the report, create an unbound textbox
set the control source to =1

set the Running Sum to Over All or over group

count how many records per page if  there's 10 records on a page the text box show display 10,if there's 8 then it should say 8, not looking for a running sum or group total.
running sum would be 18,if there one  group it would be 18 also and that's not what i am looking for i have those already.Thanks
i have no grouping levels on the report.

You'll have to do this in VBA.

Take a look at this article for the code, under the heading "Placing a Count in a Page Header or Footer":

One way:
Text box in detail:
    name: recSum ,  controlSource=1, Running Sum over all, visible: no

Text boxes in page footer:
    name: recPrev,  visible: no
    name: recPage

Private Sub PageFooterSection_Print(Cancel As Integer, PrintCount As Integer)
    Me.recPage = Me.recSum - Nz(Me.recPrev, 0)
    Me.recPrev = Me.recSum
End Sub

Open in new window
