I have the following working in a listbox's rowsource, I would like to modify to a DCount.

SELECT Count(*) AS CountOfDOS FROM TPatient LEFT JOIN TClaim ON TPatient.ID=TClaim.ID WHERE TPatient.ID=Forms!FPatientEntryQuery!ID And TClaim.ActiveClaim=True And [DOS]<DateAdd("d",-60,Date());

I am having issues with the quotes.  Can a Dcount be performed as this?  If so what would the proper syntax be?

You will need to create a query that joins TPatient and TClaim.

1. Create a query with this SQL syntax. Call it QPatientClaims:
SELECT TPatient.ID AS PatientID, TClaim.ActiveClaim, [DOS] FROM TPatient LEFT JOIN TClaim ON TPatient.ID=TClaim.ID;

Open in new window


2. Your DCount syntax will be:
DCount("*", "QPatientClaims", "PatientID=" & CStr(Forms!FPatientEntryQuery!ID) & " And ActiveClaim=True And [DOS]<DateAdd(""d"",-60,Date())")

Open in new window

An alternative to DCount:

Dim iCnt as integer

iCnt = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("SELECT Count(*) AS CountOfDOS FROM TPatient LEFT JOIN TClaim ON TPatient.ID=TClaim.ID WHERE TPatient.ID=Forms!FPatientEntryQuery!ID And TClaim.ActiveClaim=True And [DOS]<DateAdd('d',-60,Date())").Field(0)
Msgbox iCnt

Open in new window

Or you could use the specify the rowsource of your control (although it seems unusual that that your listbox rowsource only returns a single row showing the count).
iCnt = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset(Me.Listbox.Rowsource).Field(0)

Open in new window
