I'm trying to count records where a field named [Sold Date] is not blank.

Here's my code I have in "Field" in the query designer but it isn't working...

CountSold: =(Count [ID] where [Sold Date]<>"*")

????

isdate( [Sold Date]) should work for date fields as well

CountSold: SUM(ABS(NZ([Sold Date],"")<> ""))

(You don't need a subquery)

if you are putting this in a control source, you would use the DCOUNT( ) domain function, something like:

Control Source: =DCOUNT("*", "yourTable", "[Sold Date] IS NOT NULL")
