I have a table called tblCustomers with a field called CustomerBalance.

I have a form called "Form1" which has a button!

When I click on the button I want to display the result of "Select count(*) from tblCustomers where CustomerBalance > 0".

The result should be displayed via a msgbox.

I know this is easy but how do I do it??

You could use DCount:

MsgBox "Count: " & DCount("*", "tblCustomers", "CustomerBalance > 0") & "."
