I know that DCount will count the number of records in a specified table or query with optional criteria, but is there a way to count the number of records that a given *SQL Statement* would output?  Is there a simplier way then having to open a recordset?

Select Count(*) as RecCount FROM <table> WHERE < >

but you'd need to open a recordset to get that, which would be comprised of one record with the count.
