Dear All,

I have a table with the following fields.  I'm trying to count the number of times the same string appears in ItemID, the same string in ModelID for each LocationID.

ID (Number)
ItemID (String)
LocationID (Number)
ModelID (String)

I've tried:

SELECT Count([Table1].ItemID) AS ItemCount, Count([Table1].ModelID) AS ModelCount, [Table1].LocationID
FROM 
(SELECT DISTINCT [Table1].LocationID FROM  [Table1] );

Open in new window




The error states Query does not include LocationID as part of Aggregate function.  

Thanks
