Hi Experts,
I'm working on a report in Access 2010.  I have a question about the report.  This report has a field "Payment" is a Yes/No field.  for example, I have 50 records in this report that have either the payment is Yes or No, so all 50 will show Yes, No on each record, how do I do if I want all "Yes" in on left side of the report and all "No" on the right side of the report and get the percentage too.  Does any one have a sample of this kind of the report?

Thank you.

One easy way: have your report contain two subreports, one each for "Payment = Yes" and "Payment = No".  Place the subreport objects as desired.

You did not specify if this report had any "grouping"

If I am understanding correctly, ...you can get a count of yes and no with something like this:
Put a textbox in the report footer.
Name it: txtCountYes
Make the cobntrolsource something like this:
=Dcount("*","YourTable","Payment=-1")

Put a another textbox in the report footer.
Name it: txtCountNo
Make the cobntrolsource something like this:
=Dcount("*","YourTable","Payment=0")

Sorry, I did not read your post clearly.
If you need the percent yes/no, see the attached sample...(the report is named "Table1")

Hi Jeffrey,
I like your idea, but when I put the text box and on the controlsource, I put
=DCount("*","qryCollectAmount","SUPAYMENT= Y") it gave me "error" not a count, did I do anything wrong?

Thanks,

my query has parameters, I change to =count([SUPAYMENT]="Y")  but it gave me the wrong count.  I have one "Yes" and one "No" but when I use this :
Total of Yes:  =count([SUPAYMENT]="Y")
Total of No:   = count([SUPAYMENT]="N")
and I got both "2", it should be
Total of Yes:  1 not 2
Total of No:   1 not 2

You stated that this was a yes/No datatype:
This report has a field "Payment" is a Yes/No field.
Yes/No fiels in Access set Yes=-1 and No=0
...so when you say that you are doing this:
=DCount("*","qryCollectAmount","SUPAYMENT= Y")
It implies that the actual stored value is "Y" or "N"
If so, then try your expression like this:
=DCount("*","qryCollectAmount","SUPAYMENT= 'Y'")
?

So lets be clear
What is the Yes/No field defined as in the table?

Payment = SUPAYMENT (the SUPAYMENT is refer as Payment in the table), this field is store as either "Y"  or "N" in the table

Just FYI
The Count() function does not accept criteria,
So you can really only do this:
=Count(YourField)
If you need to specify a Where argument (SUPAYMENT="y")
Then you have to use dcount:
=DCount("*","qryCollectAmount","SUPAYMENT= 'Y'")

Payment = SUPAYMENT (the SUPAYMENT is refer as Payment in the table), this field is store as either "Y"  or "N" in the table

Then as I previously stated, this syntax should work:
=DCount("*","qryCollectAmount","SUPAYMENT= 'Y'")

if I removed the parameter in the query, then it works.  but if I have a parameter for the date range then it does not work.  do I need to entered anything for the date range?  my parameter in the query is Between [begindate] and [EndDate]

No difference
Make sure you have the spelling of the query correct.
...and make sure that "SUPAYMENT" is actually in the query and is spelled correctly as well.

again, without the parameter in the query, it works but once I  put the parameter back to the query, then it gave me "#Error" for the count.  I think it's the parameter problem but I  have to have the parameter in the query.

This is all new information...

In order to get this resolved a little quicker, ..can you post a small sample database that exhibits this behavior?

Hi Jeffrey,
Thanks so much for your help!!!  It finally works because I open the report from the form instead run the report from the report view, that's cause the error count.  Thanks again.
