# Count on group footer

Hi Experts,
I'm working on a report and having problem to count on the group footer.  In the report, I have Date, TagNo, Chair (store as "C" in the table), Desk (store as "D" in the table).  My report only show Date, TagNo, Chair, Desk but group by Date.  so the Date has header and footer. here is the report look like:

1/2/15 (date)
C0001 (TagNo)          Chair (C)
C0002                         Desk (D)
C0003                         Chair (C)

I want to count how many chair and how many desk on this date, so on the Date footer will show : Total of Chair : 2  Total of Desk : 1

here is the code I put in the control source of the Text box on the Date footer:
Total of Chair: =Count([Type]="C")
Total of Desk: =Count([TYPE]="D")

but both show as 2 not one is 2 and one is 1, do not know why it happens.

Thanks,

Try something like this in the Date footer:

=Dcount("Type","YourTable","YourDate=" & "#" & YourDate & "#" & " AND Type='C'")
=Dcount("Type","YourTable","YourDate=" & "#" & YourDate & "#" & " AND Type='D'")

Use:

=Sum(IIF([Type]="C",1,0))

and:

=Sum(IIF([Type]="D",1,0))

Count(<expression>) just tally's up the count of records where a field (or fields) is not null.

What *exactly* is stored in the Type field?
"C" or "Chair"
"D" or "Desk"
or even:
"Chair (C)"
and
"Chair (D)"
My post presumes "C" or "D"

I think Jim's Post would works better for you.
My post presumes that you have no other filters in the Report's Recordsource (and was untested)
