Use this code in the OnLoad event of the Main form:

    Const FormCaption = "There are {0} records entered into the system"
    Dim DetailCount As Long
    ' Get count.
    DetailCount = DCount("*", "PageLog")
    ' Insert count and apply caption.
    Me!lblDetail.Caption = Replace(FormCaption, "{0}", CStr(DetailCount))

or, assuming that

DetailCount = me.recordsetclone.Recordcount

I use this a lot for sub-forms that contain datasheets, where I want to display the count of records displayed in the datasheet.  In this case, I also use code similar to Gustav's and use the datasheet forms ApplyFilter event to call this code again, so that the count stays up-to-date, even after the datasheet has been filtered.
