MS Access 2010 Record button

Screenshot.pngI'm super beginner for MS Access and need to know how to add button to record a count.
I just need a simple button to push when I receive some calls and count a call at the end of month.

If all you want to do is to record the fact that you had a call rather than anything about it, you can use something like this in the click event of a button.

Dim strSQL as String

strSQL = "INSERT INTO tblCallLog ( UserID, CallReceived ) SELECT " & Me.UserID & " AS Expr1,  Now() AS Expr2;"
DoCmd.RunSQL strSQL

You need to be more specific, ...but I will presume that you need the End of the current month

In any event, ... (as far as I can tell), all you need to do is count the records currently in the table (for the current month)
So on the Onclick event of your button do something like this:
MsgBox DCount("*", "YourTable", "Month(YourDate)=" & Month(Date) & " And " & "Year(YourDate) =" & Year(Date))

Now you can take this "count":
DCount("*", "YourTable", "Month(YourDate)=" & Month(Date) & " And " & "Year(YourDate) =" & Year(Date))

...and insert it into the SQL that Pat posted


If this is what you wanted, ...I am sure Pat can help you refine this...
