I have a table with birthdays in, the format is mm/dd/yyyy. I have a query that formats this date to mm/dd as a new field then i have a form with a command button that appends these fields, along with others into a new table. After appending the records, I want a message box telling me if the count of mm/dd is greater than 6. Can someone give me some suggestions? I can't seem to get the DCount to count the mm/dd field.
