I have an Access table called 'Orders'.
One of the fields in this table is called 'Department'

There are 8 departments.
5 of the 8 departments are considered 'green'. And so any orders for these departments get a green tag placed on the box.
The other 3 are 'red'; any orders from these 3 departments get a red tag.

I know you can create a running total in Access, but how can I replace a Conditional running total?

In other words, let's say at the end of the week there were 25 green orders and 10 red orders.
At the bottom of the report I want to show two fields:
- Total Count of Green tags: 25
- Total Count of Red tags: 10
