Using Count to display total at top of page prior to detail section

Crystal Reports 2016 SP4

I wish to display a count of records based on a certain criteria at the Top of the report before the detailed listing.  Is it appropriate to use the Count() function to accomplish this.

SQL Columns

Location   Trustee
A Block          N
A Block          Y
B Block          Y

So in this case I wish to display the count of  all Records where Trustee  is "Y".

Count of Trustee:  2

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The only option you have with COUNT is to count all records or count the non-null records.

YOu can accomplish what you want with a formula

Name - YesTrustee
If {TrusteeField} = 'Y' then

Open in new window

YOu can then use a summary SUM on that to get the count
