Access 2003, Need Report To Show Total Count

At work, we use an access database to track our computer inventory. I have created a report that shows a list of the computers, but I would love for this report to show the number of computers we have. I'm not sure if this is done on the report, the table, or both.

Count Values in Totals for Reports
How does count values for totals in layout view work? I was hoping that it would count unique values in a column - but it does not appear to. I have an ID number column in my report - and the report is sorted by date. The same person/ID can have activity on several different dates. so they can have multiple rows in the report. I am trying to count each unique ID number in this report so I can provide a unique headcount for this report. I tried count values, and it gives me the same number as count records. Is there a way to count unique values in a column to show a total at the end of the report


Access 2003 reports in forms and record counts
First off, and I'm sure this is incredibly easy but I can't seem to find a way, I have an existing table with around 5 thousand entries and I'm looking to run reports that return the total number of records for certain criteria, my background is in Excel and I know how to do what I want in that easily enough and for just nowI've put a non visible box with control source as =1 and a grand total box in the report footer with control source as =[record count].

This kind of works ok apart from still returning avalue of 1 when no records show up and that it's just a clumsy work around so could anyone give any help on how to do this better?
Also I'm looking to have reports as normal but also the option to just view a summary form with only what criteria has been used and a total record count so help with this would also be very much appreciated.

Oh one last thing, is there any way to change a report title based on criteria used, I.e. I want a report title to be "Total Outputs between [Start Date] and [End Date]" or something along those lines.


Access 2007-Report by Month; Year to Date Total
Returning Access user after a two-year absence.

Report to show the following:

Month | Count Expected Shorted Over
Jan | 100 | 200 | 100
Feb | 250 | 200 | 50
Mar | 50 | 200 | 150
etc.

Yearly Total: 400 | 200 | 250 | 50

Count is the number of appointments scheduled for a month. I know how to get the calculations done. It is showing the constant data that I don't remember how to.

Would it be best to query the data for a count and then actually place the above data on a worksheet in Excel?


Counts & Calcuations in Select Query
I have a simple select query using one table and the fields below:

Company Name
Description
Decision Code

I need to show by COMPANY the Total count of DECISION CODES and of those the Total count that were "REJECT".

I would then like to take the Total Reject and / Total Number for a percentage.

Company Description Total Count Reject Count Percentage
Example: Acxiom 123acx 1,273 53 4.16%

I havn't used Access since 03 and am trying to get back in the saddle


Count data by using a query
This article explains how to count the data returned by a query. For example, on a form or report, you can count the number of items in one or more table fields or controls. You can also calculate average values, and find the smallest, largest, earliest, and latest values. In addition, Microsoft Office Access 2007 provides a new feature called the Total Row that you can use to count data in a datasheet without having to alter the design of your query.
What do you want to do?

Not Null Count
I'm having some issues with a count function within my report. My report is a set of flights grouped by commander. Within the commander footer I want to show the percentage of their flights for which there is an attached comment. At the minute however I am unable to even count the number of Not Null entries in the comment field. The expression I'm using is

=Count(Not IsNull(Trim$([Comments])))
however this is simply giving the total count including all the blank entries.


New page generates for count total
In Access 2007, I created a report list that counts the number of records. I made the list two columns. However, the count total is generated on a new page, not below the last record at the end of the second column.

There is space for it (The second column ends about half-way down the page). How do I get the record count total to display under the last record listed instead ofa new page?


Total a column, data type is causing problem
I have a inventory count column called sum(the amount of stock), a price column, and a total column
ex:
sum price total
1 $10 $10
0 $5 $0
2 $2 $4

what I'd like is for a grand total to be shown in a report or at the bottom, for this example, $14

the total column is made with a query, multiplying price and sum sum is also a query, adding up the total amount of different stock

currently I had to re-format my total column Total:Format(price*sum),'currency'

When I have tried to do this, I clicked the total button, but my only option is for a count, I need to sum the values, not count how many there are. I am pretty sure it is because the totalcolumn is not actually a price format

I could also just have a report that lists this grand total, but I came up with the same problem.


sort by sum of a field
I have a table with several thousand records with the following fields:

username, job, total pages

What I want to do is group the records by username, then count the total of all grouped records of the total pages field to get a sum. Then I need to sort the results of the total of the "total pages field in decending order. I got a report to show me the summary of the user name and jobs, and to show the total from the totalpages, but how do you sort the report on the total pages by decending order?


Counting Unique Records in a Report
I have a report that I put together with totals at the bottom.

This is a detail report that reflects [Card Number] and [Amount] so at the bottom I have a total transaction text box that works fine.

I would also like to capture the total [Card Number]. However, since the same card number can show up several times, I don't get the actual count.

Can you count just the unique records in a report from a text box?


Access 2007 reports to display rows based on date range given by user
I am stuck for many days now.

What is easiest way where I can run the report showing three variables (Total Count, Total Count of Males, and Total Count of Females) based on user input for date range provided.

EntryDate is date column in table.
Sex is the column where Male or Female is stored as text


getting a total number of fields in a report
I want to produce a report that gives me a total number of our clients, like
Total number of current clients .XX
Total number of current male clients .XY
Total number of current female clients. YY
Total number of discharged clients.ZZ
plus a few more totals

I have made queries for all these but how do I get a total figure to appear in a report?

I know this might be a simple process but I cant get my head around it. Have tried sum and count in the query, but should I do this in the report?


Using IF statement associated with Count
I have a report that totals the number of items for a given site [site_cd]. I have a Site_Cd header and I am using the [=Count(*)] to give me the total. However I want the total to be based on the number of units at the site and was wondering if I could use an IF statement to accomplish this. For example, if the site_cd is "O" the total should be devided by 3, if "M" or "C" divided by 2, otherwise just the total count.

I am not good with IF statements. I am open to another approach if there is a better and easier one


Counting from a Field not Linked to a Report
What I'm trying to do is show how many records there are listed on a report AND how many there are in all (listed + not listed, like "64 out of 68"). I've got the first part working fine with =count(*) in a textbox, but I can't seem to get a textbox to show the total number of records.

I've tried getting it to count records from the original table, and then I tried counting from a different query that lists every record, but both tries came up with only the number of records on the report, not the total. I can see that this might be restricted by the query that the report is linked to, but I did get this to work once. .for about 1 minute, at which time the program crashed. I hadn't saved it in time, and apparently I can't remember exactly what I did. It was something along the lines of: "=([Text1]+[OtherReport]![Text2])"

Any ideas that might


Report filter on Totals
I have a report that Totals and Groups based on the entry description in order to give me the total number of each like occurrence. It does this in the Description Footer using a text box with this formula =Count([Description]).

Does anyone know the best way to then filter that report to only show line the items where that Count is >5 and otherwise omit the entry from thereport?


Problem using DCount in Access 2003
I am trying to use DCount to count the number of results in a particular query that have a specific value. I have looked carefully at the syntax of examples online and cannot find the problem. Running the report simply returns #error.

I have a query "Enquiries between dates" which returns all the enquiries between a particular set of enquiry dates.

I have a report linked to this query. In the footer of the report I use =Count(*) to return the total number of results in the query. That works fine.


Count occurences of text in a query
I am running a totals report from a couple different tables. Most of my data is numeric, which is easy to total, but one of the totals I need is text. The text is called Sight Action, which for each entry the users would make, they would choose from a list that includes Sight Action amongst other choices. I need to be able to total up how may times in a month, the option Sight Action had been chosen. The table is called tblCallType, with Radio Call, Sight Action, Assist, and N/A as option. When the user enters a record, they have to pick one of these options. The only one I need to report on is Sight Action, but I cant figure out how to total that in a query. For example, if the user enters 100 records for the month of February, and 25 of those records were marked with Sight Action, I need 25 to show on the report. I tried the Count function, but it returns a number that isnt the total and I cant figure out what it could be totaling


Query to provide total and breakdown counts
My table has a category field and a status field. Each category can have up to four statuses (open/closed/hold/resolved). I have a query that will provides a breakdown of the table by category and within each category, it lists the total count of each type of status.

My dilemma is that I would like to have a line at the end of each category that will count/sum up each status applicable to that category for a total count. I would then like to have a toal count at the end of the report.

I'm looking for something like this:

202 Request

Open 1
Closed 2
Hold 1
Resolved 1

Total 5

And so on.

To date I have been unsuccessfull in creating this code. All I can current get is everything above except the total line. Any and all help would be appreciated

Here is my query code

SELECT Calls.Category, Calls.Status, Count(Calls.Status) AS CountOfStatus, [Total Calls Query].CountOfID FROM Calls, [Total Calls Query] GROUP BY Calls.Category, Calls.Status, [Total Calls Query].CountOfID

Table Totals based on Criteria for report
VBA so hopefully somebody can understand my question.

I have a table I would like to extract totals from and insert into a report. I would like to know basically ie

total Count as integer
while (!end of table){

if table1.field1 = "EA" or if table1.field = "MA"
Count = Count +1
and go through the entire table and totaling the value.

I'd like to then insert this total into a report. I'm just verify unfamiliar with how to go about getting these totals. Should I even use VBA or is there a simpler method
