Count Records in a Table or Query with Criteria

 S  M  L  XL  FS  Join Now

In this video, I will show you how to count up values from a table or query. We will count up the total number of orders that a customer has and display them on the customer form.

Roberto from Silver City, New Mexico (a Gold Member) asks: I'd like to be able to quickly see the total number of orders that a customer has when I open up their record in the customer form. Right now, I have to open up the order form and look at the number on the bottom. This would save me a lot of time.


Members will see how to use DCount to limit the number of records in a related table (such as in a subform). This would be handy to, for example, set a maximum number of students per class, or a minimum number of items per order. We'll also see how to refresh a parent form when a child form is closed, and put that order count in the button caption. We'll also discuss why you should not use D-functions in queries (use aggregate queries instead).

Silver Members and up get access to view Extended Cut videos, when available. Gold Members can download the database template from class plus get access to the Code Vault.

Brent I think it's you.  Worked fine for me.

I'm assuming you are referencing the extended video.  Are you playing from YT or here on the LZ page?
Might try shutting down your browser.  Possibly a restart of Windows.
You might even have to clear cookies and site data.
