Displaying different query results on one form

Displaying different query results on one form

Displaying different query results on one form


I need to show the number of records that are past a certain date and display this number on a single form

For instance.

Show the number of properties that have gas checks due
Show the number of properties that have electric checks due

I have achieved this by placing sub forms on a form, with each subform based on an appropriate query.

It seems a bit of a messy way to do it and space wise the sub forms eat into the form real estate.

Is there a better approach to take ?

Many thanks mark.

RE: Displaying different query results on one form

If the form's record source contains all the records and fields needed, you could use a simple text box. The control source depends on your data. If you have an un-normalized table with a yes/no field named [gas checks due], your control source would be:

CODE --> ControlSource

=Sum(Abs([gas checks due])) 

This might be the most efficient solution but depends on your tables and record sources.

Thanks guys - in this instance the DCount was just what I needed.

Many thanks to you both. Mark
