Count function in Access...help


Not sure if I'm in the right Forum, but here it goes. I thought I knew what I was doing apparently not.  I want to count the number of times a 'word' appears in a column.  Let's say I have a table called "January1", a column called "ItemCategory".  I want to 'count' the number of times 'word1' and 'word2' appears, and total them at the bottom of the table/report.

Is this on the right track?...=COUNT([ItemCategory])

Thanks in advance.   

RE: Count function in Access...help

No, you have the incorrect forum.  Look at the top of the web page.  There is a textbox followed by a drop-down which should say "Find A Forum."  In the textbox, type "Access", and then click the Search button to the right.  It should pull up a list of Access related forums.
