SQL Select Distinct with MS Access

SQL Select Distinct with MS Access

SQL Select Distinct with MS Access

Hi there,

I have a table of data similar to this:

staffId    weekNumber    hoursWorked
1    24    41
1    25    12
2    24    36
3    24    29
2    24    39
4    25    18

Each row represents a shift.  What I need is to find out how many weeks a staff member has worked for us for.  I think this would work:

SELECT COUNT(DISTINCT weekNumber) FROM tblName WHERE staffId=3

However Access does not allow COUNT DISTINCT.  I have tried everything I can think of, can anyone shed any light?

Thanks, I have re-posted over there!
