    Summarizing Yes/No data (MS Access 2000)

    I'm trying to summarize a series of yes/no fields in a report. I've been trying variations on using Count or DCount([FieldName]='1), etc., without success. Is there a simple way to provide summary information for this data type?

    Thanks in advance. This is a great site!

    You should be able to just Sum the field. True = -1 and False =0, so all you need to do is multiple the Sum by -1.

    It worked like a charm. Funny how simple the solution seems after somebody shows you the way, isn't it?

    Thanks a million,
