Jason thanks for the quick reply,
Still no go it shows 0 as the total.
How does the recordset know which date to look at?
heres the up dated file.
Ok I tried something that may or may not tellyou something. I put 1 in each row under the Air column. There are about 65 or so rows only 5 of which have the same date(month,day,year.ampm columns). the numCount binding is displaying 40 as the total. My inferior brain is still saying how does it know which date?
