Summary fields are pretty dumb and they need to be told exactly what to count.

The way to tell them is to do one of the following:

Place then in a sub-summary part of a printed layout which is sorted by the break field. They will then display the correct counts of that sub-summary group.

The other way is to setup calculated fields and use the GetSummary function. Using the summary field and the break field as parameters.

Also, if you don't want to summarise the whole database, perform a find that gets the records you *do* want to work with, then generate the summary.
