Lol, well you could've taken it from there John :

PatternCount(textField ; "U" ) & " U's " & PatternCount(textField ; "M" ) & " M's " & PatternCount(textField ; "ALT" ) & " ALT "

U, M, or ALT. I would like to have a count of each of the three entries--for example, 10 U's, 15 M's, 8 ALT.

You know, I'm not sure you fellas are answering the question that he intended to ask. The title of his post makes me think that you've answered correctly but the wording in the body leads me to think that he may really want to know how many *records* have the value "U" and how many *records* have the value "M" and how many *records* have the vaule "ALT".

Maybe I'm wrong.

Sorry Alex,

: I was half brain-dead yesterday (I'm brain-dead to begin with so that doesnt leave much room). I didnt get any sleep because of a really early flight.
