Problem Making Grade Book


     Hi.  I have been using filemaker for a little while but have been learning on the fly because I get so busy.  Our grading has changed so I am trying to make a new grade book for my iPad.  One of the things that I am trying to improve upon is to get a field that totals the number of occurrences from my attendance fields that occur.

     Example:  If Student is absent then "AB" would be selected from the pull down that the value list the field is associated with.  Or, if a student was tardy, "T" would be selected.  I want to be able to have an active count of all the different occurences to track attendance and behaivior.  

     I have taken snap shots of what it looks like.  I am not sure what I am doing wrong.  I have tried different combinations.  I watched videos to help myself learn the program and it said that you can have an either or result but it doesn't work when I  Case ( Week1Day1 = "AB" ; AbsentCount + 1; AbsentCount + 0 )  So if another option is chosen like "T" or because there was an entry error, it still adds +1.

     Hope this makes sense?

     Thank you for your time and help.
