Count specify occurrences in portal



I collect data in forests, sampling many trees in each plot for their DBH (diameter at breast height). In a plot I may measure a couple of dozen trees, and of course several will have the same diameter.

In my FMP report I want to show the DBH, and number of trees at that diameter. In one record something like: SS; 25;11,0.403;4.433. Which are Species; DBH; Volume per tree; volume per class, respectively.

I'm pulling the data from a main table which contains all the information downloaded from my electronic callipers, and I've created a self join and portal to bring some of the information across. In short I'm getting separate occurrences for the similar DBH's. The example above would give me 11 instances (in separate records) of DBH 25.

Can anyone steer me in the right direction to get what I want? Is my logic off? 

My other issue with this is that the DBH's are random, and the number of separate DBH's of course vary from plot to plot. I need my report to show just the correct number of lines. In other words Plot one may have 12 separate DBH classes, and the next plot may just have 6 separate DBH classes. In this case I'd just like to see 12 and 6 lines on each report. (Perhaps I should post this as a separate thread?

Any help gratefully received.
