Jon,

I was very suprised by your statement 'Use the COUNT command with a range to count all the distinct values.' Are you saying that if there were five people in the case, all from the same town, that a count command would return a value of 1? My understanding of the manual is that it would return a value of 5--assuming that the value of the town code was between the range specified.
