How to count specific records and put them in a separate table

P: 2
I am uploading an issue log weekly into access. It's a list of numbered tickets from which I can derive which tickets are planned to go into our production system and when (which week of the year) and which tickets got closed and when (in a specifc week of the year).
On my reports I can do a DCOUNT to have a count of "planned" and "closed" tickets per week(number).

I really want to do that count on the original table and put the results in a separate table and work from there.

So far I was not lucky doing so using the count function in queries. Anybody has some tips?

The basic rule is you don't store calculated values in the tables. It's too difficult to monitor data integrity. Calculated values should only be calculated as and when required.
