Oops. I spoke too soon. This didn't quite get it. My results came back with column 3 and 4 having the exact same number in them for each record rather than column 3 having the count of status 3's and column 4 having a count of the status 4's.
I've tried messing with the left join syntax trying to make it happen, but, I'll be honest with you, I've never used a left join before. Thanks again for your help.
