You're absolutely right, I started thinking about drilled holes and answered
incorrectly. 
This info isn't easy to obtain with 99SE, but it's not bad with DXP. I
loaded the same board into DXP and using a report generator, I told it to
list: Designator, Footprint and Quantity. I then indicated to group by
footprint, and it made a fairly short list. This was easy to view and
ascertain the requested SMT vs. THROUGH HOLD count. 

Footprint               Quantity

"0805"          "188"
"1210"          "3"
"CAPSMDB"               "5"
"CAPSMDC"               "4"
"CAPSMDF"               "1"
"QFP44"         "1"
"SO-8"          "18"
"SOT-23"                "2"
"SOT-23AK1"             "4"

"DO-41"         "1"
"IDC10"         "1"
"INDUCTOR0.4"   "3"
"JACK_VERT1A"   "6"
"LED_T-1"               "3"
"PANA1"         "8"
"POWER4_156"    "1"
"SIP9"          "2"
"TESTPOINT"             "1"
"TO-220"                "1"
"VR9"                   "8"
"XTAL1"         "1"

I think from this list it's pretty easy to tell ( I did a manual sort in
this email just to group the SMT footprints together so I could count them)
there are 226 SMT parts and 36 through hole parts.

Again, this was with DXP. I don't know how to generate something like this
with 99SE.

this doesn't show component count of each type which is what started this
thread and which is a cost driver for assembly rather than bare bd fab
