Ok I tried a couple of things, and I keep getting the same result. I tried using the distinct option, but it didn't result in any changes. I also found a way to add the unique ID field from sharepoint to be certain I was counting a field with unique values, and pointed my count command at that. I am still getting the same incorrect result. Here's what I am currently working with for my expression:
Count ( if(((ows_Task_x0020_Completed = '') and (ows_Task_x0020_Created < Today())),ows_ID
Any other thoughts?
