How can I create fields that count assets for an account

I need to create total fields in accounts that sum up all the assets of a particular type that that customer owns. Is there any way to do this? A report doesn't do the trick, because I need to use the total values in workflow rules.



Have you considered having a trigger on the Asset update the field on the Account?

I would also like to know how to do this? You would think by now Salesforce.com would have a Count function.


I would rather not use a trigger for this.
