You're asking for two different types of data, aren't you?  

1) (single number) Records where compOwner contains 'Alan'

2) (array of numbers) Every invoice number where compOwner contains'Alan'

In fact, 1) could be rewritten as "how many invoices where compOwner
contains 'Alan'".

Just do a "select cmpInvoice where cmpOwner like '%Alan' ", and use the
number of rows returned as your total.
