hi - what would be the best way to return a count(*) from several tables, which would reflect the monthly activity on each of those tables, for displaying in a single monthly activity report?

i have for example:

select count(*) from table1 where datecreated between @startdate and @enddate
select count(*) from table2 where datecreated between @startdate and @enddate

etc

but reporting services will only see the first of these.
thanks for any help...
