Counting points in buffers

Hi All,


Up until now, everyone on this forum has saved my bacon, so I thougt I would try my luck again! I am counting facilites (points) within buffers using spatial joing and sum, the problem, however, is this: when I do a 'blind eye' count, the count is 2, for example, in buffer A yet when I look at the spatial join count it shows as 10! Could someone suggest why this would occur? The points are listed as "multipoints" in the geography type, would this distort the count and if yes, how do I rectify this issue?


Thanking you in advance!
