WP_Query Results Issue with ACF


I have the following query set up

$  argsar = array ( 'numberposts'   => 1, 'post_type' => 'auctionroom', 'meta_key'  => 'auctionroom_username', 'compare' => '=', 'value'   => $  auctionroomname ); $  the_queryar = new WP_Query($  argsar); if ($  the_queryar->have_posts()) { $  causercheck = $  the_queryar->found_posts; $  the_queryar->the_post(); $  auctionroom_id = get_the_ID(); } 

It should only return 1 result but it is returning the total number of auctionroom posts when I get

$ causercheck = $ the_queryar->found_posts;

Having numberposts or not gives the same incorrect total

Thanks in anticipation for any clues
