Here’s an all-database solution that does what you want, I think.  I’m no expert on databases, so there may very well be ways of doing this with fewer records.
The ‘count’ record increments each time it’s processed unless the ‘clear’ record has pushed a 1 into the ‘C’ field.

record(bi, "$(user):now") {
    field(PINI, "YES")
    field(SCAN, "10 second")
    field(FLNK, "$(user):day")
}
record(stringin, "$(user):day") {
    field(DTYP, "Soft Timestamp")
    field(INP,  "@%j")
    field(TSEL, "$(user):now.TIME")
    field(FLNK, "$(user):clear")
}
record(calcout, "$(user):clear") {
    field(INPA, "$(user):day NPP MS")
    field(INPB, "1000")
    field(CALC, "A<B;B:=A")
    field(OOPT, "When Non-zero")
    field(OCAL, "1")
    field(OUT,  "$(user):count.C PP")
}
record(calc, "$(user):count") {
    field(VAL,  "0")
    field(TPRO, 1)
    field(CALC, "C?0:VAL+1;C:=0")
}

Hi all,
I'd like to create a database record that counts based on a forward link. This record would need to reset back to zero 
at 12AM every day. 

Use case, is where a beam line user hits a reset button repeatably (tied to a bo record) as a work around for something that is broken.
I'd like to track these resets.

Is there a way to do this with base?
I'm considering writing a C subroutine for this is it doesn't already exist.

Cheers!
