Hello! I was wondering if there is a way to test for a certain amount of items in a players inventory. For example, if I have 64 (OR MORE) papers in my inventory, the command block will send out a redstone signal through a comparator. Please help, I am making a map and really need this. Thanks!

The 'b' is required, because minecraft is weird. However you shouldn't have quotes around anything in that tag. In the end you should get something looking like this:testfor @a {Inventory:[{id:"minecraft:paper",Count:64b}]}
It's worth noting that this will only work if a player has 64 papers in one item slot. If they're spread throughout their inventory, it won't detect them. That said, you won't be able to put multiple compounds together like BertieCrafter suggested, because with no slot tag defined the game will treat them all as the same thing. If that problem doesn't matter for your purposes, then you can leave it like it is. If you need a better method, I think I saw something about using stats to detect the number of items better somewhere, I'd have to dig it up though.

It gives me an error, and fails to work. It says "Data tag parsing failed: Unexpected token 'b' at: b"

Lol the best part is that the error is the most emphasized part

This for 1-64 items:
/testfor @a {Inventory:[

No, the b is not a typo, you need it.

For more items, you could try to test for multiple slots (e.g: 100 = 64 +36), but idk if it works:
/testfor @a {Inventory:[

Make sure to have no "," after the last one in the list.
