Problem with SUM Query


D

dd

Hi,

In my building inspection database, I've created a query, based on a single
table, that adds up the values for repair works (Capital Cost) at each site
and based on my expression, assigns an overall condition category for each
site.

SELECT DISTINCTROW SurveyData.[Date of Survey], SurveyData.Site,
Sum(SurveyData.[Capital Cost]) AS [Sum Of Capital Cost], IIf([Sum Of Capital
Cost]>=10000,"C",IIf([Sum Of Capital Cost]<10000,"B")) AS [Overall
Condition]
FROM SurveyData
WHERE (((SurveyData.Condition)="c"))
GROUP BY SurveyData.[Date of Survey], SurveyData.Site
ORDER BY SurveyData.Site;

Each site is located within a subdivision and I want to group the sites by
their SubDivision in the Report. When I try to add this field from another
table the results either get screwed up showing multiple subdivisions for
each site, incorrect Capital Cost sums, or the query returns with zero
results.

SELECT DISTINCTROW SurveyData.[Date of Survey], Table2.SubDivision,
Table1.Site, Sum(SurveyData.[Capital Cost]) AS [Sum Of Capital Cost],
IIf([Sum Of Capital Cost]>=10000,"C",IIf([Sum Of Capital Cost]<10000,"B"))
AS [Overall Condition]
FROM SurveyData INNER JOIN (Table2 INNER JOIN Table1 ON Table2.ID =
Table1.Table2_ID) ON SurveyData.ID = Table1.ID
WHERE (((SurveyData.Condition)="c"))
GROUP BY SurveyData.[Date of Survey], Table2.SubDivision, Table1.Site
ORDER BY Table1.Site;

Try removing the DISTINCTROW clause. It did nothing in the first SQL
statement as it only hit one table.

In the second SQL statement it could bring in more data than you wanted plus
you already have a group by statement.

Jerry,

Thanks for your response. I tried this and it probably helps, but I see no
difference in the results. The query returns zero results. I enclose, below
clips of the three tables I am trying to use in the second SQL statement.

The statement now reads:
SELECT SurveyData.[Date of Survey], Table2.SubDivision, Table1.Site,
Sum(SurveyData.[Capital Cost]) AS [Sum Of Capital Cost], IIf([Sum Of Capital
Cost]>=10000,"C",IIf([Sum Of Capital Cost]<10000,"B")) AS [Overall
Condition]
FROM SurveyData INNER JOIN (Table2 INNER JOIN Table1 ON Table2.ID =
Table1.Table2_ID) ON SurveyData.ID = Table1.ID
WHERE (((SurveyData.Condition)="C"))
GROUP BY SurveyData.[Date of Survey], Table2.SubDivision, Table1.Site
ORDER BY Table2.SubDivision, Table1.Site;

Your sample data does not show any possible links between the tables. For
example you have the following record in SurveyData. It meets the requirement
of SurveyData.Condition)="C". So far so good.

1449 05/02/2006 Aberdeen 02 C 3
£5000.00

However there is no matching SurveyData.ID data to the Table1.ID field.
Further there is no data showing where Table2.ID = Table1.Table2_ID. So
unless your sample data does not depict where there is an actual join between
the tables, you will not get any returns when running the query. Instead you
may need a Left or Right join to return records; however, that could be
difficult while doing a totals query.

Table 1.Site is related to SurveyData.Site Table 2.Subdivision is related to
Table 1.Lookup to Table 2

Is this what you mean?

Problem solved.

I combined Table 1 and Table 2 into a query "Locations" and added it to my
Overall Condition query. I had to create a relationship within the query. It
seems to work fine.

SELECT SurveyData.[Date of Survey], Locations.SubDivision, Locations.Site,
Sum(SurveyData.[Capital Cost]) AS [Sum Of Capital Cost], IIf([Sum Of Capital
Cost]>=10000,"C",IIf([Sum Of Capital Cost]<10000,"B")) AS [Overall
Condition]
FROM SurveyData INNER JOIN Locations ON SurveyData.Site = Locations.Site
GROUP BY SurveyData.[Date of Survey], Locations.SubDivision, Locations.Site
ORDER BY Locations.SubDivision, Locations.Site;

I also removed the "C" criteria, becasue I want the total of all Capital
Costs to be analysed in the expression and not just the Catergory C items.
