Subquery issue

Deb

I built a crosstab query, and want to build another query which pulls the
crosstab information plus Unit Cost from another query. Code is as follows:

SELECT ctqry_MthDrmPriority.Division, ctqry_MthDrmPriority.Program,
ctqry_MthDrmPriority.[1], ctqry_MthDrmPriority.[2], ctqry_MthDrmPriority.[3],
ctqry_MthDrmPriority.CASREP, ctqry_MthDrmPriority.DTO,
FROM (SELECT sqry_MonthlyRpt.UnitCost FROM sqry_MonthlyRpt WHERE Division =
sqry_MonthlyRpt.Division) AS [Sum of Unit Costs] ctqry_MthDrmPriority,
GROUP BY ctqry_MthDrmPriority.Division, ctqry_MthDrmPriority.Program,
ctqry_MthDrmPriority.[1], ctqry_MthDrmPriority.[2], ctqry_MthDrmPriority.[3],
ctqry_MthDrmPriority.CASREP, ctqry_MthDrmPriority.DTO
HAVING (((ctqry_MthDrmPriority.[1]) Is Not Null)) OR
(((ctqry_MthDrmPriority.[2]) Is Not Null)) OR (((ctqry_MthDrmPriority.[3]) Is
Not Null)) OR (((ctqry_MthDrmPriority.CASREP) Is Not Null)) OR
(((ctqry_MthDrmPriority.DTO) Is Not Null))
ORDER BY ctqry_MthDrmPriority.Division, ctqry_MthDrmPriority.Program;

I think using a subquery is the way to go, and I've tried several different
angles. The latest error message is:

"The SELECT statement includes a reserved word or an argument name that is
misspelled or missing, or the punctuation is incorrect."

I've checked for misspellings, and am just unsure if the punctuation is
incorrect or if something is missing. Of course, the subquery might even be
in the wrong place, I just don't know.

Please advise.

I think you got to have an alias ---
FROM (SELECT sqry_MonthlyRpt.UnitCost FROM sqry_MonthlyRpt WHERE Division =
sqry_MonthlyRpt.Division) AS [Sum of Unit Costs] ctqry_MthDrmPriority,
GROUP BY ...

FROM (SELECT [XYZ].UnitCost FROM sqry_MonthlyRpt AS [XYZ] WHERE
[XYZ]Division = sqry_MonthlyRpt.Division) AS [Sum of Unit Costs]
ctqry_MthDrmPriority
GROUP BY ...

You have to remove comma after ctqry_MthDrmPriority and the subquery needs
to be joined to ctqry_MthDrmPriority.

Hi Deb,
a quick look showed an extra comma in the 3rd line of the first select
statement.

ctqry_MthDrmPriority.DTO,
See the comma at the end of DTO in the line above

You join two tables/queries like this --
FROM Table1 INNER JOIN Table2 ON Table1.FieldX = Table2.FieldY

If you do not join you will create a Cartesian effect that will produce
records amounting to the quanity in one table multiplied by the quanity in
the other.

Thanks Karl. Error message - "Syntax Error in FROM Clause" and
"ctqry_MthDrmPriority" was highlighted. ??? Also, how do you "join" a
subquery to the main query???

Karl: Thanks again. I certainly don't want that Cartesian effect!!

Would the "join clause" go before the "(Select sqry_MonthlyRpt.UnitCost ...)
or after that. I hate being such a dunce, but flailing around with all of
these little patches has really got me down!

Thank you Jeanette! Karl previously caught that, but if you see anything
else that might get me past this dilemma, please feel free to point out
anything that may help!
