Composite query criteria

Composite query criteria

Composite query criteria

In a Customers form I have two fields, a name in AccountManager and a tick box for Sponsor.

I'm using the AccountManager name as criterion for a query that selects customers assigned to that person. So far easy. But, any customers marked Sponsor also needs to be included in one person's output, for example.

So in simplified form the query is on a table like this, with fields AccountManager, Sponsor, Customer and with Dave been the person who needs to include all sponsors.

Mike Yes Customer1
Mike No Customer2
Mike No Customer3
John Yes Customer4
John No Customer5
Dave Yes Customer6
Dave No Customer7
Dave Yes Customer8

The results when passing different names to the query need to be like this

If Mike, Customers 1, 2, 3
If John, Customers 4, 5
If Dave, Customers 1, 4, 6, 7, 8

How do I create criteria so that everyone other than Dave only get people assigned to them but Dave also gets anyone ticked as Sponsor?

RE: Composite query criteria

So your data looks like this?

AccountManager  Sponsor  Customer   ???
Mike             Yes     Customer   1
Mike              No     Customer   2
Mike              No     Customer   3
John             Yes     Customer   4
John              No     Customer   5
Dave             Yes     Customer   6
Dave              No     Customer   7
Dave             Yes     Customer   8
Is Mike a Sponsor? Or Customer (1) is a Sponsor?

And what makes Dave so 'special' that "Dave also gets anyone ticked as Sponsor" ?

Have fun.

RE: Composite query criteria

Hi Andrzejek

Your ???? column doesn't exist. What I meant by the line 'If Mike, Customers 1, 2, 3' was that if Mike is chosen, the query returns Customer1, Customer2, Customer3.

Some customers are also sponsors so Mike is account manager for Customer1 who is also a sponsor. Customer2 isn't a sponsor, etc.

Dave handles all customers who are sponsors as well as any who he is account manager for.

RE: Composite query criteria


As I said, the query uses a parameter value on the AccounManager field that is taken from a form, ie forms!frmCustomers.AccountManager.

If this parameter is say John won't your where clause just pick Customer4 and miss Customer5?

RE: Composite query criteria

OK, I think I've got it. Case of avoiding syntax errors in a complex Where condition.

CODE -->

SELECT qryAllActions.FirstName, qryAllActions.Surname, qryAllActions.AccountManager, qryAllActions.Sponsor
FROM qryAllActions
WHERE (((IIf([forms]![frmEntries].[AccountManager]="Dave",[AccountManager]=[forms]![frmCustomers].[AccountManager] Or [Sponsor]=Yes,([AccountManager]=[forms]![frmCustomers].[AccountManager])))<>False));
