Month-Year c/w Record Counter Query (MS Access vs Crystal)

Month-Year c/w Record Counter Query (MS Access vs Crystal)

Month-Year c/w Record Counter Query (MS Access vs Crystal)

(OP)

I just posted this question in the Access Forum as the data is within a MS Access database. It may be possible to get Access to perform this query however my thinking is that Crystal would be more suited for the job. Would designing this query in Crystal be less complex a task due the additional reporting features Crystal provides ? KMD
=====================================================================================================================================

The 'Parts' Table contains a Date Field called [PURDATE] which contains the date the part was purchased.

I need a query to display parts purchased as a function of year and month of the purchase :

YEAR_MONTH COUNT OF RECORDS
2018-JAN 596
2018-FEB 456


Any thoughts on how best to accomplish this ?

Displaying custom dates in Crystal is generally pretty easy and grouping by that date can be done.. Not sure where the count of records come from though

RE: Month-Year c/w Record Counter Query (MS Access vs Crystal)

You can use a command and create a query like :

CODE --> sql

select year(<datefield>) & ' - ' & monthname(<datefield>) as year_month, count(*) as count_of_records
from <tablename>
group by year(<datefield>) & ' - ' & monthname(<datefield>) 
or

CODE --> sql

select year_month, count(*) as count_of_records
from (
select year(<datefield>) & ' - ' & monthname(<datefield>) as year_month
from <tablename>) t
group by year_month 
I am not sure about the exact function names, but you can check them for MS Access.

Using Crystal to group the data is possible , but I doubt it will be easier or faster.
