Hi teju,

1. What do you need the query to do?
It can CREATE a new table, it can UPDATE an existing one, it can just SELECT items from a table and display it on screen through a Form or Report etc,.

2. What is the field that should be used to determine the FistIN (for the FIFO)? Is it field Date from Table Transaction?

Hi Tejas,

Whenever I get really complex queries I try to break them down into easier to manage sub-steps.  To do FIFO you'll need a date & time stamp - so you'll know which one to grab (or you could use the record # since they are in sequence too).  {To everyone reading this FIFO means First In First Out}.

Often I'll create a query that queries another query (& even sometimes queries it yet another time to get to the solution I want).

OR if you feel more comfortable (seems like your doing a lot - making this the right answer) --> Create an Access VBA function or sub that goes through step by step creating your answer (ie, build a table with the answer set then you can do a simple query to that).  I've found this to be the easiest way to handle these types of things.

Rgds,
DevAlex

Hi teju,

To get this:

Date       Script     Qnt     Rate      Amount
31/07/00   R
31/07/00   T
31/07/00   A

Use,

QueryTrans:
SELECT Transaction.Date, Transaction.Script, Transaction.Qty, Transaction.Rate, Transaction.Amount
FROM Transaction
WHERE Date >= #07/01/00# AND Date <= #07/31/00#
ORDER BY Date;

Note that the date format is mm/dd/yy. You should use this format even if your regional settings are set to something differen (e.g. dd/mm/yy).

Hope this helps,

Nosterdamus
