I am trying to get this query to work and I am getting this error on this part...


ISNULL((SELECT SUM(dbo_pm30200.DOCAMNT) FROM dbo_PM30200
WHERE SUBSTRING(dbo_pm30200.DOCNUMBR,5,3) = "LDG" and dbo_upr00100.employid = dbo_pm30200.vendorid),0)

It says that it doesn't recognize SUBSTRING().

SUBSTRING
---------
APR-LDG
MAY LDG
OCT/LDG
LDG ACD
FEB LDG 02

(5) Records.


What else could I use instead?

ok,

the name of your table is 'dbo_pm30200', and the name of the field is 'DOCNUMBR', correct?


does this query work?

SELECT dbo_pm30200.DOCNUMBR
FROM dbo_pm30200
WHERE (((dbo_pm30200.DOCNUMBR) Like "*ldb*"));

It seems like you can not have a query inside of a query.

For example:

SELECT RTRIM(LASTNAME) + ', ' + RTRIM(FRSTNAME)
    + ' ' + RTRIM(MIDLNAME) AS NAME, INACTIVE, ISNULL
        ((SELECT (dbo_UPR00400.MTDWAGES_1 + dbo_UPR00400.MTDWAGES_2+ dbo_UPR00400.MTDWAGES_3 + dbo_UPR00400.MTDWAGES_4+ dbo_UPR00400.MTDWAGES_5 + dbo_UPR00400.MTDWAGES_6+ dbo_UPR00400.MTDWAGES_7 + dbo_UPR00400.MTDWAGES_8+ dbo_UPR00400.MTDWAGES_9 + dbo_UPR00400.MTDWAGES_10+ dbo_UPR00400.MTDWAGES_11 + dbo_UPR00400.MTDWAGES_12) AS Wages
FROM dbo_UPR00400
WHERE dbo_UPR00100.EMPLOYID = dbo_UPR00400.EMPLOYID AND
dbo_UPR00400.PAYTYPE = 5 AND
dbo_UPR00400.PAYRCORD = '1SPSES'), 0) As PDTotal
FROM dbo_UPR00100 INNER JOIN dbo_UPR00400 ON dbo_UPR00400.EMPLOYID = dbo_UPR00100.EMPLOYID
ORDER BY dbo_UPR00100.EMPLOYID;


Is there a way to do it in Access?
