Min() problems in Group By... Having

I have a query that joins a couple of tables: invoice header and detail info. There are several fields of interest, including VendorName, InvBalance, InvDate.  There may be several entries in the detail table for an invoice as the balance gets paid off. I want to select the smallest balance remaining for any invoices with non-zero balances. I've tried using Min() with Group By and Having w/o much luck. Am I missing something or just going about it incorrectly?

This query returns all lines with AmountInvoiced > 0, not just the Min.

INSERT INTO POCash ( PONum, VendorName, ReqDate, InvBalance )
SELECT [PO2_PurchaseOrderEntryLine].[PurchaseOrderNumber], [PO1_PurchaseOrderEntryHeader].[VendorName], [PO2_PurchaseOrderEntryLine].[RequiredDate], Min([PO2_PurchaseOrderEntryLine].[AmountInvoiced]) AS MinOfAmountInvoiced
FROM PO1_PurchaseOrderEntryHeader INNER JOIN PO2_PurchaseOrderEntryLine ON [PO1_PurchaseOrderEntryHeader].[PurchaseOrderNumber]=[PO2_PurchaseOrderEntryLine].[PurchaseOrderNumber]
WHERE ((([PO1_PurchaseOrderEntryHeader].[AmountInvoiced])<>0) And (([PO1_PurchaseOrderEntryHeader].[OrderStatus])="C" Or ([PO1_PurchaseOrderEntryHeader].[OrderStatus])="N" Or ([PO1_PurchaseOrderEntryHeader].[OrderStatus])="O" Or ([PO1_PurchaseOrderEntryHeader].[OrderStatus])="B"))
GROUP BY [PO2_PurchaseOrderEntryLine].[PurchaseOrderNumber], [PO1_PurchaseOrderEntryHeader].[VendorName], [PO2_PurchaseOrderEntryLine].[RequiredDate]
HAVING Min(PO2_PurchaseOrderEntryLine.AmountInvoiced) > 0
ORDER BY [PO1_PurchaseOrderEntryHeader].[VendorName];

Thanks!

Once you have your query created, have you considered building a report based on it?  Then you can group by invoice, and have your Min function be performed in the group footer.  If that sounds like something you might want to persue, and you need more details on creating the report, just let me know...

Try something like this.
I could not test it, but I think it will do what you want. The inner query is the key here.

INSERT INTO POCash ( PONum, VendorName, ReqDate, InvBalance )
SELECT [PO2_PurchaseOrderEntryLine].[PurchaseOrderNumber], [PO1_PurchaseOrderEntryHeader].[VendorName], [PO2_PurchaseOrderEntryLine].[RequiredDate], [PO2_PurchaseOrderEntryLine].[AmountInvoiced]) FROM PO1_PurchaseOrderEntryHeader INNER JOIN PO2_PurchaseOrderEntryLine ON [PO1_PurchaseOrderEntryHeader].[PurchaseOrderNumber]=[PO2_PurchaseOrderEntryLine].[PurchaseOrderNumber]
WHERE ((([PO1_PurchaseOrderEntryHeader].[AmountInvoiced])<>0) And (([PO1_PurchaseOrderEntryHeader].[OrderStatus])="C" Or ([PO1_PurchaseOrderEntryHeader].[OrderStatus])="N" Or ([PO1_PurchaseOrderEntryHeader].[OrderStatus])="O" Or ([PO1_PurchaseOrderEntryHeader].[OrderStatus])="B")) AND [PO2_PurchaseOrderEntryLine].[AmountInvoiced]) IN (SELECT Min([PO2_PurchaseOrderEntryLine].[AmountInvoiced]) FROM PO1_PurchaseOrderEntryHeader INNER JOIN PO2_PurchaseOrderEntryLine ON [PO1_PurchaseOrderEntryHeader].[PurchaseOrderNumber]=[PO2_PurchaseOrderEntryLine].[PurchaseOrderNumber]
WHERE ((([PO1_PurchaseOrderEntryHeader].[AmountInvoiced])<>0) And (([PO1_PurchaseOrderEntryHeader].[OrderStatus])="C" Or ([PO1_PurchaseOrderEntryHeader].[OrderStatus])="N" Or ([PO1_PurchaseOrderEntryHeader].[OrderStatus])="O" Or ([PO1_PurchaseOrderEntryHeader].[OrderStatus])="B")) AND [PO2_PurchaseOrderEntryLine].[AmountInvoiced])  ORDER BY [PO1_PurchaseOrderEntryHeader].[VendorName];
