I am running a golf tournament and have set up a database all components are working well.  However I would like to add a little enhancement.  We have 36 teams with 4 players on each team.  Starting Hole table runs a cboStartingHole with a field showing 1A, 1B, 2A, 2B, etc..  When 1 have assigned 4 players (1 team) to a hole I would like that specific hole to not show in the cbo, to prevent accidentally assigning a 5th player (or worse an entire other team)

This will show you all the holes assigned to players and how many players are assigned to each hole:

SELECT HoleID, Count(PlayerID) AS NumPlayers FROM Holes LEFT JOIN Players ON Holes.HoleID = Players.HoleID GROUP BY Holes.HoleID

To grab all the holes with less then 4 players:

SELECT HoleID FROM (SELECT HoleID, Count(PlayerID) AS NumPlayers FROM Holes LEFT JOIN Players ON Holes.HoleID = Players.HoleID GROUP BY Holes.HoleID) WHERE Nz(NumPlayers,0)<4
