Hi,

I know the basic difference between HAVING and WHERE.  In terms of the speed, does it make a difference?  Thanks

Hmm, I think not, but Access surprised me more then once :-)

Just create a small test module to execute a HAVING and a WHERE groupby query a few 1,000 times in a loop with a save time and a print of the time difference when ready.
Make sure to run it several times as the system's workload can make a single measurement unreliable.

Where's the problem?

Just create a function like:

Function fncTestTime()

Dim dtm As Date

dtm = Time()

For intI = 1 To 1000
   CurrentDb.Execute ("having query")
Next

Debug.Print "Having duration: " & Date - dtm

dtm = Time()

For intI = 1 To 1000
   CurrentDb.Execute ("where query")
Next

Debug.Print "Where duration: " & Date - dtm

End Function

Hi,

I run this and it says " expect a function or variable", I thought I need to assign it to a rs??

Set rs = CurrentDb.Execute("SELECT * FROM Loan")

Try just:

 CurrentDb.execute("SELECT * FROM Loan")

I think this won't work. You can not execute a select query

       <CurrentDb.execute("SELECT * FROM Loan")>

Try it this way
Dim strSQL as String
strSQL="Select * From Loan"

Set rs = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset(strSQL)

Yes, it works fine.  How can I call a query that I built in query builder?  Thx

Just use the name in:
Set rs = CurrentDb.OpenRecordset("<queryname>")
