Access Query

I have a table with three fields:

RecordID - Auto number
FileNumber - Numeric String
Validated - Boolean

I need to write a query to select the count of file numbers that were not validated i.e where Validated=False.
The trick is that there are could be multiple records for the same file number. And if a file number has a record where Validated=True it does not need to be counted. For example:

RecordID      FileNumber      Validated
1            123            True
2            123            False
3            123            True
4            456            False
5            678            False
6            678            False

The query should return 2

say your table is called xxx

select count(FileNumber) from xxx a where validated=false and recordid not in (select recordid from xxx where xxx.filenumber = a.filenumber and validated=true)

arcross, que pasa contigo?:)

rockiroads,

filenumber needs to be unique, so I changed your query to:

select count(FileNumber) from xxx a where validated=false and FileNumber not in (select distinct FileNumber from xxx where xxx.filenumber = a.filenumber and validated=true)
