SQL query syntax using Switch

Hi

Im having a problem with the following query, this is what i have so far...

SELECT consultant_BB.Consultant_name, Actual_BB.Primary, Actual_BB.Secondary, Actual_BB.Upgrade, Actual_BB.Business, Actual_BB.Date, Switch(((Actual_BB.Primary+Actual_BB.Secondary+Actual_BB.Upgrade+Actual_BB.Business)>=(Round((Target_Perc_BB.target/100)*(consultant_BB.target)))),"None",True,"Works") AS Expr1
FROM Incentive_BB, Target_Perc_BB AS Target_Perc_BB_1 INNER JOIN (Target_Perc_BB INNER JOIN (status INNER JOIN (region INNER JOIN (Division INNER JOIN (consultant_BB INNER JOIN Actual_BB ON consultant_BB.ID = Actual_BB.Consultant_name) ON Division.ID = consultant_BB.Div_ID) ON region.ID = consultant_BB.Region_ID) ON status.ID = consultant_BB.Emp_Ind) ON Target_Perc_BB.Month = Actual_BB.Date) ON Target_Perc_BB_1.Month = Actual_BB.Date
WHERE (format([Actual_BB].[Date],"YYMM"))= (format([Target_Perc_BB].[month],"YYMM"))
AND ((consultant_BB.ID)=[actual_bb].[Consultant_name]);

If you check this line

Switch(((Actual_BB.Primary+Actual_BB.Secondary+Actual_BB.Upgrade+Actual_BB.Business)<=(Round((Target_Perc_BB.target/100)*(consultant_BB.target)))),"None",True,"Works") AS Expr1

its my main concern, im adding up actual sales here and comparing it to the target percentage multiplied by the actual annual target.

problem is everything is showing up as none when i know some ppl exceeded their target. once i sort this line out i can carry on, and have some basics to work on.

any help is appreciated.
Thanks

Whoa there, there are way too many parentheses in that expression. Let's simplify it to make it easier to read:
Switch((Actual_BB.Primary+Actual_BB.Secondary+Actual_BB.Upgrade+Actual_BB.Business)<=Round((Target_Perc_BB.target/100)*consultant_BB.target)),"None",True,"Works")

In this expression, you want to show None if the total value is LESS than the percentage target figure. Is that correct?

sorry let me make it easier to read

SELECT consultant_BB.Consultant_name,
Actual_BB.Primary,
Actual_BB.Secondary,
Actual_BB.Upgrade,
Actual_BB.Business,
Actual_BB.Date, Switch(
((Actual_BB.Primary+Actual_BB.Secondary+Actual_BB.Upgrade+Actual_BB.Business)
>=
(Round((Target_Perc_BB.target/100)*(consultant_BB.target)))),"None",True,"Works") AS Expr1
FROM Incentive_BB,
Target_Perc_BB AS Target_Perc_BB_1 INNER JOIN
(Target_Perc_BB INNER JOIN
(status INNER JOIN
(region INNER JOIN
(Division INNER JOIN
(consultant_BB INNER JOIN
Actual_BB ON consultant_BB.ID = Actual_BB.Consultant_name)
ON Division.ID = consultant_BB.Div_ID)
ON region.ID = consultant_BB.Region_ID)
ON status.ID = consultant_BB.Emp_Ind)
ON Target_Perc_BB.Month = Actual_BB.Date)
ON Target_Perc_BB_1.Month = Actual_BB.Date
WHERE
(format([Actual_BB].[Date],"YYMM"))= (format([Target_Perc_BB].[month],"YYMM"))
AND ((consultant_BB.ID)=[actual_bb].[Consultant_name]);

Not sure Switch works in Access (could well be wrong there, though).

Try...

Iif ((Actual_BB.Primary+Actual_BB.Secondary+Actual_BB.Upgrade+Actual_BB.Business)<=(Round((Target_Perc_BB.target/100)*(consultant_BB.target))), "None", "Works") AS Expr1

Please check the brackets and so on. Format of the Iif statement is...

Iif(comarison, value if true, value if false).

ridi786Author Commented:
sorry my bad

the points are yours. I realised they not it suppose to be 80 percent of the

Round((Target_Perc_BB.target/100)*consultant_BB.target)),

amended it to read

Switch(((Actual_BB.Primary+Actual_BB.Secondary+Actual_BB.Upgrade+Actual_BB.Business)<=.8*(Round((Target_Perc_BB.target/100)*consultant_BB.target)))

and it comes up correct

thanks for the help anyways, i think it got too complicated with the brackets, so i neva knew what was going on anymore, hehe

The other limitation of IIf is that you can only have a maximum of nine nested IIfs (and I would've lost track of the brackets at around IIf no. 5) :-)

Wow - what a limitation :)...

Don't think I've ever gone over 3!
