Objective
          I am trying to create a report to show an employee's total occurrences for the current quarter back 7 quarters.  I
          have had a lot of help but not quite there yet.  Where I am at is creating a query to get the information.

Rules to Calculate are below

          A quarter is a set date during a year.  The quarter ends March 31,  June 30, September 30, and December 31 for
          any given year.

          An employee's totals at the end of a quarter needs to be checked from the ending quarter back one year.  

Example  
          If I put in a quarter ending date of 6/30/04  the calculation for that period would be to start with that date and go
          back 364 days and total up the employee's occurrences.  Then I would bounce back to the prior quarter of 3/31/04
          and count back 364 days again until I have a total of 8 quarters.

Currently here is the code I think I am close with.  In the table tblOccurrence the date field is OccurrenceDate and the value I want to add up is in a field called OccurrenceValue.  I like this code because it asks me for a date to start with.

SELECT Employee,
sum(iif(datediff("m", [OccurrenceDate] - 1, dateadd("q", -7, dtRefDate)) between 1 and 12, 1, 0)) as [Quarter1],
sum(iif(datediff("m", [OccurrenceDate] - 1, dateadd("q", -6, dtRefDate)) between 1 and 12, 1, 0)) as [Quarter2],
sum(iif(datediff("m", [OccurrenceDate] - 1, dateadd("q", -5, dtRefDate)) between 1 and 12, 1, 0)) as [Quarter3],
sum(iif(datediff("m", [OccurrenceDate] - 1, dateadd("q", -4, dtRefDate)) between 1 and 12, 1, 0)) as [Quarter4],
sum(iif(datediff("m", [OccurrenceDate] - 1, dateadd("q", -3, dtRefDate)) between 1 and 12, 1, 0)) as [Quarter5],
sum(iif(datediff("m", [OccurrenceDate] - 1, dateadd("q", -2, dtRefDate)) between 1 and 12, 1, 0)) as [Quarter6],
sum(iif(datediff("m", [OccurrenceDate] - 1, dateadd("q", -1, dtRefDate)) between 1 and 12, 1, 0)) as [Quarter7],
sum(iif(datediff("m", [OccurrenceDate] - 1, dtRefDate) between 1 and 12, 1, 0)) as [Quarter8]
from tblOccurrence
group by Employee

Hi TThayer,

Have you tried this query? It is not the same you posted above.

SELECT Employee,
sum(iif(datediff("m", [Occurrence Date] - 1, dateadd("q", -7, dtRefDate)) between 1 and 12, [Occurrence Value], 0)) as [Quarter1],
sum(iif(datediff("m", [Occurrence Date] - 1, dateadd("q", -6, dtRefDate)) between 1 and 12, [Occurrence Value], 0)) as [Quarter2],
sum(iif(datediff("m", [Occurrence Date] - 1, dateadd("q", -5, dtRefDate)) between 1 and 12, [Occurrence Value], 0)) as [Quarter3],
sum(iif(datediff("m", [Occurrence Date] - 1, dateadd("q", -4, dtRefDate)) between 1 and 12, [Occurrence Value], 0)) as [Quarter4],
sum(iif(datediff("m", [Occurrence Date] - 1, dateadd("q", -3, dtRefDate)) between 1 and 12, [Occurrence Value], 0)) as [Quarter5],
sum(iif(datediff("m", [Occurrence Date] - 1, dateadd("q", -2, dtRefDate)) between 1 and 12, [Occurrence Value], 0)) as [Quarter6],
sum(iif(datediff("m", [Occurrence Date] - 1, dateadd("q", -1, dtRefDate)) between 1 and 12, [Occurrence Value], 0)) as [Quarter7],
sum(iif(datediff("m", [Occurrence Date] - 1, dtRefDate) between 1 and 12, [Occurrence Value], 0)) as [Quarter8]
from tblOccurrence
group by Employee

Tell me if it works.

Yee Ha!  Hoping you were out there.   I did try the other query but it asks for both a dtrefDate  and and Occurrence Value.  I am putting in 6/30/03 for the date but dont know what to put in for the value.  While typing this I just had a thought to check.  I have changed the Occurrence Date to one word OccurrenceDate and the Occurrence Value to One word OccurrenceValue.  I made the adjustments and it worked.  All the values came up as currency as I am using currency to get decimal values to show up on other forms.  Is there a way to just show numbers to 2 decimal places without the $ signs?

Here is what I got  the numbers are close to what I manually calculated but then I could have made some mistakes.  Numbers run together for me.

Employee      Quarter1      Quarter2      Quarter3      Quarter4      Quarter5      Quarter6      Quarter7      Quarter8
Ausmus, Adam      $0.00      $0.00      $0.00      $0.00      $0.00      $0.00      $0.00      $1.00
Thayer, Trygve      $4.00      $4.00      $5.00      $9.00      $10.00      $10.00      $9.00      $4.00

That's why [Ocurrence Value] is enclosed between brackets. It would work, though.

Good luck.
