Left Join Not returning all records required.

I have a query.....

If a record in the left join doesn't meet the criteria, it omits the record from the record set, instead of just returning a stock value of 0....

How can I fix this please?   Long Query below:
-----------------------------------------
SELECT Count(Stock.[Item Number]) AS sumofqty, OrderDetails.[Order Number], OrderDetails.[Sequence Number], OrderDetails.[Item Number], OrderDetails.Description1, OrderDetails.Description2, OrderDetails.[Qty Ordered], OrderDetails.[Qty To Ship], OrderDetails.[Qty Shipped], OrderDetails.[Unit Price], OrderDetails.[Qty Return To Stock], OrderDetails.[Unit of Measure], OrderDetails.[Unit Weight], OrderDetails.[Taxable Flag], OrderDetails.[Select Code], OrderDetails.[GST Taxable Flag], OrderDetails.[Counter Type], OrderDetails.[Pick Sequence], OrderDetails.[Shelf Life], OrderDetails.[From Warehouse]

FROM OrderDetails LEFT JOIN Stock     ON OrderDetails.[Item Number] = Stock.[Item Number] WHERE (((Stock.Warehouse)="pk") AND ((Stock.[Date Invoiced]) Is Null) AND ((Stock.[Order Number]) Is Null))

GROUP BY OrderDetails.[Order Number], OrderDetails.[Sequence Number], OrderDetails.[Item Number], OrderDetails.Description1, OrderDetails.Description2, OrderDetails.[Qty Ordered], OrderDetails.[Qty To Ship], OrderDetails.[Qty Shipped], OrderDetails.[Unit Price], OrderDetails.[Qty Return To Stock], OrderDetails.[Unit of Measure], OrderDetails.[Unit Weight], OrderDetails.[Taxable Flag], OrderDetails.[Select Code], OrderDetails.[GST Taxable Flag], OrderDetails.[Counter Type], OrderDetails.[Pick Sequence], OrderDetails.[Shelf Life], OrderDetails.[From Warehouse], OrderDetails.[Order Number], OrderDetails.[Sequence Number]

HAVING (((OrderDetails.[Order Number])=109230))

ORDER BY OrderDetails.[Order Number], OrderDetails.[Sequence Number];

---------------------------------------------
Thanks,

Change this:

FROM OrderDetails LEFT JOIN Stock     ON OrderDetails.[Item Number] = Stock.[Item Number] WHERE (((Stock.Warehouse)="pk") AND ((Stock.[Date Invoiced]) Is Null) AND ((Stock.[Order Number]) Is Null))

to:

FROM OrderDetails LEFT JOIN (SELECT * FROM Stock WHERE Stock.Warehouse="pk" AND Stock.[Date Invoiced] Is Null AND Stock.[Order Number] Is Null) As A ON OrderDetails.[Item Number] = A.[Item Number]

Change any references to the Stock table in the rest of the query to A.

BIG hunch, not carefully checked:  You might be getting fouled by the HAVING clause.  Have you tried adding you Order Number criteria to the WHERE clause instead to see if that returns what you expect (without a HAVING clause altogether)?

Hi,

It happened without a having clause, but i just added that so when I am running the query it will limit the about of records... with or without it it is the same... but thanks!  I just tried it again.
