relate column


Split schedules are two kinds of schedules.
-Let's say on Monday and Tuesday you start at 9:00 and you go home at 18:00
then on Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday you start at 7:00 and you go home at 16:00

I have an access database with 7 columns for Monday,Tuesday,Wednesday,Thursday,Friday,Saturday,Sunday

Mon  Tue  Wed  Thu  Fri  Sat  Sun
 Y       Y      Y       Y          Y                        -Y signifies you have a schedule for that particular day


I have database records with couple of situations, Some have only one instance of 'Y' this means he only comes in one day of the week. We don't want that. How do we squeeze that to search for a record that has four 'Y' ?
ID Mon  Tue  Wed  Thu  Fri  Sat  Sun   Related
01   Y                                                   1                <-------the new column related tell's that it is related to another schedule
02                          Y      Y     Y    Y       1                <-------the new column related tell's that it is related to another schedule

A complete schedules are 5 working days.
We can have them working on Saturday and Sunday.
we need to search for these types of schedules and related them to one another.
relate uncomplete schedules (we found 3 working days, find 2 working days and see if they are a match)

Ansi sql standard please.

I'm able to pull up those schedules that are less than 5.

     SQL = "SELECT Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday FROM forecastsched " & _
    "WHERE ( " & _
    " Iif(Monday='Y',1,0) + Iif(Tuesday='Y',1,0) + Iif(Wednesday='Y',1,0) + " & _
     " Iif(Thursday='Y',1,0) + Iif(Friday='Y',1,0) + Iif(Saturday='Y',1,0)  + Iif(Sunday='Y',1,0) " & _
     " ) < 5;"

I wasn't able finish what you've started so I'm asking for other people's opinion.

Sorry, don't quite understand. I thought you said the solution I posted at:

was working perfectly? If you are still having problems with it, please post them so I can sort them out for you. I don't like providing partially working solutions. :)
