SQL Syntax and Logic Help - Match Merge Data in two tables

rs through rs3 works fine.  rs4 is where i am having an issue.

here is the short version of what i want to do:

the database search starts from a text box, query's CONSDB_MBRHISTDETL by MBRSEP.  CONSDB_MBRHISTDETL has the MBRSEP and LOCATION fields.  CONSDB_LOCINFODETL has the LOCATION field but NOT the MBRSEP field.  how do i match the LOCATION fields on both tables to be able to pull the SVCADDR field from CONSDB_LOCINFODETL based on my MBRSEP query?

i made my attempt with rs4, but i think the logic is wrong, along with the syntax.  any help would be appreciated.

<%
Dim Con
Dim rs
Dim rs2
Dim rs3
Dim rs4

Set rs = Server.CreateObject ("ADODB.Recordset")
Set rs2 = Server.CreateObject ("ADODB.Recordset")
Set rs3 = Server.CreateObject ("ADODB.Recordset")
Set rs4 = Server.CreateObject ("ADODB.Recordset")

Set Con = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Con.Open "Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};DBQ=C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\Intranet\bill\database\bills.mdb"

mySQL1 = "select * from CONSDB_MBRHISTDETL where MBRSEP LIKE '%" & Request.Form("MBRSEP") & "%'"
mySQL2 = "select * from CONSDB_MBRSEPMSTR where MBRSEP LIKE '%" & Request.Form("MBRSEP") & "%'"
mySQL3 = "select * from CONSDB_MEMBERDETL where MBRSEP LIKE '%" & Request.Form("MBRSEP") & "%'"
mySQL4 = "select SVCADDR from CONSDB_LOCINFODETL where rs("LOCATION") = rs4("LOCATION") AND MBRSEP LIKE '%" & Request.Form("MBRSEP") & "%'"

Set rs = Con.Execute(mySQL1)
Set rs2 = Con.Execute(mySQL2)
Set rs3 = Con.Execute(mySQL3)
Set rs4 = Con.Execute(mySQL4)

Con.Execute mySQL1
Con.Execute mySQL2
Con.Execute mySQL3
Con.Execute mySQL4
%>


<%

IF rs.EOF Then
      Response.Redirect ("../nodata.html")
end if      

do while not rs.eof
      MBRSEP = rs("MBRSEP")
      DUEDATE      = rs("DUEDATE")
      KWH      = rs("KWH")
      NAME = rs2("NAME")
      TELEPHONE = rs3("TELEPHONE")
      ADDR1 = rs2("ADDR1")
      CYCLE = rs3("CYCLE")
      RATE = rs3("RATE")
      LOCATION1 = rs("LOCATION")
      LOCATION2 = rs4("LOCATION")

Microsoft VBScript compilation  error '800a0401'
Expected end of statement
/bill/cgi-bin/search_member_sep_electric.asp, line 28
mySQL4 = "select SVCADDR from CONSDB_LOCINFODETL where rs("LOCATION") = rs4("LOCATION") AND MBRSEP LIKE '%" & Request.Form("MBRSEP") & "%'"

>mySQL4 = "select SVCADDR from CONSDB_LOCINFODETL where rs("LOCATION") = rs4("LOCATION") AND MBRSEP LIKE '%" & Request.Form("MBRSEP") & "%'"

this cannot work like this, but this will:

mySQL4 = "select a.SVCADDR from CONSDB_LOCINFODETL a JOIN CONSDB_MBRHISTDETL b on a.LOCATION = b.LOCATION and a.MBRSEP = b.MBRSEP where MBRSEP LIKE '%" & Request.Form("MBRSEP") & "%'"

ok, i tried that, here is what i got:

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e14'
[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Syntax error in FROM clause.
/bill/cgi-bin/search_member_sep_electric.asp, line 34

line 34 --> Set rs4 = Con.Execute(mySQL4)

mySQL4 = "select a.SVCADDR from CONSDB_LOCINFODETL a JOIN CONSDB_MBRHISTDETL b on a.LOCATION = b.LOCATION and a.MBRSEP = b.MBRSEP where MBRSEP LIKE '%" & Request.Form("MBRSEP") & "%'"

Obviously I missed the "ACCESS Database" information...

Access requires to write INNER JOIN (and not simply JOIN):

mySQL4 = "select a.SVCADDR from CONSDB_LOCINFODETL a INNER JOIN CONSDB_MBRHISTDETL b on a.LOCATION = b.LOCATION and a.MBRSEP = b.MBRSEP where MBRSEP LIKE '%" & Request.Form("MBRSEP") & "%'"

any better with this:
mySQL4 = "select a.SVCADDR from CONSDB_LOCINFODETL a INNER JOIN CONSDB_MBRHISTDETL b on a.LOCATION = b.LOCATION and a.MBRSEP = b.MBRSEP where a.MBRSEP LIKE '%" & Request.Form("MBRSEP") & "%'"

could you take the sql generated and run that directly on access, and tell us what he prompts you for?

You said:

  CONSDB_LOCINFODETL has the LOCATION field but NOT the MBRSEP field.  

based on that give this a try:

  select a.SVCADDR from CONSDB_LOCINFODETL a INNER JOIN CONSDB_MBRHISTDETL b on a.LOCATION = b.LOCATION where b.MBRSEP LIKE '%" & replace(Request.Form("MBRSEP"),"'","''") & "%'"

and you may really be after this:

  select distinct a.SVCADDR from CONSDB_LOCINFODETL a INNER JOIN CONSDB_MBRHISTDETL b on a.LOCATION = b.LOCATION where b.MBRSEP LIKE '%" & replace(Request.Form("MBRSEP"),"'","''") & "%'"

If your history detail has multiple records per mbrsep and you only want a the distinct svcaddr-- not sure what you're really after nor clear on your data structure but based on the fact you're only pulling SVCADDR the distinct clause probably makes more sense.

i couldn't get any of the above to work, so i'm trying another route.  i've setup the query to retrieve the data in access, then tried to convert that code to work in ASP.  can anyone assist?

FYI, the 330 at the end needs to be CONSDB_MEMBERDETL.MBRSEP LIKE '%" & Request.Form("MBRSEP") & "%'"
