Hello,

I have a Query developed in MS Query that pulls data from a datawarehouse. The query works fine in Excel but I now want to convert this to Access.

I have linked the various tables in Access that are linked in Excel Query but I now need to know how can I convert the Excel SQL Statement so that it's useable in Access.

Thanks.

Never used MS Query, but as a first guess the syntax would be the same.

Can you post the current SQL you have?

This is the Current Code. The Data Warehouse name is DW_Overview

Thanks.

What are your tables called in Access?
e.g.

U have this in Excel

SIEBEL.S_EVT_ACT

What is it called in Access?

Change all tablenames to be what they are in Acces


what this is doing
SIEBEL.S_EVT_ACT S_EVT_ACT

is setting table alias,
just doung S_EVT_ACT should be sufficient (if thats your tablename)

Hi, this is the code in Access but it's still not picking up the data. Could it be the Relationship between tables?

SELECT DW_OVERVIEW_S_ORDER.ORDER_NUM, DW_OVERVIEW_S_ORG_EXT.NAME, DW_OVERVIEW_S_ORDER.STATUS_CD, DW_OVERVIEW_S_PROD_INT.NAME
FROM ((DW_OVERVIEW_S_ORDER INNER JOIN DW_OVERVIEW_S_ORG_EXT ON DW_OVERVIEW_S_ORDER.ACCNT_ID = DW_OVERVIEW_S_ORG_EXT.ROW_ID) INNER JOIN DW_OVERVIEW_S_PROD_INT ON DW_OVERVIEW_S_ORDER.ROW_ID = DW_OVERVIEW_S_PROD_INT.ROW_ID) INNER JOIN DW_OVERVIEW_S_ORDER_ITEM ON (DW_OVERVIEW_S_PROD_INT.ROW_ID = DW_OVERVIEW_S_ORDER_ITEM.PROD_ID) AND (DW_OVERVIEW_S_ORG_EXT.ROW_ID = DW_OVERVIEW_S_ORDER_ITEM.BILL_ACCNT_ID) AND (DW_OVERVIEW_S_ORDER.ROW_ID = DW_OVERVIEW_S_ORDER_ITEM.ORDER_ID) AND (DW_OVERVIEW_S_ORDER.ROW_ID = DW_OVERVIEW_S_ORDER_ITEM.ORDER_ID)
GROUP BY DW_OVERVIEW_S_ORDER.ORDER_NUM, DW_OVERVIEW_S_ORG_EXT.NAME, DW_OVERVIEW_S_ORDER.STATUS_CD, DW_OVERVIEW_S_PROD_INT.NAME
HAVING (((DW_OVERVIEW_S_ORDER.STATUS_CD)="In Progress"));

Ive broken  your query down to this to make it easier for you to read. Ive used table aliases also

SELECT DISTINCTROW  a.ORDER_NUM, b.NAME, a.STATUS_CD, c.NAME
FROM DW_OVERVIEW_S_ORDER a, DW_OVERVIEW_S_ORG_EXT b, DW_OVERVIEW_S_PROD_INT c, JOIN DW_OVERVIEW_S_ORDER_ITEM d
WHERE a.ACCNT_ID = b.ROW_ID
AND a.ROW_ID = c.ROW_ID
AND c.ROW_ID = d.PROD_ID
AND b.ROW_ID = d.BILL_ACCNT_ID
AND a.ROW_ID = d.ORDER_ID
AND a.ROW_ID = d.ORDER_ID
AND a.STATUS_CD ="In Progress"


Now from here u can see your joins more clearly

a.ROW_ID matches to C.ROW_ID
but a.ROW_ID also matches to d.ORDER_ID
so that is how a links to c and d?
But to confuse matters, u say C.ROW_ID = D.PROD_ID
this is unnecessary as you already have it joined


This probably serve u better

SELECT DISTINCTROW  a.ORDER_NUM, b.NAME, a.STATUS_CD, c.NAME
FROM DW_OVERVIEW_S_ORDER a, DW_OVERVIEW_S_ORG_EXT b, DW_OVERVIEW_S_PROD_INT c, JOIN DW_OVERVIEW_S_ORDER_ITEM d
WHERE a.ACCNT_ID = b.ROW_ID
AND a.ROW_ID = c.ROW_ID
AND c.ROW_ID = d.PROD_ID
AND b.ROW_ID = d.BILL_ACCNT_ID
AND a.STATUS_CD ="In Progress"


Now using this can you sort out your table relations? ensure joins are correct
