Hello, I require to show a Continous form, that will show a Period Date  Product Code Customer Code and a Value.

This will originally come form a Table of Actual Figures that hold these fields.

Thing is I need to show a Full Years Data, while not all products will have been bought each Month.

Ok so the actual table looks like 200604 TS123 1020344 45.00
                                              200605 TS123 1020344 75.00
                                              200607 TS123 1020344 85.00

I need the form to show this but to Fill in the missing value info with Zero's so Like this:
200604 TS123 1020344 45.00
200605 TS123 1020344 75.00
200607 TS123 1020344 0.00
200607 TS123 1020344 85.00

Instead of YourValue as the control source of the textbox, use =Nz([YourValue ],0)

You are actually trying to infer a [Period Date] field that does not exist in the table?
You would perhaps have to create a table with all possible period dates, and tie it to your ActualFigures table.

SELECT a.PeriodDate, b.productCode, b.CustomerCode, Sum(IIf([a].[PeriodDate]=[b].[PeriodDate],[Value],0)) AS Expr1
FROM DateTable AS a, ActualFigures AS b
GROUP BY a.PeriodDate, b.productCode, b.CustomerCode;
And this becomes the form's record source

Yes I'm looking to infer a Period Date field that doesn't exist in the table...

I have created the other table and linked these, but as it's a continuous form the i Get 2 dates and not Grouped.

So I get
200604 TS123 1020344 0.00
200604 TS123 1020344 45.00
200605 TS123 1020344 0.00
200605 TS123 1020344 75.00
200606 TS123 1020344 0.00
200607 TS123 1020344 0.00
200607 TS123 1020344 85.00

and I cannot seem to get the Union table to group this.

SELECT Period, [Customer Number], [Delivery Point], [Product Code], Quantity, Value
FROM Qry_g2005_Values
UNION SELECT Period, [Customer Number], [Delivery Point], [Product Code], Quantity, Value
FROM tble_Months
GROUP BY  Period, [Customer Number], [Delivery Point], [Product Code], Quantity, Value;


As requested.

My concept is that tbl_Months only has one field, all possible Period values.
That being the case, what you want is:

SELECT tbl_months.Period, qry_g2005_values.productCode, qry_g2005_values.CustomerNumber, qry_g2005_values.[Delivery Point], qry_g2005_values.quantity, Sum(IIf([tbl_months].[Period]=[qry_g2005_values].[Period],[qry_g2005_values].[Value],0)) AS VVALUE
FROM tabl_month,qry_g2005_values
GROUP BY atbl_Months.Period, qry_g2005_values.productCode, qry_g2005_values.CustomerNumber, qry_g2005_values.[Delivery Point], qry_g2005_values.quantity;

Not a union.

Thanks Jerryb, that did the job, should've known that as well I fell in the trap of "it's more difficult than I think".

Thanks again for that.
