Specified Expression not included as part of aggregate Function

Hello,

I have a database with Prioperties (PropertyID) and Years.  

I am trying to build a query that will give me the Sum of the RoomsCoorExp + FBExp for each Property.  I've got that part working fine.  I don't want to include any of the RoomsCorrExp or FB Exp if the GrossRevenue = 0 for that particular year.

I tried entering [GrossRevenues]<>0 as the criteria for my expression, and I get the Error "You tried to execute a query that does not include the specified expression 'Not [GrossRevenues]=0' as part of an aggregate function.

The SQL that does work (before I try to add in the GrossRevenue critearia) is:
SELECT tblFinancial.PropertyID, tblMASTER.HotelName, Sum([tblFinancial].[RoomsCorrExp]+[tblFinancial].[FBExp]) AS TotalCapEx
FROM tblFinancial INNER JOIN tblMASTER ON tblFinancial.PropertyID = tblMASTER.PropertyID
GROUP BY tblFinancial.PropertyID, tblMASTER.HotelName;

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

An alternative way, try this
though it might still complain due to +

SELECT tblFinancial.PropertyID, tblMASTER.HotelName, Sum([tblFinancial].[RoomsCorrExp])+Sum([tblFinancial].[FBExp]) AS TotalCapEx
FROM tblFinancial INNER JOIN tblMASTER ON tblFinancial.PropertyID = tblMASTER.PropertyID
GROUP BY tblFinancial.PropertyID, tblMASTER.HotelName

Rockiroads,

Thanks for your response.  The Statment I wrote above DOES work (I tried your statement too, and it also works).  What I can't figure out how to do is get the "GrossRevenues<>0" Criteria in there.

Thx!

SELECT tblFinancial.PropertyID, tblMASTER.HotelName, Sum([tblFinancial].[RoomsCorrExp])+Sum([tblFinancial].[FBExp]) AS TotalCapEx
FROM tblFinancial INNER JOIN tblMASTER ON tblFinancial.PropertyID = tblMASTER.PropertyID
WHERE <WhichTable?>.GrossRevenues <> 0
GROUP BY tblFinancial.PropertyID, tblMASTER.HotelName;

Add the third line and be sure to replace <WhichTable?> with the correct table name - either tblFinancial or tblMaster
