Hi,
I'm planning to have MySQL instead of Access 2k3 as back-end.
I'll keep the Access-DB as front-end.

I have mainly 3 types of queries in Access. Would like to see how they look like as a MySQL view.
(MySQL 5.0.27 / MyODBC 3.x and 5.0.11)

1.) with Access IIf function and some calculation:
========================================
SELECT
tblL5LAT.tblL5CAUTOID,
IIf(([LengteAfgekort]),[LengteAfgekort],[REALLengte]) AS BerLengte,
([BerLengte]*[REALStuks]) AS StrekkendeMetersPerLengteInPak
FROM tblL5LAT;

2.) with Access SUM-function (probably the same as Qry 1 ?!?)
====================================================
SELECT
tblL4LAT.LATPakID,
Sum(qryLATSubBer_A.StrekkendeMetersPerLengteInPak) AS SumOfStrekkendeMetersPerLengteInPak
FROM tblL4LAT LEFT JOIN (tblL5LAT LEFT JOIN qryLATSubBer_A ON tblL5LAT.tblL5CAUTOID = qryLATSubBer_A.tblL5CAUTOID) ON tblL4LAT.tbl4LATAUTO = tblL5LAT.tblL4LATID
GROUP BY tblL4LAT.LATPakID;

3.) Filter on a certain Access form-field. For report purposes.
==================================================
SELECT qryJaarOverzichtPRINT.*
FROM qryJaarOverzichtPRINT
WHERE (((qryJaarOverzichtPRINT.VerkoopcontractID)=[Forms]![frmVerkoopcontractOverzicht]![VerkoopcontractID]));

I can split the question in 3 parts...
Just translate the first query and I will post 2 questions more.... (and link to them)

2 and 3 are the same as in access

the IIF translates to the use of the case statement

e.g.

case when  [LengteAfgekort] > 0 then [LengteAfgekort] else REALLengte end as ....

Hi!

How would no.3 work in practice then.. I mean It's a form field from Access to filter on.
Since I would like to have it to work in a view.. the view can't read this certain Access form field...
How to deal with this matter...

/* ALGORITHM=UNDEFINED */ select `db_230`.`tbll5lat`.`tblL5CAUTOID` AS `tblL5CAUTOID`,((case when (`db_230`.`tbll5lat`.`LengteAfgekort` > 0) then `db_230`.`tbll5lat`.`LengteAfgekort` else `db_230`.`tbll5lat`.`REALLengte` end) * `db_230`.`tbll5lat`.`REALStuks`) AS `StrekkendeMetersPerLengteInPak` from `db_230`.`tbll5lat`

It works, but I doubt it is ok.. why does it write the db_name all the time?
This CASE-line in Navicat shows as well a bunch of DOS-tabs/enters..

((case
(.`tbll5lat`
.`LengteAfgekort`
>0).`tbll5lat`
.`LengteAfgekort`
.`tbll5lat`
.`REALLengte`
)*.`tbll5lat`
.`REALStuks`
)

Maybe I understand it better with an example of realworld code (instead of syntax-examples) of a MySQL view.
(I've found lot of stored procedures with CASE and IF etc. but that seems to be slightly different...)
