Hi,

I have the following sql syntax that talks to an access database: -

rs.Open("Select NetDelCost, TaxCost, sum(TaxCost + NetDelCost) as 'DeliveryNetttotal' , Sum(NetDelCost) as 'DeliveryGrossTotal' from products WHERE Sold = true ", conn)

it keeps coming up: -

You tried to execute a query that does not include the specified expression 'NetDelCost' as part of an aggregate function.

When I run it in vb.net.

What am I doing wrong please.

Many Thanks
Lee

You're asking for both NetDelCost and its sum?  That's not going to make sense.  In order to get any benefit out of the SUM() aggregation, you're going to have to group some records together.  You're asking for each individual NetDelCost and the sum of it on each record ... which is the same thing.

What are your raw data?  And what are you trying to find?  I'm sure one of us can help you achieve that.
