dSum problem - SQL expression in access. syntax error

Hi,

Please can somebody help me debug the following statement within access.

Explanation.
I have a database which has a list of all the customers orders and their values, once we receive the cheques for their orders, I add them up, if they equal the order value I release the order.

If I use a sum query to add up all the cheques for 1 customer, once you link the query to the table and run it in a form and all the data becomes read only.  Hence I'm unable to release customers.

I have been suggested to use dSum to add all the customers cheques together rather than a sum query.

This is a layout of the 2 tables involved.

TBL name : SS07_payment_plan

Cliente Fatturazione    Text
JBA_code (key) (Linked to other table) Text
Ragione Sociale     Text
Order Value(inc vat)     Currency
Currency    Text
controller (linked to another table not in this example) Text
Insurance in currency       Currency
Memo notes    Memo
release_acc     (yes/no)

TBL2 : SS07_payment_plan_chq_info
ID (key)  autonumber
Acc_num (Linked to other table) (text)
Chq_amm     Currency
date      date/time

The expression a very kind fella helped me with is...

SELECT SS07_payment_plan_chq_info.*,
DSum("[Chq_amm]",
"SS07_payment_plan",
" [JBA_code] = ' " & SS07_payment_plan_chq_info.Acc_num " ' " )
AS chqsum
FROM SS07_payment_plan_chq_info;

It keeps coming back with syntax error, it highlights the  " ' "  at the end of

 " [JBA_code] = ' " & SS07_payment_plan_chq_info.Acc_num " ' " )

Please can somebody help me correct this expression.  Thanks.

Thank you.

you forgot the { & }

SELECT SS07_payment_plan_chq_info.*,
DSum("[Chq_amm]",
"SS07_payment_plan",
" [JBA_code] = ' " & SS07_payment_plan_chq_info.Acc_num & " ' " )
AS chqsum
FROM SS07_payment_plan_chq_info;

OMG, no errors, no nothing.  It loads the datasheet and there is nothing in the dSum box.

I'm going to chew my own fingers off.

excuse me, I've counted to 10, I understand this is my own fault for not studying so hard when I was at school. :)

You guys are amazing, anything you can see which might be causing it to not show any result?

(It's amazing the power of an '&' )

I added the other table and it loads, but the chqsum column is still blank?

SELECT SS07_payment_plan_chq_info.*, DSum("[Chq_amm]","SS07_payment_plan"," [JBA_code] = ' " & SS07_payment_plan_chq_info.Acc_num & " ' ") AS chqsum
FROM SS07_payment_plan RIGHT JOIN SS07_payment_plan_chq_info ON SS07_payment_plan.JBA_code = SS07_payment_plan_chq_info.Acc_num;

I notice you are using " ' "
----------------------------^^--remove the spaces and re-try.

ie:


DSum("[Chq_amm]","SS07_payment_plan"," [JBA_code] = '" & SS07_payment_plan_chq_info.Acc_num "'" )

Taken all the spaces out, it works, but doesn't display anything in the chqsum field we've created.

Cheers for this, I'm uploading the file now, I'd love it if you could have a look.

Cheers, there shouldn't be any VB code so you can disable anything if it asks.

Thanks.

you have the wrong table in the dsum,

try this

SELECT SS07_payment_plan_chq_info.*, DSum("[Chq_amm]","SS07_payment_plan_chq_info","[Acc_num]='" & [SS07_payment_plan].[jba_code] & "'") AS chqsum
FROM SS07_payment_plan LEFT JOIN SS07_payment_plan_chq_info ON SS07_payment_plan.JBA_code = SS07_payment_plan_chq_info.Acc_num;

or

SELECT SS07_payment_plan_chq_info.*, DSum("[Chq_amm]","SS07_payment_plan_chq_info","[Acc_num]='" & [SS07_payment_plan].[jba_code] & "'") AS chqsum
FROM SS07_payment_plan Inner JOIN SS07_payment_plan_chq_info ON SS07_payment_plan.JBA_code = SS07_payment_plan_chq_info.Acc_num;

There is no field in the DSum field named chq_amm.  I subsititued [Order Value(vat Inc)] and it ran fine.

the query  i posted above will give some result but i don't think that values returned is the one you are after.

maybe this is what you are after

SELECT SS07_payment_plan_chq_info.Acc_num, Sum(SS07_payment_plan_chq_info.Chq_amm) AS SumOfChq_amm
FROM SS07_payment_plan INNER JOIN SS07_payment_plan_chq_info ON SS07_payment_plan.JBA_code = SS07_payment_plan_chq_info.Acc_num
GROUP BY SS07_payment_plan_chq_info.Acc_num;
