I have an access DB with a table (tblPersDetails) and two fields I need to compare to each other.


I need to work out when Rank <> WornRank and display the results in a query. Rank is updated manually, WornRank is updated via a data import/update to function.
What is the best way to achieve this ? Ideally I would like this done in a query or the like, but am open to a better way of achieving this.

I have attached a db file (change from .txt to .mdb) with sample data.

Many thanks
