# Display results from SQL within an Access Database form....

Posted on 2008-10-28

I need to apply the following weighting to the results, on a per row ID basis in to a new field BIM_KPI
The weighting that need to be applied are as follows:-

L1 = 1; L2 *2, L3*3...  having  69 in total (as aresult from input from form)= 414(i.e.69+138+207)   so, 100/414= 0.21545~

For example if we take the first line of the attached  image being ID 29 the weighting should be as follows:
ID = 29
Total_L1 = 17  *1 (applied weighting) = 17
Total_L2 = 27  *2 (applied weighting) = 54
Total_L2 = 25  *3 (applied weighting) = 75

Total       17+54+75= 146
Total BIM_KP1  = 146*0.21545 = 31.45%  two decimal places)

The result is intended to be displayed using  a dashboard builder... see image - swing RAG meter..

something is wrong with this BIM_KP1: CountL([id],"L1"+[id],"L2"*2+[id]*3*0.4831)AS Percentage_KPI

The following SQL was used to give the query results (see attcahed image)
SELECT [BIM Software].ID, CountL([id],"L1") AS Total_L1, CountL([id],"L2") AS Total_L2, CountL([id],"L3") AS Total_L3
FROM [BIM Software]
GROUP BY [BIM Software].ID;

Function CountL(recID, L)
Dim rs As DAO.Recordset, db As DAO.Database, cntL As Integer
Dim j As Integer
Set db = CurrentDb
Set rs = db.OpenRecordset("select * from [BIM Software] where iD=" & recID)
Do Until rs.EOF
For j = 1 To rs.Fields.Count - 1
If rs.Fields(j) = L Then
cntL = cntL + 1
End If

Next
rs.MoveNext
Loop
rs.Close
CountL = cntL
End Function

``````SELECT [BIM Software].ID, CountL([id],"L1") AS Total_L1, CountL([id],"L2") AS Total_L2, CountL([id],"L3") AS Total_L3
FROM [BIM Software]
GROUP BY [BIM Software].ID;

Function CountL(recID, L)
Dim rs As DAO.Recordset, db As DAO.Database, cntL As Integer
Dim j As Integer
Set db = CurrentDb
Set rs = db.OpenRecordset("select * from [BIM Software] where iD=" & recID)
Do Until rs.EOF
For j = 1 To rs.Fields.Count - 1
If rs.Fields(j) = L Then
cntL = cntL + 1
End If

Next
rs.MoveNext
Loop
rs.Close
CountL = cntL
End Function
``````

Could you paste a sample of the underlying data?  And please be specific about which part of all this isn't working.. which part you need help with first.

I'm new to Access... Firstly I would like I believe an SQL query / function solution
that can be applied to the original SQL but having 'weighting' appended to [BIMQuery1),
on a per row ID basis - a new field to be created called [BIM_KPI] at the end of [BIMQuery1]

What I would like is for a user to select by combo boxan  [ID] or [ProjectTitle] ... the  [BIM_KPI] to be displayed in  text box, 0-100% on a dashboard Form, as the user selects the total tthe Red,Amber,Green graphic swing meter displays  - see attached image

The weighting that need to be applied are as follows:-
L1 = 1; L2 *2, L3*3...  having  69 in total (as aresult from input from form)= 414(i.e.69+138+207)   so, 100/414= 0.21545~

For example if we take the first line of the attached  image being ID 29 the weighting should be as follows:
ID = 29
Total_L1 = 17  *1 (applied weighting) = 17
Total_L2 = 27  *2 (applied weighting) = 54
Total_L2 = 25  *3 (applied weighting) = 75

Total       17+54+75= 146
Total BIM_KP1  = 146*0.21545 = 31.45%  two decimal places)

The result is intended to be displayed using  a dashboard builder... see image - swing RAG meter..

something is wrong with this BIM_KP1: CountL([id],"L1"+[id],"L2"*2+[id]*3*0.4831)AS Percentage_KPI

What I need to see is a screen shot of the [BIM Software] table data so that I can see how you have the L-values arranged into rows and columns.

In the meantime, let me take a stab at this to see if we are thinking the same thing:

BIM_KP1: CountL([id],"L1"+[id],"L2"*2+[id]*3*0.4831)AS Percentage_KPI

SELECT ID, ((Total_L1 + Total_L2 * 2 + Total_L3 * 3) * 0.4831) AS Percentage_KPI
FROM (
SELECT [BIM Software].ID, CountL([id],"L1") AS Total_L1, CountL([id],"L2") AS Total_L2, CountL([id],"L3") AS Total_L3
FROM [BIM Software]
GROUP BY [BIM Software].ID) AS Query1
