I have a web site with a membership table (id, lastname, firstname, dateregistered, etc.) and a sessions table (membership id, dateloggedin, etc.) which has a record for each date/time a member has logged into the site. I am trying to determine active members determined by if they have logged into the system within the kast 6 months. I only want to know if they have logged in at least once, I don't want to cound each time they have logged in over the last 6 months. I would like some help on how to write a sql query to give me the results.

Assuming your tables are called Membership and Sessions, try something like:

SELECT DISTINCT M.* FROM Sessions S INNER JOIN Membership M
ON M.id=S.[membership id]
WHERE dateloggedin > Date()-183;

It'll depend on what flavour of SQL you're using (the above is the variety used by Access). You'll also save yourself some potential headaches if you avoid field names with spaces in.
